First aid for convulsive seizures

The Seizure Recognition and First Aid certification training provides information to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence in recognizing seizures and safely administering seizure first aid. The first aid procedures in the course reflect the standard of knowledge and current best practices. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a two-year certification. The course lasts approximately 90 minutes.

Knowing how to help someone during a seizure can make a difference and save a life. While there are many different types of seizures, people who experience seizures may be confused, not aware of what is going on, or unconscious. A person could get hurt during a seizure, a seizure could last too long, or the seizures could cluster.

Seizure First Aid Certification is designed for people who:

● Have a family member, loved one, or friend with seizures
● Have a job where you provide care for people with seizures
