Fees range from

$50.00 to $85.00  based upon location and number of students

                 

Heartsaver (Lay Responder) Courses

NOTE: These courses are designed for those who are NOT in the health care field.

  • Heartsaver First Aid CPR & AED

  • Heartsaver CPR & AED

  • Heartsaver First Aid

  • Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR & AED

  • Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens

Heartsaver or lay responder courses will teach you almost everything that the BLS course will teach you. However, you will not learn about the more advanced techniques and barrier devices that health care providers may use. This course is often accompanied with a first aid certification that is required for some jobs. The term "Heartsaver" is used by the American Heart Association, "lay-responder" is the term the American Red Cross utilizes. Though the name is slightly different, the science and skills of the course are largely the same.

The Heartsaver Course will also teach you basic care for emergencies like breathing difficulties, heart emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical responders arrive. You will learn how to properly use an AED as well while administering CPR. There is NO written test required to pass a Heartsaver course but the skills presented in class must be demonstrated properly to obtain a certification card. Emphasis is placed on responding outside of a healthcare system and how to recognize, respond and treat victims usually without additional help. 

Basic Life Support (BLS) Courses

 

NOTE: This course is designed for current or aspiring HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS.

 

In this class you will learn;

  • Both one and two person CPR/AED skills for adults, children and infants while using various breathing barrier devices.

  • How to clear the airway of a conscious and unconscious adult, child or infant.

  • How to use an automated external defibrillator (AED)

  • The signs and symptoms for respiratory and cardiac arrest as well as strokes and other health issues is another key focus for BLS courses.

  • How to recognize and respond to life-threatening emergencies using advanced interventions and the proper equipment.

 

This course is taught under the assumption that you may eventually be called upon to use these skills in an emergency situation. Emphasis on working together in a team environment is stressed in the Basic Life Support class while also understanding the skills needed to respond alone, until further help arrives. In general, a BLS course is for healthcare providers, but anyone is welcome to register for and complete the class. There are no pre-requisites, however this course does not certify individuals in basic first aid. The class must be retaken every two years in order to maintain certification. To pass the class, you must successfully demonstrate the skills you have learned to the instructor and pass a multiple choice exam.
