Students are trained to blood pressure readings on adults, as well as knowledge of what the numbers mean and the ability to explain them to individuals.

They are taught to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.

To promote sanitation, individual mouth/nose pieces are provided to each student.
