Nobody likes to be put on the spot, and it can be scary to realize you might not know everything you need to if your loved one, family member, friend or coworker has an accident or a medical emergency. The good news is you can learn the skills you need to make a meaningful difference and help people in trouble feel better until the First Responders arrive.

CPR Heart and EKGLearning First Aid & CPR means you’re prepared for whatever happens – from the bumps, bruises and scrapes that happen all the time, especially if you’re around kids or have an active lifestyle, to the most serious, life-threatening events, including sudden cardiac arrest. You don’t have to count on someone else knowing what to do – and when research tells us that half of the workforce doesn’t know where they’d located an AED or other lifesaving equipment at their job, having your own life-saving knowledge and skills is a very good thing!

It’s important to understand that when you invest your time and energy into CPR certification, you’re learning from a provider who meets ILCOR standards – they’re the ones the American Heart Association recognizes and employers require. The easiest, best way to learn CPR and First Aid involves an eLearning component – classes you can take on your phone at your own pace – combined with an in-person, hands-on training with an experienced instructor that helps you build your skills, knowledge and confidence.
