The American Heart Association's (AHA) Heartsaver® courses are intended for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (e.g., OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.
Some examples of who may need this type of training:
- Day Care Providers
- Security Personnel
- Home Care Givers
- Personal Trainers
- New Parents/Grandparents
The cost for TMCC's Heartsaver CPR and First Aid course is $65, including the student manual.
This is an instructor-led 5 hour one day course. The first 2.5 hours of the class covers CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) use for adults, children (ages 1-8) and infants. The second half covers basic first aid skills.
The workshop teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrive.
Skills covered in this course include:
- First aid
- Choking relief in adults, children, and infants
- What to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults, children and infants
- Use of an AED in a safe, timely and effective manner
Note: If you need to obtain CPR certification as a prerequisite for EMT, Nursing, CNA, etc. please register for the Basic Life Support (BLS) CPR workshop.
Workshops can be conducted at your place of business or at TMCC, by request. Offsite trainings or group trainings must have a minimum of 6 participants. Offsite class pricing may vary, depending on class size and location.
