This classroom, when combined with the in-person class, meets the requirements for First Aid, CPR, AED, and O2 Provider for all UTD leadership programs including Divemaster and Instructor, along with the requirements for UTD Rescue and Emergency Procedures class.

The First Aid/CPR/AED/O2 course is designed to study, discuss, analyze and understand a wide variety of scenarios to prepare the student to be a competent first responder in a medical emergency.

There are four sections to this course;

  • First Aid – Trauma, Assessments, and treatments for soft tissue, muscular-skeletal, neurological, punctures/bites/stings, bloodborne pathogens, cardiovascular and respiratory emergencies, decompression illness and other diving maladies. There is also information on emergency planning and response plans.

  • CPR – Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation, including one and two-person CPR, child CPR, rescue breathing and associated barriers, and CPR following spinal or cervical injuries.

  • AED – Use and operation of an Automated External Defibrillator.

  • O2 Provider – Use and operation of oxygen delivery systems, barriers and masks.

The online classroom and downloadable Treatment Guide cover all aspects of the course. The in-person portion of the course covers the practical training necessary to be a first responder for the above emergencies. 

It should be noted that this is not Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or Paramedic training. This course is designed around first response and stabilizing a patient/victim until higher level medical care arrives.

The in-person portion of this program is an academic-only class (no in-water training) normally conducted over one 8-hour day.

The goals of First Aid/CPR/AED/O2 training are:

1. To provide the student with the tools to be a competent first responder to simple medical emergencies and to provide care until a higher level medical care arrives.

2. To provide the awareness of “Check, Call, Care.” In other words, the scene and situation must be safe for the first responder to avoid the situation where the responder is injured, leaving and additional victim in need of care.

3. To provide the understanding that the student must act as a first responder ONLY within his/her level of training.
