Emergency First Aid with CPR-B
Duration: Full day
Cost: $125.00 per person
Silecio offers First Aid courses through the Lifesaving Society as an affiliate. Emergency First Aid with CPR-B is a full day course designed for people who want a general knowledge of first aid and the emergency treatment of injuries.
Some of the skills taught include victim assessment, importance of barrier devices, use of bystanders, rescue breathing, CPR, choking, external bleeding and how to respond to someone having a heart attack vs. Angina or stroke vs TIA. Emergency First Aid (EFA) includes CPR Level-B certification with AED skills.
EFA certification is valid for 3 years from the certification date. If the certification expires past the 3 year mark, candidates will no longer be eligible for the re-certification (recert) and must take the full 8 hour course again. Recerts done within the 3 year mark will be 1 day for 4 hours and that recert will be valid for another cycle of 3 years.
Once that second cycle of 3 years expires, it is no longer eligible for a recert and individuals must take the full course again. You may not recert a qualification more than once and that recert must be done with the same agency.
