The BeWell committee, EMT and HPE area will continue to offer CPR AED and First Aid certification training in the future with a goal to have multiple trained employees at all campus locations.
Save Someone's Life - AHA Hands-on CPR and AED basic training. This course is offered in collaboration with the American Heart Association, EMT Program and MEDIC. Using life-size manikins, participants will learn hands-on adult CPR and how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) device. This course does not lead to CPR certification.
The Heartsaver CPR AED is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches CPR and AED use, as well as how to relieve choking on an adult. This course teaches skills with AHA's research - proven Practice-While-Watching (PWW) technique, which allows instructors to observe the participants, provide feedback and guide the participant's learning of skills. Allow 2 hours for this training. The course is not for those affiliated with Federal Work Study Program.
Participants need to:
- pick up a textbook PRIOR to class in Central Campus Library
- dress comfortably as you will practice with the manikins on the floor
If any medical conditions exist, discuss these with the instructor prior to signing up for this class. All participants must return the books following completion of the training.
