Our 1-day CFR advanced course is an advanced course for the Cardiac First Responder. A cardiac first response advanced level is a person trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) who can respond to someone who has suddenly collapsed.

In addition to responding to patients during their duties, responders can provide lifesaving skills in their homes and communities.

PHECC recommend that if there is any doubt about the necessity of using your advanced skills, then CFR community is more applicable.
