CPR First Aid Training

CPR First Aid Program

Two courses are offered through the Continuing Education CPR First Aid program:

  1. The American Hearth Association HeartCode BLS (CPR)
  2. 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.
