    The Heartsaver® CPR AED course is designed to prepare students to provide CPR and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. Heartsaver courses are intended for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (e.g., OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.

    After successfully completing this course, students should be able to:

    • describe how high-quality CPR improves survival
    • explain the concepts of the Chain of Survival
    • recognize when someone needs CPR
    • perform high-quality CPR for an adult, child, and infant alone or as a team member during multi-rescuer CPR 
    • give effective breaths using mouth-to-mouth or a barrier device for all age groups
    • demonstrate how to use an AED on an adult, child, and infant.
    • describe when and how to help a choking adult, child, or infant.

    Upon successful completion of the course, including a CPR and AED skills test, students receive a Heartsaver CPR AED course completion card that is valid for two years.

    The intended audience for this course is the non-healthcare worker.

    This course costs $50 per person. A minimum of 5 people are needed for the course. If the minimum isn't met, we'll contact all who have signed up and reschedule the course.
