EmergyCare Training Institute
Emergencies are unpredictable and can happen anytime and anywhere. You never know when you may need to assist a coworker, friend, or family member. Do you know what to do if someone is choking, drowning, or having a heart attack? In some medical emergencies, having a basic understanding of First Aid and CPR can save a life. Additionally, immediate medical attention can stop injuries from getting worse, helping the healing process get off to a faster start. First Aid and CPR training can prepare you to handle these situations until the emergency medical team arrives.
The EmergyCare Training Institute offers a wide variety of programs open to the public. All persons are required to complete the skills associated with each course to pass.
Courses that are scheduled periodically may be canceled due to a lack of enrollment. If a course is canceled the student will be contacted.
