Why Should You Take our CPR/First Aid Online Course?


Have you ever felt the vigor to respond in an emergency but lacked the correct knowledge to do so? Well, there are many instances in life where we wish to serve humanity but fall short due to our limited information on the subject. Consider taking our online LIVE and Recorded CPR and First Aid course if you want to get out of a helpless situation like this.

Is There Any Benefit Of Taking A First Aid Course At All?

We believe that a large part of knowing how to act during a traumatic situation comes from having adequate learning of the topic. Knowledge is only possible if you are prepared for facing such a situation and aware of the necessary steps that you should take to intervene.

Being thorough with your First Aid skills gives you a chance to respond to emergencies with confidence. Once you know the protocol you have to follow, you have a level of courage and determination to help a casualty who may be going through any trauma.

Items Included In A First Aid Kit Checklist?

Before you add an item to your first aid kit, you need to know what it is and how to make use of it in case of an emergency. Keep your first aid kit up to date and plan it accordingly. Some of the must-haves for every first aid kit are listed below. However, a detailed explanation of each item will be given in the live section as our instructor will go over the entire first aid kit thoroughly.

  • Allergy medicine (preferably epinephrine)
  • Adhesive tape
  • Aloe vera gel
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandages in different size
  • Swat T or other tourniquets to control bleeding
  • Cold packs
  • Gauze rolls and pads
  • Hand sanitizer and latex gloves
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen
  • Scissors and tweezers

What Does Our Cpr Training Include?

CPR training takes each individual through a protocol that assesses the consciousness and breathing of a casualty. Once there is relevant information regarding these two statuses, the individual can proceed towards the ‘CAB’ protocol. Our training deals with the protocol in the following way.

Assessing Personal Safety

No matter how grave the situation gets, we always encourage our trainers to assess scene safety first. It could be a mass shooting scene or a building on fire. Unless you do not find it safe to enter the building, you shouldn’t. You do not have to risk your life for saving others. Only intervene in traumatic scenarios once you feel that there is guaranteed safety of your life.

Checking Casualty’s Response And Breathing Status

After ensuring scene safety, it is crucial to assess the casualty’s consciousness status. You can do this by tapping the shoulder, calling the casualty by their name, or a kick on foot. A visual representation of the assessment is shown in our online course, which can make it clearer for you. No response with any of these three gestures is a clear sign of the casualty being unresponsive.

Assess breathing now. If you find that the breathing is irregular or absent, you move into compressions straightaway. However, before this, there is an essential responsibility that you have to take care of. Request someone around to call 911, to get an AED and ask about opioid overdose. These three points are also elaborated in our live courses.


If you find there is no breath or irregular breaths, you go to compressions. There are 30 compressions followed by two rescue breaths. This cycle needs to be repeated until the AED arrives.

The AED usually has scissors that you can use to cut the clothes and place the pads in contact with the skin. We teach you how to use the AED fully in our live courses with proper management and handling techniques. It is a super beginner-friendly tool and is easy to use, so learners do not have a tough time getting the hang of it.

A vital statistic provided by AHA (American Heart Association) regarding AED is that for every minute that passes after two minutes of neither having CPR nor AED placed on the unresponsive individual, the chance of survival decreases by 10% for every minute.

There are specific guidelines that you have to take care of before performing a CPR that prove to be life-saving, which are explained in our live session by our instructor.

To perform the CPR, you have to start by placing the heel of your dominant hand on the middle of the casualty’s chest. Interlock it with your non-dominant hand. Make sure your elbows are straight, and arms are perpendicular as you start to apply pressure onto the casualty’s chest. Arch your back over the body of the individual so that you are using force from your shoulders.

Maintain 100-120 compressions per minute. You have to do these in a cycle of 30 compressions followed by two rescue breaths through a rescue breathing mask. To make your compressions even you can sing ‘baby shark’ or ‘stayin’ alive.’ A full flow of this procedure is demonstrated on our live CPR course.

If you wish to attend our live session on CPR and First Aid Training to learn the protocol explained above in detail with lots of interaction, then you can sign up for our course. There is a lot to learn in our online session, which will last for around 60-90 minutes and is hosted by our talented instructor. Happy resuscitating!

ReShaping Education in 2020

Three ways the COVID-19 pandemic could reshape education.

  • The coronavirus pandemic has changed how millions around the globe are educated.
  • New solutions for education could bring much-needed innovation.
  • Given the digital divide, new shifts in education approaches could widen equality gaps.

In a matter of weeks, coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed how students are educated around the world. Those changes give us a glimpse at how education could change for the better – and the worse – in the long term.

With the coronavirus spreading rapidly across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States, countries have taken swift and decisive actions to mitigate the development of a full-blown pandemic. In the past two weeks, there have been multiple announcements suspending attendance at schools and universities. As of March 13, the OECD estimated that over 421 million children are affected due to school closures announced or implemented in 39 countries. Also, another 22 states have announced partial “localized” closures.

These risk-control decisions have led millions of students into temporary ‘home-schooling’ situations, especially in some of the most heavily impacted countries, like China, South Korea, Italy, and Iran. These changes have certainly caused a degree of inconvenience, but they have also prompted new examples of educational innovation. Although it is too early to judge how reactions to COVID-19 will affect education systems around the world, signs are suggesting that it could have a lasting impact on the trajectory of learning innovation and digitization. 

Below, we follow three trends that could hint at future transformations:

1. Education – nudged and pushed to change – could lead to surprising innovations

The slow pace of change in academic institutions globally is lamentable, with centuries-old, lecture-based approaches to teaching, entrenched institutional biases, and old classrooms. However, COVID-19 has become a catalyst for educational institutions worldwide to search for innovative solutions in a relatively short period.

To help slow the virus’ spread, students in Hong Kong started to learning at home, in February, via interactive apps. In China, 120 million Chinese got access to learning material through live television broadcasts.

Other more straightforward – yet no less creative – solutions have been implemented around the globe. In one Nigerian school, standard asynchronous online learning tools (such as reading material via Google Classroom), were augmented with synchronous face-to-face video instruction, to help preempt school closures.

Similarly, students at one school in Lebanon began leveraging online learning, even for subjects such as physical education. Students shot and sent over their videos of athletic training and sports to their teachers as “homework,” pushing students to learn new digital skills. One student’s parent remarked, “while the sports exercise took a few minutes, my son spent three hours shooting, editing, and sending the video in the right format to his teacher.”

With 5G technology becoming more prevalent in countries such as China, U.S., and Japan, we will see learners and solution providers genuinely embracing the ‘learning anywhere, anytime’ concept of digital education in a range of formats. Traditional in-person classroom learning will be complemented with new learning modalities – from live broadcasts to ‘educational influencers’ to virtual reality experiences. Education could become a habit that integrates into daily routines – an authentic lifestyle.

2. Public-private educational partnerships could grow in importance

In just the past few weeks, we have seen learning consortiums and coalitions taking shape, with diverse stakeholders – including governments, publishers, education professionals, technology providers, and telecom network operators – coming together to utilize digital platforms as a temporary solution to the crisis. In emerging countries where the government has predominantly provided education, this could become a prevalent and consequential trend to future learning.

In China, the Ministry of Education has assembled a group of diverse constituents to develop a new cloud-based, online learning and broadcasting platform as well as to upgrade a suite of education infrastructure, led by the Education Ministry and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

Similarly, the Hong Kong-based readtogether.hk forum (China Daily video here) is a consortium of over 60 educational organizations, publishers, media, and entertainment industry professionals, providing more than 900 educational assets, including videos, book chapters, assessment tools, and counseling services for free. The consortium intends to continue using and maintaining the platform even after COVID-19 is contained.

Through examples like these, it is evident that educational innovation is receiving attention beyond the typical government-funded or non-profit-backed social project. In the past decade, we have already seen far greater interest and investment coming from the private sector in education solutions and innovation. From Microsoft and Google in the U.S. to Samsung in Korea to Tencent, Ping An, and Alibaba in China, corporations are awakening to the strategic imperative of an educated populace. While most initiatives to date have been limited in scope, and relatively isolated, the pandemic could pave the way for much larger-scale, cross-industry coalitions formed around a common educational goal.

3. The digital divide could widen

Most schools in affected areas are finding stop-gap solutions to continue teaching, but the quality of learning is heavily dependent on the level and quality of digital access. After all, only around 60% of the globe’s population is online. While virtual classes on personal tablets may be the norm in Hong Kong, for example, many students in less developed economies rely on lessons and assignments sent via WhatsApp or email.

Moreover, the less affluent and digitally savvy individual families are, the further their students are left behind. When classes transition online, these children lose out because of the cost of digital devices and data plans.

Unless access costs decrease and quality of access increase in all countries, the gap in education quality, and thus socioeconomic equality, will be further exacerbated. The digital divide could become more extreme if educational accessibility is dictated by access to the latest technologies.

The rapid spread of COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of building resilience to face various threats, from pandemic disease to extremist violence to climate insecurity, and even, yes, rapid technological change. The pandemic is also an opportunity to remind ourselves of the skills students need in this unpredictable world, such as informed decision making, creative problem solving, and perhaps above all, adaptability. Resilience must be built into our educational system to ensure those skills remain a priority for all students.

How Dental Administration Can Benefit From Being Certified In Dental X-Rays

dental x-ray certification

If you work within the dental industry, becoming certified in dental x-rays is required for clinical staff; however, it can be beneficial to the dental administration staff.
