The CFR Advanced Course taught by the Irish Heart Foundation includes the BLS Provider Course plus the CFR Community Course segment and the CFR Advanced Course segment and takes a day to complete. The three parts of the course must be completed in order to gain CFR Advanced certification.
The advanced segment of the course covers oxygen delivery, airway adjuncts, insertion of SGA’s, suctioning and the team concepts of resuscitation. Therefore the CFR Advanced Course is appropriate for those responders who will be using these advanced skills on a regular basis and who work as part of a team.
If you are able to successfully complete both the skills and written exam assessment components of the course you will receive both an IHF/AHA BLS Provider and IHF/PHECC CFR Advanced course completion cards that are both valid for 2 years.
