Contact to learn more.

Each class is available for anyone ages 16 or older. Those under 18 will need permission from parent/guardian. No prior medical training is necessary. Your course completion card in first aid and/or CPR/AED can assist you in meeting job, regulatory or other requirements and possibly save a life.

Each classroom, is developed with a hybrid video-based and hands-on format where an instructor teaches students the critical skills needed to respond to and manage injuries, sudden cardiac arrest, choking, heart attacks and other emergencies in the first crucial minutes until EMS arrives. Each classroom focuses on adults, children and infants.

Each successful student will receive First Aid, CPR/AED Student Workbook with Guide, hands on training and certificate.

Our trainings can accommodate 10-20 participants. In most cases, the CPR/AED & First Aid training lasts about seven (7) hours. (CPR/AED is about three (3) hours and the First Aid about four (4) hours.) All are available in English and Spanish.
