American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid

This course is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services arrives.

Traumatic Injury Management 1

This four-hour course is designed for individuals with little to no training in the management of traumatic injuries. It will include both lectures and hands-on training in a variety of bleeding control devices. The composition of an individual first aid kit for bleeding control will also be discussed. 

Traumatic Injury Management 2

Prerequisite: Traumatic Injury Management 1 (TIM 1)


This course is a continuation of the Traumatic Injury Management 1 class. The hands-on application of skills acquired in the TIM 1 class will be tested in multiple scenarios under a variety of circumstances that you may find yourself in, which require the use of your training. Students will be able to build their own Individual First Aid Kits to mirror their current setup, or test out a new design to see its versatility.
