American Heart Association BLS CPR and AED

Because an Emergency Can Occur ANYTIME...
The American Heart Association’s CPR and AED learning programs helps increase survival rates by training people just like you to respond quickly. The sad truth is most people don’t survive a cardiac arrest. Four to six minutes is the window of opportunity for someone to act before it’s too late, but fewer than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from someone nearby. This course teaches hands-on lifesaving skills. Upon completion of this 3 hour class you will receive the American Heart Association Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers (CPR and AED) certification.
