Heartsaver First Aid

The Heartsaver First Aid course provides training in basic first-aid procedures (including the first-aid skills recommended by OSHA) in a format that can be delivered in a single day. It also offers elective modules in CPR, AED, and environmental emergencies. Its highly effective video-based-instruction format enables students to experience case-based scenarios in a realistic setting. Instructors introduce a topic, and then show a video segment to present cases for discussion or demonstrate a particular skill. Students then practice the skill in small groups. The Heartsaver First Aid course can be tailored to address the needs of a specific workplace or group of employees. It is specially designed to train anyone who might be the first to respond in the workplace or community.
