CPR/AED for Non-Professional Rescuers

These courses are intended for people wanting to be prepared in the case of an emergency, but do not work in the medical field.

We offer two programs. Heartsaver CPR/AED is a comprehensive three to five hour course that provides AHA Certification on completion. Family & Friends CPR is an accelerated two-hour program.

The Heartsaver CPR/AED course is the full CPR/AED certification program; Adult, Child and Infant CPR, AED, choking, and barrier device use. This certification is often required for babysitters, personal trainers, lifeguards, and security personnel. It is also the recommended level of training for most individuals wishing to learn CPR. The course provides extensive hands-on training resulting in excellent skills. AHA Certification provided on sucessful completion.

For those that do not require a certification card or the full program, the Family & Friends program offers a two-hour course to learn the basics of CPR. This course is ideal for schools and students, new parents, grandparents, and others interested in learning how to save a life. The course includes both “standard” CPR (with breaths) as well as “Hands-Only” CPR, recognition of an individual suffering from a heart attack as well as an introduction to Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). Course fee is $75 for two participants or $200 for a class of six. These courses are both scheduled regularly as well as offered on your schedule. Contact our office to set up a course just for you!

We provide these courses in our training center, or on-site at your home, place of business, school, fitness center, etc.

Our courses are designed to be flexible to fit organizational needs. All courses include Adult CPR and AED use, but Child CPR, Infant CPR, First Aid, and Bloodborne Pathogens are optional components; we will tailor a course to your needs. Heartsaver classes range from three to six hours depending on options selected. We provide on-site instruction for groups of 6 or more with no travel fee!

Are you concerned that “one quick class” might not make you comfortable performing CPR in an emergency? We are the only training center to offer a guarantee! Take our course and, if you do not feel comfortable, come back within the first three months to repeat the course free!
