instruction for the course. The course is designed to
provide you with the tools to make critical medical and

include: basic life support, responding to trauma,
prevention and treatment of blood-born pathogens, treatment
of infectious disease, management of bone and joint
injuries, management of spinal or head injury, response to
sudden illness, and evacuation planning and implementation.
