It encompasses hands-on interactive training in the proper execution of chest compressions, delivering effective ventilations, and proficient use of Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs).
Our training programs are rooted in the latest AHA scientific knowledge and educational standards, as outlined in the Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC.
What will you learn? The course covers high-quality CPR techniques for adults, children, and infants, the vital Chain of Survival, the significance of AED utilization, efficient employment of mouth barriers and bag-valve masks, and techniques for relieving obstructions in choking situations.
This course is open to individuals of all backgrounds, and we view it as an advanced level of CPR training.
Our full-class training provides every student with the opportunity for immersive, hands-on practice. Under the guidance of instructors, students engage in team-based scenarios and benefit from video presentations.
