Course Objectives

The overall objective of the course is twofold:

  1. Provide the basic skills necessary to engage in emergency first aid procedures that are pertinent to health and fitness-related facilities, including life-threatening emergencies such as heart attack.
  2. Provide an overview of the prevention of accidents in health and fitness-related facilities as well as other recreation and functionally related facilities. The goal is that the student can take notice of potential hazards in such facilities and report them to the senior management or correct them when appropriate.

Students will be required to demonstrate competency in both objectives listed above, by showing appropriate certificates in relationship to number 1 and by completing the required work as described in the modules for number 2.
