The Emergency First Response Care for Children course (CFC), is ideal for parents and grandparents. This innovative CPR, AED and First Aid training course, teaches you how to provide emergency care for injured or ill children from ages 1 to 8, as well as infants. In this course, you’ll gain confidence to render assistance by following the same priorities of care used by medical professionals.
