Who Should Take the Course?
Heartsaver courses are intended for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (e.g. OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.
Heartsaver can be delivered in two (2) formats to meet the needs of students and offer flexibility for instructors. All formats include the same learning objectives and result in the same course completion card.
Instructor Led Training
Instructors deliver both the cognitive portion of training and the psychomotor component or thorough skills practice and testing in a classroom setting. Classroom courses may be conducted onsite at the company's location if you prefer.
Heartsaver blended learning courses include an online portion and a hands-on portion can be completed at work, home, or wherever you have internet access. The hands-on skills practice and testing session is conducted in person with an AHA BLS or Heartsaver Instructor.
