Twenty-three percent of people experiencing a traumatic medical emergency die before first responders arrive because no one on the scene was trained in first aid.



When someone experiences a medical emergency, there is a silent response gap - the time between the occurrence of the medical emergency and the arrival of professional first responders. During this critical period those injured can deteriorate and can die before first responders arrive. In the United States, the average response time for EMS is approximately seven minutes in the city and fifteen minutes outside the city.

No Boring Textbooks to Read

This course is unlike any other first aid course. You can take you time completing this course. There are no boring textbooks to read. Each first aid technique in this course is explained using simplified, one-page algorithms that distill dozens on pages of text into a step-by-step patient care flow diagram. Each page is explained using concise, to-the-point presentations and demonstrations that are less than nine minutes in length. Your time is not wasted listening to the instructor telling “war stories” and information that does not contribute to learning first aid skills.

Your Instructor

Jeffrey Imel, WEMT, NREMT

I am a National Registry Emergency Medical Technician and Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician. I hold instructor certifications in First Aid, CPR/AED, First Responder and Wilderness First Aid.

My life mission is to educate people with no medical background how to provide first aid in the critical first minutes of a medical emergency and continue to provide care while waiting on EMS to arrive. I have over three decades of teaching experience and I believe you will find my method of instruction to be enjoyable.

I am the author of five first aid  books and three apps. My books illustrate first aid care and treatment using intuitive “Yes-No” decision diagrams. These books significantly reduce the time first aid students spend taking notes in class and students who use my books report increased retention and achieve higher test scores. My book and teaching method will increase your confidence and serve as an excellent review tool to help you keep your knowledge refreshed.​
