    "Medic 1" :  2 DAY

    This is our most popular two-day course.  This course is perfect for those with little to no previous first aid training.  We will cover aggressive first aid for moderate to severe injuries/illnesses.  Adult, child, infant CPR w/ AED (American Heart Assoc.) will be taught on the morning of the first day. Throughout class, each student will learn by minimal lectures, plenty of hands-on skills practice, and multiple scenarios involving role players. The students will participate in the skills training as individuals and as a team throughout both days. CareFlite will fly out a helicopter, real life missions and weather pending.
