First Responder - 4 hour

 

We try to provide the best environment possible for students to learn the didactic material and psychomotor skills to become certified as a First Responder by the American Safety and Health institute. We will be as fair as possible and give every opportunity for students to excel in the course. However, we also believe that students MUST be prepared to give the time and energy to the course by coming to class ready to learn and by participating in practice sessions; this means students will have read the assigned chapter prior to coming to class.
