Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED Online Part 1 (fee: $85 part 1, 2, 3.)
What is it?
According to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 3.3 million injuries and illnesses occur annually in the workplace. Also, approximately 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital. That’s why it’s important to include first aid, CPR and AED training as part of your safety program.
Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Online Part 1 is an online, self-directed program. The program teaches students critical skills and knowledge needed to respond to and manage a first aid or sudden cardiac arrest emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) takes over. Completion of the full course includes Part 1 online, plus a skills practice and testing session (Parts 2 and 3) with an AHA Instructor. Upon successful completion of all three parts, students receive an AHA course completion card, valid for two years.
This program can be completed at work, at home or wherever Internet access is available. It can be used for initial or renewal training. Students also have access to all information in the online program for 24 months after activation of their course key.
