Cardio Pulminary Resuscitation
Reasons Everyone Should Know CPR & First Aid
We can take care of most minor injuries ourselves through methods like First Aid and CPR. While many people do not believe they have the time to learn, or don’t want to, they may not realize that every day we are at risk of being involved in an incident or accident at while work, enjoying water activities, or just out with our families. These are important reasons to learn First Aid or CPR.
WHAT TYPE OF TRAINING DO YOU NEED?
Basic Life Support (BLS)
The BLS Instructor-led course teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both prehospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on High-Quality CPR and team dynamics. If you are a healthcare professional or a heath sciences student, this is the course that you will most likely need.
Heartsaver courses are designed for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (for example, OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting. Gulf Coast State College offers the American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid/CPR/AED and the CPR-AED Course.
