NAUI Introduces New First Aid Course Materials
NAUI is extending its award-winning training product line and making it simple for
divers to receive their First Aid certification, with the addition of the NAUI First
Aid Textbook and certificate student packet (item #90040), NAUI First Aid Instructor
Guide (software package, item #16021), and the NAUI First Aid Instructor Guide (loose-leaf
version, item #14005).
NAUI’s all inclusive First Aid materials are now available, and contain all the
standard first aid information, with additional subjects including: Automated External
Defibrillation (AED), Blood-borne Pathogens, Emergency Oxygen Administration and
First Aid for Aquatic Life Injuries.
Both the NAUI First Aid Textbook and Instructor Guide were professionally written
and reviewed by an expert team of physicians, researchers and emergency medical
technicians and include all of the current International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation
(ILCOR) recommendations, announced in December 2005.
“For the first time in the emergency responder training market there exists an international
consensus on what constitutes effective CPR and First Aid skills and the training
methods and content needed to educate the general public and professional rescuer
communities,” said Jed Livingstone, NAUI Vice President. “This is also the first
time that NAUI members who train and prepare divers for NAUI membership no longer
need to rely on a third party to finish the job. Everything they need is available
The NAUI First Aid textbook includes icon-based notations and highlights key points
within the text that form the basis for the final exam. The NAUI First Aid Instructor
Guide follows the same comprehensive format as all of our other instructor guides,
and is available in a software only package or in a loose-leaf printed version.
The CD-ROM includes PowerPoint presentations as well as PDF files and MS-Word documents
to suit your individual needs.
“The timing for this new product line couldn’t be better. All of the first aid and
CPR training organizations, such as Red Cross, American Heart Association and the
European Resuscitation Council have had to update and reissue their training materials.
This means that every CPR and First Aid instructor will have to retool and purchase
new instructor guides, textbooks and videos to continue their instructor ratings,”
said Chad Barbay, NAUI’s U.S. Territory Manager. “However, with the new NAUI First
Aid course you can skip buying an expensive new video or DVD because you can teach
all of the courses by using the teaching slides and performing skill demonstrations.
We can do this because we know that NAUI instructors can actually teach a subject;
and videos—while useful as a training aide—need not be required. We will also be
offering some great packages of the new materials that will really benefit our members
and affiliated retailers.”
