Course Descriptions

Which class is right for me?

Training and Safety offers a variety of courses geared both towards those who are working in the health care field and those who are not. We offer three different types of classes, BLS for Healthcare Provider (HCP), Heartsaver CPR/AED and ECSI First Aid. We teach all courses to the standards of the American Heart Association (AHA) or ECSI respectively.

NEW – We know offer HeartCode Skills Sessions!


HeartCode® BLS Skills Session ($25)

This session covers the 2nd (skills practice) and 3rd (skills testing) portion of the American Heart Association online HeartCode® BLS certification course. The course offers a unique alternative to the traditional BLS for Healthcare Providers course. Student’s complete the 1st portion online on their own time, and then they must complete parts 2 and 3 with an instructor.

Note: This skills session DOES NOT include the online portion.

Students MUST purchase and complete the first part separately and prior to attending this class.
