First aid is the emergency care and treatment of a sick or injured person before professional medical services are obtained. It is not meant to replace medical diagnosis and treatment. In contrary to misconceptions, first aid is a temporary support until professional medical assistance is available.

This training will utilize continuous assessment methodologies (British Red Cross methodologies) – there will not be a separate written examination unless otherwise requested. The trainer shall keep competency assessment records of each participant throughout the training. Assessment will be based on: (1) attendance and punctuality; (2) participation in class; and (3) performance competency.

On successful completion of the training, a Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Competency certificate will be awarded to each participant.

90% attendance is required to meet certification criteria. Due to unavoidable circumstances, if any participant is unable to meet this requirement, a valid explanation is required.
