I need a general CPR course to prepare me to save the life of a loved one. Which course is best for me?

 Family & Friends® CPR provides basic CPR training in a dynamic group environment using the research-proven practice-while-watching method.

 I am not a healthcare professional and I need a CPR and AED course for work purposes

Which course should I take? Heartsaver® CPR AED is probably best for you. The AHA offers this course in both classroom-based and eLearning formats.

 Are your courses OSHA compliant?

Our Heartsaver Courses are for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory or other requirements. While these courses are designed to meet OSHA requirements, OSHA does not review or approve any courses for compliance.

 Is there a written exam for the CPR/BLS? 

Yes. The American Heart Association requires each student to complete a written exam in order to obtain a provider card for bls certification.

 May I complete the skills check-off for BLS prior to taking the online course through the American Heart Association?

 No. A certificate of completion must be submitted to an instructor prior to completing the skills check-off. A payment for the online course is submitted to the American Heart Association and a payment is submitted to Amazing Heart for the skills check-off. Please refer to the “links” page. 

 Do I have to purchase a student workbook prior to taking the CPR courses? 


 I have knee or back limitations. Will I be able to take a class?

Is the equipment cleaned regularly?

If I am unable to attend my prepaid class, will my fees be refunded?
