The American Heart Association designed the Heartsaver courses to prepare people to provide CPR, first aid, or AED use in a safe, timely, and effective manner. Students must pass a skills test to receive a certification card. All course costs include instructor time for instruction and skills tests, certification card, and pre-course materials (i.e. student manual and pre-course letters). After successful completion of the course the student will receive a certification that is good for 2 years.
Heartsaver CPR - covers adult/child CPR and choking, adult/child ventilation, AED demo. Infant CPR and Choking is optional
Heartsaver AED - same as Heartsaver CPR with CPR and AED instruction and practice. AED training will be with the site specific AED if there is one on site. Infant training is optional.
