The AHA’s Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED courses train participants to provide first aid, CPR, and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. These courses teach you the basics for how to recognize a cardiac event, and first aid emergencies. You will learn how to call for help and perform lifesaving skills, including the use of an AED. The course reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).

Heartsaver courses are flexible according to your training needs.
