ASHI Basic First Aid was created to help students develop basic first aid knowledge, skills, and the confidence to respond. The program is an excellent choice for both the community and workplace setting, and is consistent with recommendations of the 2010 National First Aid Science Advisory Board and OSHA’s best practices for first aid training programs in the workplace.

We can come to your business or organization or you can take one of our ASHI Courses.

Skills Evaluation  

Students must perform required skills competently without assistance.

Important Considerations

  • Estimated time to complete: Initial training: 3-4 hours
  • Renewal training: Less than initial instructional time
  • Successful completion is based on achievement of the core learning objectives rather than a prescribed instruction time.
