Student First Aid is a FREE program designed to incorporate first aid into secondary school curriculum on a large scale while overcoming the time and cost barriers with which schools are often faced.
This is done by replacing the conventional classroom-based first aid course with an e-learning course. This less expensive and more flexible option allows students to learn first aid from home or from a computer lab while allowing them to grasp concepts at their own pace.
Each school then has the option to add a hands-on component, in which the student’s cognitive knowledge is evaluated on a manikin by a trained skill evaluator.
Educators are provided the tools to monitor the online first aid course as an assignment. Teachers and administrators can view completion and test scores and even order cards all from a single online dashboard.
Training of skill evaluators, training on the system, and follow-up service are all included so that implementation is fast and easy. This program is completely free. The only possible expense results from the addition of the hands-on component. More details are available in the Blended Course Implementation section.

All ProTrainings courses confirm comprehension in two ways. The first is through the pre-test process. Students are asked pre-test questions after each group of videos to confirm comprehension of the major points within those videos.
After the training section, students are asked to take a final test. Students must score an 80% or better to pass. They are able to retest if they fail, and each test is recorded and viewable through the teacher dashboard. The test is comprised of multiple-choice, scenario-based questions.
