The Heartsaver First Aid with CPR and AED Course is intended primarily for those who are expected to provide CPR and first aid in their workplace. The Course targets all lay responders, such as firefighters, police, commercial airline crews, security personnel, employees in the workplace, family members of patients at high risk for sudden death, and other laypersons wanting to learn first aid for adults.
The Course provides hands-on practice in the skills of first aid for adults in the workplace, including medical emergencies, injuries, environmental emergencies, CPR and choking for adults, children and infants, and the use of Automated External Defibrillators. A 126-page Heartsaver First Aid with CPR and AED Student Workbook is provided to each participant for
review before, during and after the Course. Two credit card-size Reminder Cards are included with the Workbook, displaying the simple steps for adult, child and infant CPR and AED use.
A First Aid Quick Reference Guide is also included in the Workbook, covering checking the victim, choking, bad allergic reactions, heart attack, stroke, seizures, shock and bleeding.
The course is CPD accredited by the HPCSA for 7CEUs.
