CPR & AED Training with First Aid

The American Heart Association’s Heartsaver First Aid with CPR & AED course is designed for members of the community who may be called upon to provide care or assistance to community members, but do not work in the occupational field of healthcare. The course is designed to teach the participant to recognize common medical emergencies, life-threatening emergencies, access the 911 system, and provide critical, life-saving interventions as well as basic first aid to a victim in need, prior to the arrival of an ambulance.

Common participants of this course include boy & girl scouts, babysitters, lifeguards, health and fitness staff, teachers & school administrators, or employees designated as first responders who need credentialed training for job or regulatory requirements. If you are taking a course as required for your job, please check with your employer as some workplaces require a specific course from the American Heart Association. This course is NOT a healthcare provider certification course.

  • Recognizing Medical Emergencies including breathing problems, heart attack, allergic reactions, fainting, diabetes and low blood sugar, stroke, seizures, heat-and cold-related emergencies, and shock.
