ASHI Emergency Oxygen
The 1.5-3 hour Emergency Oxygen administration program is a critical step in treating a severe or life-threatening illness or injury.

This versatile program is based upon the 2010 CPR and First Aid Guidelines, Caring for Our Children, 3rd Ed; and other evidence-based treatment recommendations.
ASHI Advanced First Aid
For the person who needs or desires more first aid training than Basic First Aid, but not to the level of Emergency Medical Response. Perfect for corporate emergency response teams, this 17-21 hour course presents many of the most common illnesses and injuries responders are likely to encounter.
ASHI Emergency Medical Response
ASHI Emergency Medical Response is designed to provide non-EMS responders including government, corporate, law enforcement, and corrections personnel with a level of training comparable to Emergency Medical Responder. This 48-hour course is consistent with national EMS curriculum requirements and educations standards; however, it is not the intent of the ASHI Emergency Medical Response program to cross the EMS scope of practice threshold.
ASHI Wilderness Emergency Care Courses
Wilderness environments create special situations not usually encountered in an urban or suburban environment. The Wilderness Emergency Care (WEC) program supports a family of courses to meet the needs of everyone with outdoor interests, from easy day trips to challenging and technical activities, including wilderness rescue. The WEC textbook not only explains the concepts in clear language, it also shows you how to do all the skills, step by step, with many photos and drawings.
