Heartsaver First Aid Course Objectives:
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 by 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.
In this course, participants learn how to:
- Recognize and handle medical emergencies
- Manage illness and injury until professional help arrives
- Relieve choking in adults, children, and infants
- Handle environmental emergencies
*This course does not satisfy requirements for anyone needing CPR/AED certification, though our Basic Life Support course does fulfill this requirement. Learn more about our Basic Life Support course.
Heartsaver First Aid Course Length:
Three hours, which includes DVD and hands-on instruction, as well as written and skills tests.
Employees and students required to have a first aid certification. We also encourage members of the general public to take this course to learn first aid basics.
