Seizure Recognition and First Aid Certification Training

Knowing how to help someone during a seizure can make a difference and save a life. While there are many different types of seizures, during many of them a person may be confused, not aware of what is going on, or unconscious. Most seizures end on their own or in a few minutes. Some people go back to what they were doing quickly. Others need to recover, and it could take minutes to hours to resume usual activity. A person could get hurt during a seizure or a seizure could last too long, or the seizures could cluster. This training will provide you the information to correctly help a person having a seizure.
