The Seizure First Aid Ready course educates the public on the Epilepsy Foundation’s basic procedures for responding to someone having a seizure.

This course aims to increase knowledge in applying seizure first aid. This information is presented in an interactive eLearning format with animations, videos, and activities to help learners become seizure first aid ready. 

This course was designed for direct training of the public. Participants who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of completion.


Interested in becoming Seizure First Aid Certified? 

Please enroll in the  Seizure Recognition and First Aid Certification course if seeking a two-year certification in Seizure First Aid. Note: The Seizure First Aid  Ready course is shorter in length than the two-year Seizure Recognition and First Aid Certification course and does not go into the same level of detail.  

 

Participants will be able to meet the following learning objectives:
Recognize common seizures
Identify correct and incorrect steps for helping a person having a seizure
Identify when it would be necessary to call emergency personnel (911) in the event of a seizure
