CPR, AED, & Basic First Aid Course Description:

The ASHI CPR, AED, and Basic First Aid training program is intended for individuals who are not healthcare providers or professional rescuers but desire or are required to be certified in CPR, the use of an AED, and first aid. There are no prerequisites.

To provide flexibility in meeting the needs of students, the ASHI CPR, AED< and Basic First Aid training program has the following certification options:

  • Adult Only-Common to meet workplace compliance
  • Adult and Child-When narrowly specified training is required
  • Adult, Child, and Infant-Broad training for all applications

The goal of this training program is to help students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to respond in a medical emergency. Founded in basic principles of instructional design and learning theory, ASHI promotes a “toolbox” approach to learning. This approach gives instructors flexibility in both presentation strategies and materials in order to reach students with widely varying abilities in the countless instructional settings that exist in the real world.
