Training Programs

The American Heart Association offers many programs for CPR and AED, first aid, and ECC training.

More than 350,000 people in the United States suffer from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year and just 12 percent survive. However, statistics show that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival. Increasing survival from cardiac arrest is why we have created a variety of programs for companies, schools and communities to offer lifesaving CPR and first aid training.

Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival.
