AHA HeartSaver First Aid
The AHA Heartsaver® First Aid course is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. Students learn skills such as how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock and other first aid emergencies.
HeartSaver First Aid is one of Annuvia’s most popular training courses. It is perfect to complement HeartSaver CPR/AED training and great for offices, businesses and groups that want to learn important first aid skills in a fun, hands-on atmosphere.
This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in first aid to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. Annuvia’s most common audiences are church groups, small businesses, or large (“enterprise”) organizations that desire training at their workplace.
All of Annuvia’s instructors are full-time healthcare providers with years of medical training and experience. With Annuvia, you learn from the ones that respond when you dial 911!
