CPR & AED

CPR training: learning to save a life is only hours away

 

In a matter of  hours, you can learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), a life-saving technique that is uncomplicated and easy to learn.

When coupled with an automated external defibrillator (AED), CPR dramatically increases the chances of survival from heart attacks.

Knowing CPR means you have learned a vital link in the Chain of Survival™ for casualties of drowning, choking, or sudden cardiac arrest until full care can be provided in a hospital.

 

St. John Ambulance CPR courses teach basic techniques that can be applied at home, work or play.  All public CPR courses include training in Automated External Defibrillation (AED).  Upon completion of these courses, participants will receive a national St. John Ambulance CPR and AED certificate.  Annual training in CPR and AED is recommended.
