Who should be Seizure First Aid Certified?

While everyone should know basic seizure first aid, becoming Seizure First Aid Certified takes you further. You will learn how to recognize signs of a seizure and how to use the basic first aid steps in different settings, for different seizure types and when medical help may be needed.

Seizure First Aid Certification is designed for people who:

  • Have a family member, loved one, or friend with seizures.
  • Have a job where you provide care for people with seizures.
  • Have a job where you work with the public or work with someone who has seizures.
  • Coach or lead groups.
  • Work, play, or live in areas or settings where seizures could occur.

The Seizure First Aid Ready course will teach you 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. 

The Seizure Training for School Nurses: Caring for Students course teaches seizure first aid with a focus on creating a safer environment for children living with seizure disorders. CNE Credits and Certification of Completion available for participants.
