This American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid Course 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 for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in first aid to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. If you are a healthcare provider, you will want to sign up for the BLS for Healthcare Providers course instead.
First aid basics (including scene safety, finding the problem, calling for help and more) Medical emergencies (including actions for choking, breathing problems, shock and more) Injury emergencies (including actions for bleeding, broken bones, burns and more) Environmental emergencies (including actions for bites and stings, and temperature-related and poison emergencies).
This class covers only the First Aid portion of the course, for students who already have or do not need CPR AED as well. If you need both, please enroll in the Heartsaver CPR AED and First Aid course, above.
The American Heart Association requires that all students have the course manual for class. The manual can be purchased from:
