Students learn how to manage different kinds of injuries such as heavy bleeding and burns, as well as how to perform correct and adequate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillation (AED). AEDs are machines that are attached to the chest and supply the heart with needed shock.

HCP is for health care providers who work in health care facilities. These levels last 4, 5, and 6 hours long respectively.

Certificates are only valid for three years and can be renewed (must be current) through recertification programs held at least twice weekly. Standard first aid recertification for first aid is 8 hours long, inclusive of CPR level C recertification.
