This course covers injuries, including contact injuries, cardiac arrest, as well as illnesses like an allergic reaction. First aid is an easy skill to learn, and the training is delivered in a series of short videos with knowledge review questions to increase understanding. All the videos are filmed in a martial arts setting and based on real problems that you may face.
