Courses cover the current guidelines for Basic CPR/AED, First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogens in the Community and Workplace. Courses are provided through a combination of classroom lecture, practical discussion, and hands-on skills testing. An instructional DVD may be used to show emergency situations and demonstrations of emergency response. Participants will gain basic knowledge on the following topics:
- Breathing and Cardiac Emergencies
- Bleeding Control and Shock
- Eye Injuries
- Sudden Illnesses (Diabetic Emergencies, Allergic Reactions, Hypothermia & Heat Stress/Stroke, Seizures and more
- Major and Minor Wound Care
- Legal Aspects (Good Samaritan)
Plan to allow an adequate amount of time for your class. CPR/AED and First Aid usually runs between 4 and 6 hours depending on the number of participants and their level of skill and experience. Frequent breaks will be taken to allow participants to remain fresh and alert. Depending on the time of day a 30 minute lunch break may be taken. We understand that time is valuable and all classes will be conducted as efficiently as possible.
KEMI Loss Education and Safety will provide all training materials needed for the class including: Breathing Barriers, Manikins and Lungs, Training Aids and DVD’s, First Aid Practice Supplies, and Student Handbooks used during class.
In order for the class to be conducted the instructor needs the capability to play a DVD. If a TV and DVD player aren’t available, a computer with DVD capabilities and a projector may be used. If DVD capabilities are not available on-site, let a member of KEMI Loss Education and Safety know when scheduling so alternate arrangements can be made.
It is also important to have an adequate amount of space to conduct the class. Due to the length of the class it is important that each participant has at least a chair to sit in. During the skills testing portion of the class, participants will need to work with CPR manikins on the floor. If adequate space isn’t available in the training room itself for skills testing, the skills may be conducted in another area. If participants have an issue which prevents them from getting on the floor, skills can be conducted on a table or other elevated surface.
Cost & Certification
CPR/AED, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogens Training is provided at no cost to KEMI policyholders. There is, however, an $8 per individual administrative fee that covers the cost of the certification cards which are issued to each participant.
Upon successful completion of the skills testing and course exams each participant will be certified and issued a certification card. ASHI certifications are valid for 2 years. On the back of each student card there is an access code which will allow the attendees to download course handbooks and receive updates regarding guideline changes and re-certification reminders.
Payment for Cards
KEMI will send an invoice to the policyholder contact after the training has been conducted.
