Bay College Training & Development will be offering First Aid, CPR-AED (Heartsaver) training on Wednesday, June 30th, from 9 am – 4 pm. Heartsaver courses are designed for anyone with little or no medical training who need a CPR completion card for their job or other regulatory requirement. Heartsaver can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.
Sudden cardiac arrest claims the lives of thousands of people every year. In the United States alone over 300,000 people require First Aid assistance and CPR because they are suffering a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, most people experiencing a cardiac arrest do not receive the emergency aid required to save their life. With the survivor rate of less than 10% when it comes to out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, people are encouraged to get certified in both First Aid and CPR.
The Heartsaver course trains participants to provide first aid, CPR, and use an AED in a safe, timely, and effective manner. This course includes certification in adult, children and infant CPR-AED. In order to successfully pass the CPR-AED course, you will be required to practice and demonstrate CPR skills on both adult and infant manikins.
The cost of the training is $85, and includes a mask and the required manual. Bay College follows the current public health, state and CDC guidance which include facemasks and social distancing. Participants are required to complete a health screening prior to entering campus. To register or view all course offerings, visit https://mytraining.baycollege.edu.
