In the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. Approximately 300,000 people in the United States experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year. Approximately 4 out of 5 sudden cardiac arrests happen at home.   When the heart stops beating, a victim’s chance of survival decreases by 7-10% for every minute that defibrillation is delayed.

About half of Americans (49%) have one of three key risk factors that increase their chances for heart disease or having a heart attack:  high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol, smoking, Other medical conditions and lifestyle choices that can put people at risk include diabetes, obesity, and excessive alcohol use.   Few victims experiencing sudden cardiac arrest outside of a hospital survive unless a rapid sequence of events takes place in the first few minutes: Recognition and Action, CPR, Defibrillation, Advanced Care. Learn life-saving skills today. Be prepared to help others in need tomorrow.” © ECSI)) https://www.youtube.com/embed/0GUnXHXw3D4

We are cleared to teach the newly approved Boy Scout’s Wilderness First Aid course. We provide training and skills for all civilians, medical professionals, and mariners as well as safety lectures. Our instructors are approved and certified by the following organizations: American Heart Association (AHA), Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI), American Safety Health Institute (ASHI), OSHA and the United States Coast Guard at the National Maritime Center.

We have created a unique section designed strictly for the hotel and hospitality industry which is included when we teach the existing Bloodborne and Airborne Pathogen class. In hotels, motels, and restaurants all over the country, jobs are being done carelessly while workers contaminate themselves and the people tthey are attending.

has increased, thus lowering productivity and profit.

As you may be aware, many states and agencies, including OSHA are mandating that all organizations are required to have basically trained personnel to act as interim first responders until EMTs, Paramedics and other professionals can arrive on the scene.

Legislation in May 2001 mandated that all public schools in New York State be equipped with AEDs in their buildings; this includes all sport venues. The “Louis’ Law.” requires teachers and coaches to be certified in CPR/AED (automatic external defibrillators). In recent years, an increasing number of private companies have added AED’s (automated external defibrillators) in office buildings, shopping malls, health clubs and even on commercial airliners. This use of equipment must be by certified people who must have other supportive training covering basic First Aid and CPR.

To assist you in meeting regulatory demands and for you to provide a safe environment for your associates, employees and customers, we at AG Specialty Services Inc. would like to help you formalize a training program. We would bring our instructors and equipment to you if needed and if you do have some current certifications, we can provide the renewal training.

Payments for courses are to be paid in advance. Upon receipt of payment, books will be provided for study in advance of class. Classes are held in Floral Park, New York and West Palm Beach, Florida. AG Specialty Services Inc. reserves the right to cancel classes if the minimum amount of students is not met. If AG Specialty Services Inc. cancels any courses, money deposits will be refunded in full. The following pages within this this Brochure contain our course offerings.

We look forward to meeting with you to discuss how we can be of assistance to you and your business. Ask about our corporate or group rates and our pricing on all Jones and Bartlett books http://www.jbpub.com/ or Pearson Publishing Books http://www.bradybooks.com as

pricing is considerably less than popular book stores.

Course Name: Instructor Training (ECSI)

If you have little teaching experience but would like to train others to perform life-saving skills like basic life support, automated external defibrillation (AED), or administering first aid, you can participate in an ECSI Instructor Development Course (IDEC). This course covers topics such as teaching methodologies, complying with ECSI Policies and procedures, following course objectives, and conducting skills practice sessions.

The purpose of this course is to assist training providers and their teaching staff in organizing and introducing new training courses, or in enhancing, updating or supplementing existing training material, so that the quality and effectiveness of the training courses may thereby be improved.

It is not the intention of this course program to present instructors with a rigid “teaching package, which they are expected to “follow blindly”. Nor is it the intention to substitute the instructor’s presence with audio-visual or programmed material. As in all training endeavors, the knowledge, skills and dedication of the instructors are the key components in the transfer of knowledge and skills to those being trained through the courses.

We evaluate all instructors.

The Instructor Course is designed by Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) and AG Specialty Services is responsible for Quality Control of their training center.

The combat medic of today is the most technically advanced course ever produced. Such an advanced technician requires an advanced teaching and learning system.

The course was created to serve as a repository of the skills that the combat medics must learn to achieve entry level competence.

Today’s combat medics must be an expert in emergency medical care, force health protection, limited primary care, evacuation and warrior skills. Similar to Combat Medic Field Manual, this course recognizes the special needs of the combat medic.

However, this course will and must change over time, as we acquire new lessons and learn better ways of saving lives.
