Medical Training Course Goes Online

 - March 25, 2008, 9:08 AM

MedAire is introducing a series of computer-based training classes designed to give flight crews a way to stay current on their medical training, including staying qualified in CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) use without attending formal classes. MedAire’s e-Learning courseware is part of Jeppesen’s new distance-learning system called FliteCrew DLS. Phoenix-based MedAire will initially offer recurrent training modules in AEDs, bloodborne pathogens and tools for medical resource management. The courseware features “animated tutorials that simulate common aviation-related medical emergencies with 3-D tools that give the user an interactive lesson in providing care.” To learn more about Jeppesen’s FlightCrew DLS, contact Jack Hezlep at (303) 328-4208 or jack.hezlep@jeppesen.com.
