AHA Heartsaver CPR AED training is a four-hour, instructor-led class that teaches adult CPR and AED use, as well as how to relieve choking in adults. Instruction is based on the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe students, provide feedback and guide student learning.
Such programs have been shown to dramatically improve the survivability of heart attack victims. The current course incorporates several key changes reflecting new science from the 2010 AHA Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, adult CPR and AED use, as well as optional modules in child CPR and AED use and infant CPR, including child and infant choking.
Every student will have hands-on skills practice with a mannequin. Upon completion, students receive an AHA Heartsaver CPR AED course completion card that is valid for two years.
