Emergency First Aid Fundamentals EFAF 

Based on the USCCA EFAF and AHA 

Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Curriculum


USCCA Training is the nation’s leading training and education resource, We focus on learning that makes you a more responsible American and a protector of your family in any scenario. That’s why we created Emergency First Aid Fundamentals.

If you’re ready to become your family’s first responder in an emergency situation, like a car accident, serious fall, gunshot wound, or other medical emergency, this training cannot be missed.

During this training, you’ll do more than simply sit in a classroom learning about these topics. Your USCCA instructor will work you through a dozen real-world scenarios using simulated patients and the actual products (or field expedients) that you’ll need to understand if you hope to save a life.

Our Emergency First Aid Fundamentals class teaches you basic first aid and lifesaving techniques to be used in the event of a medical emergency.

You will learn how to properly assess a patient and how to deal with significant issues such as venous and arterial bleeding, compromised airway, head, chest, and spinal injuries, broken bones, burns, heart attacks, seizures, strokes, and more. Finally, students will learn how to build their own First Aid/Trauma Kit.

I began a life of service at 15 when I joined the Waynesboro First Aid Crew as a Junior member. This is the same place my Grandfather and Mother were both EMTs and ALS Providers. At 16, I became an EMT shortly after a VA CT /Paramedic and continued to be a provider as a volunteer and as a Career Firefighter Medic until age 36, with an overlap in starting my own company that I sold and retired from in 2020 now teach what I have known for a lifetime You have to be your OWN first responder, and you need to be this now more than ever!

  • Patient assessment
