CPR Certification and Training for Churches
- Any staff member of a facility or a business providing direct care to children MUST become certified in First Aid and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) within the first 90 days of employment. This includes churches, schools, and child watch programs. Recertification must occur ever 2 years for CPR / AED.
- Members of the religious community may be of advanced age or in poor health, and thereby more likely to experience a cardiac event or medical emergency.
- Emergency services takes approximately 8-10 minutes to reach most emergencies. Waiting that long to intervene in a cardiac or medical emergency means that the patient has a poor chance of survival.
- Places of worship have become attractive targets for Active Killers. In the event of a critical incident (shooting, explosive device, fire, etc.) it is important to begin treating casualties as quickly as possible to prevent further loss of life.
Heartsaver First Aid, CPR, AED
Infant and Juvenile CPR techniques are all taught in these classes.
The Heartsaver First Aid / CPR / AED class trains the students to aid their family or their community safely and quickly. This course was created for students with little or no prior medical training. Students will learn how to identify and treat medical and injury emergencies, how to contact emergency services, and how to preserve life until help arrives. This course also trains the student to properly provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to properly use an automated external defibrillator (AED).
Stop The Bleed
A STOP THE BLEED® course is a blend of lecture (online available) and in-person skills assessments, developed for anyone interested in learning to save lives through stopping the loss of blood. Created and continually refined by The American College of Surgeons, the Stop the Bleed campaign has instructed over one million law enforcement officers, teachers, students, and community members in these life-saving skills.
STOP THE BLEED® courses provide students with three methods to save a life before someone expires from blood loss. Using direct pressure, tourniquets, and packing a wound with gauze, YOU can be the difference in an emergency. Our instructors have personally used these techniques multiple times in their professional and civilian lives to prevent death. Their students have used these skills as well, on the scenes of shootings, automobile accidents, building sites, and in the woods.
Much of the Stop The Bleed ® course can be taken online. There is an in-personal skills assessment that can be performed at the end of most Georgia CPR Certification classes for a minimal cost that covers material and equipment. You can register for the Stop the Bleed skills assessment during your course registration process.

The Instructor-Led Heartsaver courses are entirely taught in the classroom setting, with an instructor guiding the lesson through lecture, discussion, and practical evaluations / skills testing.

Some individuals are required by law or licensing requirements to be certified in CPR. Those include doctors, dentists, nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, day care staff, foster parents, and others.
However, it is very likely that CPR will be used in the home in an attempt to save the life of a family member or loved one. In that case, we believe that EVERYONE should know this simple and proven skill for increasing the chances of surviving a cardiac event.
