CPR First Aid Program
Two courses are offered through the Continuing Education CPR First Aid program: the American Hearth Association HeartCode BLS (CPR) and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons First Aid. The HeartCode BLS course is intended for healthcare providers and covers CPR skills, use of an automated external defibrillator and relief of foreign body airway obstruction. The First Aid course is for anyone interested or required to take first aid.
Both courses are open to the public.
CONDITIONS OF ENROLLMENT AND COURSE CREDIT (PRIOR TO THE CLASS)
Each student must successfully complete “HeartCode® BLS AHA Product Number15-1400” training for CPR certification. This training is found on the American Heart Association webpage. The cost is $28.50 and the online textbook is also included with this program.
More specifically, follow these steps to get to the correct class:
- Go to https://shopcpr.heart.org/heartcode-bls
- Click on “Add to Cart”
- Follow instructions for registration
NOTE: The exact steps for enrolling in this class are subject to change at the discretion of the American Heart Association and are not in our control. Please make sure you start this process early in the event the process is different from the steps provided above.
After successfully completing this course, you must print your certificate and bring it with you to class on Friday. Make sure you are taking the correct course because there are several different options available on the website. The failure to complete the correct course will result in you not meeting the requirements for the course and no CPR certification will be earned. Do not wait until the last minute to complete this because it does take several hours to complete. Certificates must be dated within two weeks prior to your class.
The CPR Textbook is included with your HeartCode BLS online portion of the class.
FIRST AID TEXTBOOK
The first aid book is required for the class and costs approximately $30. Information and direction on the purchase of the eBook will be discussed the first afternoon of the class (Friday). Please bring a laptop computer and credit/debit card on Friday and we will guide everyone in the process of purchasing the book.
