CPR/ AED First Aid Classes


CPR, especially when performed in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, can double or even triple a person's chances for survival. Learn proper life-saving techniques and how to respond in an emergency situation.

Our American Heart Association course will prepare you to recognize and care for a variety of first aid, breathing, and cardiac emergencies involving adults, children, and infants. This is a blending learning course meaning that parts will be an online, interactive learning experience, followed by an instructor-led classroom skill session.   

Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive an American Heart Association CPR/AED First Aid certification that is valid for two years.
