American Heart Association Classes
Gulf Bend Center offers the American Heart Association Basic Life Support and Heartsaver classes on the first and third Wednesday of each month.
BASIC LIFE SUPPORT:
The AHA's new BLS Course has been updated to include science and education from the 2015 Guidelines update for CPR and ECC, It teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both prehospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high quality CPR and team dynamics. In the Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills tests. Students also complete a written exam.
The AHA's Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED Course is a classroom, Instructor-led course designed to prepare students to provide first aid, CPR, and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) use in a safe, timely, and effective manner. Also discussed is Opioid overdose and use of the reversal agent, Naloxone.
Upon successful completion of the course, including a first aid skills demonstration and a CPR and AED skills test, students receive a Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED course completion card, valid for two years.
