CPR/First Aid/AED (Adult or Pediatric)
You will learn from a qualified CPR instructor and will be provided with a course manual. During the course students will have dummies to practice the application of CPR. This allows students to experience a “real” experience of how to deal with a victim requiring CPR. The first thing that will be taught in CPR certification classes is to remember that your role in saving a victim’s life is to keep them alive until the medical response team arrives.
During the CPR course, students will be assessed on their competency and skill level and those that show that they have learned the ability to apply the necessary skills, will receive their certification after their final written and practical exams. Classes often take 4 hours if you go with the classroom courses or quite a bit shorter if you do an online e-learning based certification.
Basic Life Support (BLS)
This course is for healthcare professionals who need to know how to perform CPR, as well as other lifesaving skills, in a wide variety of in-hospital and out-of-hospital settings. This is the most common kind of BLS Healthcare Provider CPR certification needed by Healthcare Workers. Required for working in the healthcare industry such as a hospital, clinic, nursing home, assisted living facility or any healthcare setting.
Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
AHA ACLS Course has been updated to reflect new science found in the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. This course builds on the foundation of lifesaving BLS skills, emphasizing the importance of continuous, high-quality CPR.
This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
* Students are required to take the pre-assessment for ACLS.
Pediatric Advanced Cardiac Life Support (PALS)
The AHA’s PALS Course has been updated to reflect new science in the 2015 AHA Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. This classroom, Instructor-led course uses a series of videos and simulated pediatric emergencies to reinforce the important concepts of a systematic approach to pediatric assessment, basic life support, PALS treatment algorithms, effective resuscitation, and team dynamics. The goal of the PALS Course is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured children, resulting in improved outcomes.
* Students are required to take the pre-assessment for PALS.
Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS)
The Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization (PEARS) certification course was designed for healthcare providers that infrequently see critically ill children. PEARS prepares a student to assess, categorize, decide and act early to stabilize the child.
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens
