Heartsaver® First Aid is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives.
This course is appropriate for anyone who is required by their workplace to perform first aid as part of a workplace emergency response team, as well as for general knowledge for the bystander. If you are, or will be, working directly with patients as your primary job responsibility (such as: hosptial, nursing facility, hospice, EMS or fire agencies, or similar jobs), do not take this course. Instead, take BLS for Healthcare Providers.
This course is the companion class to Heartsaver® CPR AED, and it is recommended these both be taken together.
