We are pleased to offer courses designed by national leaders in health and safety instruction.
Training for health care providers is offered only as AHA training. The other courses have both AHA and ASHI versions.
ASHI courses are simpler than AHA courses, and are often the best choice for "just the basics." The core content and the CPR technique are identical to AHA.
Classroom time varies according to skill level and number of of students. Renewal versions are often shorter. The certification is good for two years .
This is our most popular class. It combines CPR and first aid training. See details in the CPR and First Aid descriptions.
Adult CPR teaches lay rescuers how to recognize and treat life-threatening emergencies, including cardiac arrest and choking. After a sudden cardiac arrest, CPR allows a bystander to restore some oxygen to the brain through a combination of chest compressions and rescue breaths. This course teaches how to do CPR, including practice on a manikin.
This course also teaches how to use the automated external defibrillator. The AED is computerized medical device to rescue victims of cardiac arrest.
This is similar to Adult CPR but instructions are adjusted to cover infants and children.
This begins with Adult CPR then continues with Infant/Child CPR.
This is AHA training. A written/skills examination is required for course completion, and the course completion card is the appropriate certification for many training programs. Certification is for two years.
It is designed to teach the skills of CPR for victims of all ages, including ventilation with a barrier device, a bag-mask device, and oxygen. It also covers use of an automated external defibrillator and relief of foreign-body airway obstruction. It is intended for participants who provide care to patients.
This AHA renewal is designed for those who have current certification in Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers.
Some rescuers take first aid as part of their employer's efforts to comply with regulations from the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). Certfication is for two years except Bloodborne Pathogens, which is one year.
