What is the difference between AHA and ASHI?

American Safety and Health Iinstitute (ASHI) and American Heart Association (AHA) curriculums are identical. AHA requires us to use videos for a majority of the class with very little time given for practical. ASHI is a much more hands-on curriculum with some video and power point portions.

Why is there a difference in cost between ASHI and AHA?

We are able to charge less for American Safety and Health Institute’s classes due to their lower cost of supplies and the time it takes to teach the class. American Heart Association books and supplies cost a considerable amount more per student.

How long does the class take?

Will we have to share training mannequins?

Medic Response Health & Safety prides itself in the quality and maintenance of all its equipment. We have a 1: 1 student to mannequin ratio. All mannequins are cleaned and disinfected after every use. Having your own mannequin makes the environment more conductive to learning and gives the participant a certain level of ease.

Many classes I have taken in the past were video-based and boring. Will we be watching videos for 3 hours?

American Heart Association is a very video-oriented curriculum with little time dedicated for hands-on training. American Safety and Health Institute’s curriculum allows us to do a mostly hands-on class with associated power points. We offer both curriculums to our clients.

Do you offer any first aid kits or response bags?

We can design and stock a First Aid Kit or emergency response bag to meet your specific needs. We do not offer inventory management or restocking services. Once you product is delivered, it becomes your responsibility for proper maintenance and restocking. Due Medic Response Health & Safety can offer guidance on restocking procedures and minimum ANSI and OHSA reqirements. You can purchase them from us or go to our website www.firstaidsuppliesplus.com

Do you offer on-site training?

Medic Response Health & Safety does have a training facility, however we do most of our training at a location provided by our clients or Medic Response Health & Safety will get a spot for the class.

When do you offer classes?

We work with our clients to provide class times that will minimize impact on their staffing. We have the ability to offer classes at any time, including overnight.

How do I schedule a class?

When it comes to registering for a class or hosting a class, you have many options. You may either register online or download and print the application and fax it to us already filled out.

What is the largest class size you can handle?

We pride ourselves on being able to handle any training situation a client presents to us. Medic Response Health & Safety will cater a training package that meets you facility’s needs. Please give us reasonable notice when you have large groups so we may coordinate the logistics involved when working with larger groups. Also, be aware that large groups of people usually require multiple sessions due to standards on instructor to student ratios.

Do you offer certification tracking so I know when my employees’ certifications will expire?

Medic Response Health & Safety has a customized database for certification tracking. We will automatically track and contact you in regards to expiring certifications within your organization.

Are all of your instructors Firefighters, EMTs, Paramedics, or experienced health care providers?

We believe it is hard to teach someone about first aid or cpr when you have very little or no experience performing the skills. All classes are always lead by a Firefighter, Paramedic, or experienced emergency health care provider.

Do you offer any other classes not listed on your website?

Medic Response Health & Safety has a wide array of classes available. If you do not see the class you are looking for, please contact us. If we do not offer the class ourselves, we can most likely recommend someone who does.

Do you sell AEDS?

Yes we currently sell and provide all training for your AED sales and servicing needs.

What are the legal ramifications of training?

When your employer provides training with the expectation for you to use it while on duty you now have a “Duty to act”. If you are not on duty when an emergency occurs and you intervene and help someone you will be protected by the “Good Samaritan Law”.
