First Aid Update Clinic Reminder
All Lifesaving Instructors and First Aid Instructors MUST attend
a First Aid Update Clinic. You may not teach the new standards
until you have done so. During a First Aid Update Clinic
instructors learn the rationale behind CPR and First Aid changes,
and how to properly teach the new standards. Update Clinics are not
the same as re-certs and do not count as a re-cert for Standard
First Aid and CPR-C. For more information on First Aid Update
Clinics refer to page two and three of the Summer 2012 Lifeliner. To find a First
Aid Update Clinic near you use our FIND A COURSE function or contact your
employer. Help spread the word, remind your fellow instructors to
attend an Update Clinic!
