Heart Saver - CPR and AED Training and Certification

Heart Saver - CPR / AED Training

Certification from the American Heart Association

The American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR / AED course was developed for people with minimal or no training. This course is often taken to satisfy employment or regulatory requirements specific to positions requiring CPR certification and/or CPR cards. Additionally, this course is perfect for anyone who wants to be able to help their family and community in the event of a cardiac emergency.

The Heartsaver CPR / AED course provides training in the proper technique for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with and without the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The course is regularly updated with the most current research and science from the American Heart Association.

If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love.

When It Counts the Most

Each year, more than 350,000 EMS-assessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby. According to the American Heart Association, about 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

Be the Difference

The importance is on the willingness of bystanders to act in a cardiac arrest emergency. Did you know about 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes? If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love. Be the difference for your parent, spouse, child, family-member, friend or co-worker. What if it were you?
