Description

Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrives. Skills covered in this course include first aid; choking relief in adults, children, and infants; and what to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults, children, and infants.

This course teaches skills with the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback, and guide the students’ learning of skills.

Cost of the course is as follows, and will be collected on the day of the training: For an employee of The Children's Workshop or for a parent/guardian of a child who currently attends The Children's Workshop, the cost of certification is $45. For all others, the cost is $80. Certification cost can be paid by money order or check made out to The Children's Workshop on the day of the training. Employees of The Children's Workshop can also choose to pay for the certification via a payroll deduction, in one or two installments.
