American Heart Association (AHA) Courses

If a cardiac arrest happened to your loved one or a close friend, would you know how to perform life-saving CPR, which can double a victim’s chance of survival?  Would you know what to do if an infant in your care suddenly began to choke or suffer cardiac arrest?  Surprisingly, the vast majority of Americans don't.  Almost 80 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and are witnessed by a family member.  Only 6.4 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims survive because the vast majority of those witnessing the arrest are people who do not know how to perform CPR.  CPR can make the difference between the life and death of a loved one.  It can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival.

American Heart Association CPR & First Aid Training is geared to prepare you to successfully handle life threatening situations in which every second is crucial.  Below is a course listing.  Click on a course title for more information.
