ABOUT THIS COURSE

Save lives with your first-aid and CPR knowledge. Learn the skills to act quickly and confidently in an emergency when every second counts


Learn how to save a life in our online training course

You never know when you'll find yourself in an accident or emergency health situation. When your action or inaction can mean the difference between life or death, it's important to always be prepared. Even knowing the very basics of First Aid and CPR can help save a life, and it isn’t complicated or hard to learn. Whether you require a CPR and First Aid certification for work, or just want to be prepared to help those in need, our online course will equip you with the tools and training you need to feel confident and ready to act.

In this course, we will be teaching you practical tips and techniques used by the experts, however, this course will not provide you with a formal qualification to practice professionally –it’s a great starting off point. You will come away with all the tools and training you need to be prepared for most emergency situations.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

In this online CPR and First Aid training, we'll cover:

  • The history of CPR and First Aid and its evolution to modern techniques and practices
  • The basics of First Aid, including wound treatment, creating a splint, treating shot, and administering injections
  • The science behind CPR, so you understand how it works
  • How to prepare for CPR, which includes learning to assess a situation and knowing the appropriate response
  • Step-by step instruction to performing CPR using proper technique

Everyone should take a First Aid and CPR class, and we make it convenient by bringing our virtual classroom to you in one easy course– so you can learn at your own pace. When faced head-on with an emergency, you may not have time to consult the internet, and you may not have equipment to reach out for help. It's usually lack of knowledge and confidence that makes people freeze in an emergency, but this training will empower you to spring to action using industry-approved techniques to safely administer treatment. Our course combines technical knowledge and theory with hands-on application, so you won't just learn how to do something - you'll be able to adapt to the situation. This training is also applicable when you yourself need medical care, so you may just end up saving your own life.

In a life or death situation, every second counts. You never know when this First Aid and CPR training will come in handy, so let’s get you prepared today.

100% AUTHENTIC STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I needed to complete the CPR/First Aid course for Foster Parent classes. I love the ease of doing this in my time, considering I work full-time. Martha Brogdon  - United States

I am so excited about IOA courses. I can’t believe they are so affordable and easy to follow and understand!! I believe I’ve hit the jackpot for online courses!! Thank you IOA!! Christine Reid - Australia

Thumbs up! I have done my first aid many times before except for the practical part and different countries. I felt it was informative and the same as if I had done a 2 Day first aid course in Australia costing $200-$300. Your course was excellent - much of the info was the same or it's common sense to adapt to Australia. Fiona Mcphillimy - Australia

I can’t begin to explain how great your courses are, but here goes. They are comprehensive, offer up-to-date skills and were very enjoyable. What a fantastic academic institution, the prices are fair and with many approaches to pricing, they really do offer excellent opportunities which are affordable. Brian MacGregor - United Kingdom

In the past two years I have taken multiple IOA courses. I am a 46-year-old mom and married. I did not know how to get back into the workforce. My health had changed and so did the demands in the work market. I really thought that I was doomed. I began to research positions and decided to let IOA help me find what I am really good at. Today I am an experienced and well-off BRAND AMBASSADOR thanks to IOA. Through your courses, I learned that I was cut out and built to represent clients at various events doing demonstrations, promotions and sales. IOA helped me to update my resume and get the job! I have been working all over NYC at some of the largest events in the Food Industry. Clients love my work and so do I. It fits my lifestyle and my age. I cannot thank IOA enough for this. My work FB page reflects many of my recent events and it is looking good! Thank you. Marianella Morales - United States

The support team has helped me and even congratulated me once I finished the course which was something I wasn't expecting; but it was nice to feel like you had a friend that helped you accomplish something that you've wanted to do. Kiya Childers - United States

IOA gave me the tools I needed to be a confident, contributing member of my workplace. The information was clearly laid out and allowed me to learn at my convenience. Christina Demers - Canada

Fantastic way to study in your own home, especially if you have kids. It enables me to start as soon as the kids are in bed & fit it around my family life, fantastic :-) Catherine Holmes - United Kingdom
