American Heart Association
Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED Course
The latest science says quick action, quality training, use of mobile technology, and coordinated efforts can increase survival from cardiac arrest, a leading cause of death in the United States. The 2015 Guidelines recommend training to develop better systems of care, especially in the event of a cardiac arrest. Everyone should know what to do at every step of a cardiovascular emergency. Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.
AHA’s Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED course provides the knowledge and skills that may help save a life. It also offers the basics of first aid for the most common life-threatening emergencies, covering how to recognize them, how to call for help, and how to perform lifesaving skills.
Heartsaver courses from AHA offer:
- A cohesive, consistent experience for the learner
