CPR & AED Course Description:

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

To provide flexibility in meeting the needs of students, the ASHI CPR and AED training program has the following 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. CPR and AED is designed to include a significant amount of hands-on skill practice.
