American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid Course

Heartsaver First Aid Course

The goal of the Heartsaver first aid course is to prepare participants to handle the most common life-threatening emergencies. Participants will learn the basics of recognizing emergencies, knowing when to call for help, and performing both basic and lifesaving skills. As a result, participants who complete this course will be certified by the American Heart Association® (AHA®) as a First Aid Provider. An American Heart Association certification eCard is also provided upon completion.
