Heartsaver First Aid is for anyone with limited or no medical training who wants to learn first aid. A course completion card is available to individuals who need one to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. This course is ideal for coaches, scouting leaders, workplace first responders, non-medical home health care workers, and others.
This course will provide students with training to perform basic first aid procedures. They will also be taught how to handle an emergency until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. Skills taught in this course are in compliance with OSHA recommendations.
This course is available in traditional or blended class formats.
