The purpose of this course is to help participants identify and eliminate potentially hazardous conditions in their environment, recognize emergencies and make appropriate decisions for first aid care. It teaches skills that participants need to know in order to provide immediate care for a suddenly ill or injured person until more advanced medical care arrives to take over. In addition, this hands-on skills training prepares you to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies, while teaching the skills and knowledge needed to provide care for victims of sudden cardiac arrest through the safe use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). Students who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate for Adult CPR/AED, which is valid for two years.

Consider these facts: 
• 25% of all emergency room visits can be avoided with basic first aid and CPR certification
• Sudden cardiac arrest represents 13% of all workplace deaths
• Nearly 5 million workers were injured on the job in 2012, costing companies $198.2 billion
• 75% of all out-of-hospital heart attacks happen at home
