  • What's the difference between Big Blue's EFR course and the Red Cross first aid course?
    First, we provide more material for self-study and review. Our students can use the participant manual for preview and review. Students already receive the EFR Primary Care and Secondary Care DVD, which shows students details on each step of the skills. Furthermore, Big Blue's EFR course focuses on students' hands-on experience. We require of students to master both primary and secondary care skills and encourage them to use them when face with medical emergencies. Also, we limit our class size and instructor/mannequin ratio to ensure every student has adequate time to practice skill and meet the performance requirements.
