CPR, First Aid, and AED

What is the CPR, First Aid, and AED course like?

This class is very similar to our CPR and First aid course but the main addition is the hands-on experience with the AED. Using an AED for someone in cardiac arrest in the first few minutes will triple the chance of recovery. So having hands-on experiences is vital.

This class is required if you have an AED on-site for any, “Expected Users” that may be most likely to need to use it. This class comes with an ASHI certification and ASHI e-textbook as well.

Bloodborne Pathogens

What is the Bloodborne Pathogens course like?

After 2020, we’ve all become more aware of disease prevention, but what about diseases that are transmitted through blood?

Our bloodborne pathogens class will help your facility come up with a plan to protect your staff by minimizing exposure and taking appropriate action in case of someone is accidentally exposed.    You learn what bloodborne pathogens are, what diseases can be transmitted, and how to prevent the spread of disease.

OSHA requires annual bloodborne pathogens training for anyone expected to deal with blood as part of their job.
