Heartsaver Provider Course

Bookings taken for 6 or more participants

The Heartsaver curriculum consists of the adult one rescuer CPR module, including relief of FBAO. Risk factors, prudent heart living (prevention), signs and signals for action, the chain of survival concept, and the warning signs and risk factors for stroke are included in this course. The Heartsaver Course is appropriate for most lay rescuers. Most learners can complete instruction and practice in about 4 hours. No skills testing or written examination are required, and course completion cards are not issued for this course. A course participation card maybe issued to all learners regardless of their level of activity in the course.

Additional information may be added to the Heartsaver Course, such as the module on barrier devices. Pediatric CPR and FBAO skills (Module 2) also may be added. The final decision about course content rests with the course director. Regardless of which additional information or BLS modules are added to the Heartsaver Course, the course participation card will reflect only the Heartsaver name.

The goal of CPR training is not to produce a “perfect manikin strip” but rather to understand and gain the broad psychomotor skills necessary to perform this lifesaving technique.
