Instruction for the Public

CPRCPR Classes

Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a critical skill that can be learned by almost anyone and that can protect the lives of loved ones or friends. We offer two types of classes through the American Heart Association:

  • Heartsaver CPR AED Course with First-Aid - For the general public
  • Healthcare Providers - For healthcare professionals and those who are not medically licensed but required to have certification

Our manikins provide instant feedback to help students improve the quality of CPR compressions. Adult and child manikins come with a small screen displaying the key components of CPR, including compression rate and depth, chest recoil, and exchange of air. Class members track and improve their skills as instructors monitor their results to accurately assist them with technique. Infant manikins emit a click for tactile feedback. 

Stop the Bleed ManikinsStop the Bleed Class

Our new Stop the Bleed Class teaches how to stop traumatic bleeding with manikins and moulage that provide hands-on practice in how to stanch bleeding on limbs and torsos. Knowing how to stop bleeding can save lives in a number of situations -- from high-profile mass shootings and traffic crashes to household accidents and work injuries. Our classes support a national call-to-action by the Department of Homeland Security that encourages bystanders to be trained, equipped, and empowered to help in bleeding emergencies.
