The purpose of the American Red Cross CPR/AED/First Aid for the Professional Rescuer Course is to teach those with a duty to act, the knowledge and skills needed to respond appropriately to breathing and cardiac emergencies until more advanced medical personnel take over. This includes the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to care for a victim experiencing cardiac arrest. The first aid portion of this course is designed to teach participants to recognize and respond to emergencies including sudden illness, poisonings, and cold-related emergencies. Additionally, participants will learn how to administer first aid care for bleeding emergencies and bone and joint injuries.
To successfully complete the course, you must attend the entire course, participate in all skill sessions and scenarios, demonstrate competency in all required skills and scenarios, and pass the ﬁnal written exam with a minimum grade of 80 percent.
Some skill sessions require strenuous physical activity. Please wear comfortable clothing and avoid wearing dangling jewelry or jewelry with sharp edges. If you have a medical condition or disability or if you have any questions regarding your ability to participate fully in this course, discuss this with your health care provider and your instructor before you start the course.
