CPR Certification and Training for Private Groups and Clubs
Most people who haven't yet experienced a medical emergency or critical incident don't realize how long it takes for help to arrive. For example, in most metropolitan areas, it generally takes takes 8-15 minutes for emergency medical services to arrive once you have dialed 911. You cannot afford to wait that long to render aid to a loved one or a member of your community.
Whether someone is injured as the result of an motor vehicle accident, an Active Killer event, or an unforseen hazard, there isn't much time to act. Blood loss, choking, respiratory distress, and a host of other medical conditions will be fatal in the time it takes for a professional responder to arrive. To bridge that gap, YOU will need to step in and preserve life.
We can tailor a training experience directly to your club, organization, business, or entity. Let us provide you with quality training that will provide entertainment and life-saving skills that you can use to make the world safer for the people around you.
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.
What training options do you offer for my group?
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.
The CPR / AED class takes approximately 3-4 hours. The First Aid course takes approximately 2 hours to complete. The courses can be taken separately, or combined into the same class day.
Training can be conducted at your facility or at our dedicated location in Athens, Georgia.
