Training Resources

While there are different types of training courses, one level is not “better” or “higher” than another. Rather, each has a target audience with specific goals and objectives requiring varying degrees of skills and knowledge.


BLS       Basic Life Support  courses include a Heartsaver course designed for people of all ages who want to learn the basic skills of CPR and how to use an AED,  as well as a Basic Life Support for Healthcare provider course, designed for those who, as part of their jobs as professional or volunteer first-responders, have a duty to attend medical emergencies in a pre-hospital or in-hospital environment, and are expected to have the skills to recognize a number of life-threatening emergencies work alone or in a team setting to provide CPR, how to use an AED and how to relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
