The most important goal of the AHA certified CPR AED course is to teach an individual how to provide CPR in an emergency and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Recognition of Cardiac Arrest is the most important step in early management to give the victim the best chance of survival.
The AHA’s CPR AED course prepares individuals to recognize and respond to emergency situations, give high-quality chest compressions (CPR), deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED promptly until the patient can be given complete medical care at a hospital.
Anyone who wishes to learn how to provide CPR and use an AED to give victims in an emergency situation the best chance of survival should take this course.
Medical emergencies may strike at any moment in our surroundings. Whether it is our family or society, it is our duty to help fellow individuals and provide appropriate care until trained medical help arrives on the scene.
This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in CPR and AED use to meet job, regulatory or other requirements, or to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, e.g., corporate employees, security guards, airline personnel, lifeguards, etc.
The AHA CPR AED course is delivered by highly experienced emergency physicians, intensivists and doctors who are certified instructors of the American Heart Association.
They deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor component of thorough skills practice and testing in a classroom setting using simulated situations and state of the art equipment.
