First Aid Program Updates for Training Centers

This information covers updating of the NSC First Aid programs to the newest 2020 ILCOR Guidelines. Thousands of steps are required to complete the update of a single NSC program, which is one reason NSC programs are so highly sought after. The level of detail and quality that goes into each one makes all the difference, and helps us strengthen the future of NSC and fuel our many missions. 

The NSC First Aid and Product Development teams appreciate your patience on this journey.
