AHA Heartsaver CPR-AED Course

Take the Next Step in Learning the Skills of CPR and Using an AED

Anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Sadly, 70 percent of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they have never been trained to administer CPR.

The Heartsaver First Aid course teaches students the critical skills needed to respond to and manage a first aid, choking, or sudden cardiac arrest emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrive.

When someone is injured at work or home, being trained in first aid techniques, CPR and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) will allow you to help until more advanced care arrives. Knowing what to do in an emergency will give you the confidence to assist someone in need.

Learn how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock, heat-related emergencies, and other first-aid emergencies. Applying CPR techniques and using an AED can help you save someone unresponsive and not breathing due to many medical causes.

Dress comfortably and in layers. This is a hands-on course. A participant textbook is provided at the time of the training.
