CPR Training

We offer Blended Training CPR courses. We have found that students who complete the online course with eSimulation followed by a hands-on skills session have a much greater understanding and retention of the information and skills needed to successfully perform quality CPR. This combination of learning methods is more adaptable to different learning styles. It also allows us to offer hands-on sessions to smaller groups or even individual sessions, in order to work with challenging schedules. You can complete the online course at your convenience, and the hands-on session is much shorter than a full in-person course.

We offer on-site trainings for groups of 4 or more. Discounts are available for groups; contact us for more information.

If you need a different course (Heartsaver adult only, pediatric only, etc), please contact us.

In order to comply with the current AHA COVID-19 guidelines, we are only offering private CPR Training skills sessions at this time.

We are now teaching the updated 2020 American Heart Association Guidelines.

Infant CPR

In this workshop we will learn how to give CPR to an infant (up to 1 year of age). You will get the peace of mind of knowing that you are prepared to help your precious little one if needed. We will talk about the common reasons that an infant might need CPR, different compression techniques, how to safely give breaths, and what order you want to do things. We will spend time practicing our skills, and asking questions is encouraged.

This is not a certification course.

Infant Safety & First Aid

Be prepared to keep your baby as safe as possible and to give them the care they need in an emergency. In this workshop we will learn about the most common injuries for infants (up to 1 year of age) and how to prevent and treat them. This will include choking, managing bleeding, broken bones, burns, allergic reactions, breathing problems, poison emergencies, and heat-related emergencies.

We will also talk about safe sleep for infants and ways to reduce the risk of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death, including SIDS.
