In-Person & Hybrid

Overview and Options

The Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED course incorporates the latest science and teaches students to recognize and care for a variety of emergencies and how to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies to help victims of any age – adults (about 12 years and older) and pediatric (infants and children up to 12 years of age). Upon successful completion of all course components, students will receive a certificate for Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED, valid for two years.

The purpose of the CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer course is to train professional-level rescuers to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies in adults, children, and infants until more advanced medical personnel take over. This course delivers information and protocols designed specifically for lifeguards, EMS personnel, police, security staff, firefighters, athletic trainers, and others. Upon successful completion of all course components, students will receive a certificate for CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer, valid for two years.
