This class is required for EMS, lifeguards, physical therapists, nurses, and doctors, and is the most in-depth CPR class offered. This class includes the AHA course manual and a 2-year certification card. The use of a Bag Mask, advanced airway techniques, and concentration on 2 and multi rescuer CPR are some of the additional features of this class.
It also features comprehensive hands-on practice sessions with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), for adult, child, and infant CPR and choking issues.
Each student works on their own manikin to maximize hands-on time. AHA e-learning options are also available for any BLS student.
Basic Life Support CPR, Heartsaver CPR AED, and the combined Heartsaver CPR AED along with First Aid courses are now available as e-learning courses from the American Heart Association. Beware of bogus sites that pretend to supply you with online certifications. These will not be accepted in places that require original certification.
The AHA blended e-learning differs from others; you are actually taking the course via the AHA website, and then coming to our location to practice and test your practical skills. As an AHA training instructor, we provide you with the key code access to this website where you learn all the cognitive elements of your CPR course in your own time frame. That is part 1 of the process. The key code to access the AHA site will be emailed to you upon your registration for the course.
Parts 2 and 3 are approximately a 2.5 hour session with us where you practice on a manikin (part 2) and then test out (part 3). The e-learning process requires you to come in prepared for parts 2 and 3 to take the skills test in the allotted time. You will be issued your certification upon completion of the skills session.
This course is designed to prepare the instructor candidate to teach all AHA BLS courses from family and friends CPR through BLS.
Upon completion of the AHA instructor course, the instructor candidate must be observed teaching a class by faculty from the training center with which they’ll eventually affiliate. It is important to know with which training center you’ll affiliate prior to the course.
Upon completion, all candidates must affiliate with an AHA training center and follow all AHA instructor protocols.
This class is for those who want to know about CPR, choking, and the AED. This class is great for those outside of the medical profession, or those in the medical profession that don’t require the BLS provider level class. Police, fire, teachers, personal trainers, home-care aids, and the general public are well served with the Heartsaver AED class.
This course is of great help to a layperson or a healthcare provider. It is highly recommended for any Heartsaver CPR AED or BLS student to add this course to their regimen.
Upon completion, you’ll receive your first aid certification which is good for two years.
The combined Heartsaver CPR AED / first aid course is a combination of the elements of individual Heartsaver CPR AED and basic first aid classes. Upon completion, you’ll be certified for two years in First Aid and CPR AED.
This course covers adult, child, and infant CPR, along with how to handle choking situations for adults, children, and infants. AEDs will be discussed, but not practiced, as they’re in the Heartsaver AED certified courses. This class will completely enable you to have full understanding and capability to conduct CPR for adult, children, and infants, as well as how to handle choking incidents. This course is great for those that just want a basic CPR class that does not include the hands on use of a defibrillator or for those who do not have a requirement to be certified. Young teens involved with babysitting are well-suited for this class.
