Want to be a great dive buddy? Want to have the confidence to handle an emergency should it arise? This course will give you the tools to do all of this. During this course students will learn how to assess and deal with emergency situations. First aid treatment for minor injuries and major traumas are discussed and practiced. First Aid does include, but is by no means limited to, diving related issues. Current CPR techniques are discussed and mastered through realistic practice sessions. No CPR class would be complete without the inclusion of Automatic Defibrillator usage.
NAUI First Aid can be conducted as a comprehensive course including all the segments (First Aid, CPR, AED, Blood-borne Pathogens and Emergency Oxygen Administration) in a single schedule or each of the segments may be delivered separately to meet specific needs of the students who may only need training in one discipline or another. Skills and information complies with current ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) recommendations and is US Coast Guard Approved. This course meets requirements for NAUI Rescue Diver and NAUI Advanced Rescue Diver course prerequisites as well as those for NAUI Leadership.
