Course Delivery Methods
First Response courses offer a flexible delivery method
to meet your individual requirements. Participants master
required skills and knowledge through a combination
of independent study, instructor led skill development
and scenario practice sessions. Instructors can also
add relevant information to meet specific workplace
or local training requirements.
With today's fast-paced lifestyle, people find they
not only enjoy studying on their own time, but tend
to learn and remember more. Educational studies consistently
show that independent study leads to better assimilation
and retention of the information .
The benefits of the Emergency First Response independent study learning method include:
Better participant preparation
Independent study accommodates individual learning styles and allows participants to learn at their own pace. This leads to better preparation before skill development, particularly when participants watch the video and see role-model skill demonstrations.
More effective use of time
Independent study allows the instructor to focus participant contact time on skill development and scenario practice. Participants arrive prepared for hands-on training, which makes in-class time shorter to accommodate busy schedules.
Focused learning time

Disease Protection & Barrier Use Primary Assessment
Obstructed Airway Management (child and infant) Rescue
Breathing (child and infant) Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
(child and infant) Automated External Defibrillator
(AED) use Serious Bleeding Shock Management Spinal Injury
Since independent study reduces
the amount of time an instructor must spend covering
general background knowledge, more time can be spent
on skill development to meet specific workplace safety
requirements. The learning time is focused to fill in
any knowledge gaps and to provide information relevant
to local regulations.
