Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 February 2002
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (First aid): 11.160
scope:

This guide covers the minimum requirements needed to train a student to assess and manage illness and injury prior to: (1) notification, arrival, or treatment by traditional EMS agencies, or combination thereof, or (2) management of a minor emergency medical incident instead of an EMS response.

This guide also recommends minimum instructor qualifications, program logistics, and medical oversight considerations.

This guide does not delineate a new level of formalized education for prehospital medical provision. This guide does not replace or decrease the need for appropriate agencies to seek state or national licensure or certification as an First Responder or Emergency Medical Technician (Basic, Intermediate, or Paramedic).

Content and skills appropriate to the first aid provider's scope of care and specific to the hazards or risks of particular industries and occupations may be added by program developers, instructors, and employers. These changes should be consistent with the intent and design of this guide.
