We are pleased to offer courses designed by national leaders in health and safety instruction, the American Heart Association and the American Safety and Health Institute. Scroll down for specific sections: CPR Classes, Training for Health Care Providers, First Aid, and Fees.
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 CPR technique is identical. ASHI is being switched to the name of its corporate parent, the Health and Safety Institute (HSI). Both names are on the current certification cards.
This section is for training on CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). 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. Certification is for two years. Healthcare provider organizations overwhelming prefer AHA certification cards. The training below includes all necessary test questions and skill checks. When you are online, Adaptive Learning Technology makes the pace right for you. The more you know, the faster you go. CAUTIONS FOR SPEED: The system will impose extra instruction if you answer a question incorrectly, too slowly, or if you admit that you are not confident in your answer.
This is for professionals who need Basic Life Support training (renewals only).
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.
Learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of injuries and sudden illnesses. Learn how to treat victims in the critical first minutes until emergency medical personnel arrive. Subjects include how to deal with bleeding, soft tissue injuries, muscle and bone injuries, facial injuries, shock, burns, allergic reaction, diabetic problems, seizures, poisoning, bites, stings, heat emergencies including heat exhaustion and heat stroke, and cold emergencies including hypothermia and frostbite.
Learn how to minimize or eliminate contact with human blood and other potentially infectious material. It meets the "Bloodborne Pathogens Standard" of OSHA, the Occupational and Safety Health Administration.
Clients needing Bloodborne Pathogens almost always want the course combined with First Aid.
Please call for a price quote. Fees are lower than most competitors. Because we come to you or conduct classes at a library, everyone saves the expense of classroom space. The fee per student is usually less than $100. It depends on the number of students, the type of course, how many courses are taken at once, and inflation. We cover all of Middle Tennesse for on-site training. Locations distant from the Nashville area have a reasonable travel fee.
