THE 8-HOUR WORKSHOP CURRICULUM
Our standard 8-hour workshop is an introduction to protest first aid and aftercare. It will prepare the student to act as an affinity group-level medic. Although we will drill you intensively, there will be time for lunch and a few breaks built into the 8 hours. Students who already have advanced first aid training will want to take this course as we cover many things that are specific to protest health care. People with no first aid training will learn valuable first aid skills they can use anywhere, not just at protests. We will also talk to students about how they can continue their training. Expect to have a lot of fun.

You will learn:
Basic protest safety for you and your affinity group
Chemical weapons (pepper spray) decontamination
Herbal remedies and aftercare
ABCs (Scene survey, scene management, Airway, Breathing, Circulation, spinal cord precautions, triage)

Dress as if you were going to a protest. Sensible shoes and raingear required; we may get you wet. Sandals are a no-no.
Bring all the other gear you'd bring if you were going to a protest.
Bring a small, squirt-top water bottle that's still sealed.
Bring a lunch and snacks for yourself.
Bring your friends.

This class has a sliding scale: $0-$40.
