This Course enhances First Aid skills. Through classroom and practical application, Students will learn the theories behind the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses.

Students learn about each of the body systems and how illness or injury might impact the ability to function and ways to stabilize the problem in order to get to a higher level of care.
