Almost 80 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home and are witnessed by a family member.

This course will cover basic adult, child and infant CPR skills as well AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) training for the lay person and non-healthcare worker who needs CPR certification. It includes receipt of an American Heart Association Heartsaver Course Completion Card. Learn CPR today – the life you save could be that of your own loved one! 

Standard First Aid, CPR, AED

$79

with Andrew Eckman

Calendar Apr 1, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Note: This is a two-night course. Students must attend both nights for certification.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique to keep oxygenated blood flowing to vital organs of the body – especially the brain and heart – after cardiac arrest. Coupled with appropriate use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), many victims of sudden cardiac arrest may recover with minimal or no after effects. 

This course will teach participants the skills necessary to save a life: CPR/AED for adults, children and infants, and how to deal with heart attack/cardiac arrest, stroke and choking. The First Aid component teaches participants to recognize and care for sudden illnesses like anaphylactic shock (severe, life-threatening allergic reactions), head and spinal injuries, chest and abdominal injuries, diabetic emergencies, poisoning, bites and stings, musculoskeletal injuries, bleeding control, burns, heat and cold emergencies, and seizures.

This is a “lay responder” or “community” level course, suitable for the general public, as well as Adult or Child Care Providers, Driver Education/Motorcycle Rider Instructors, Maine Guides, Dental Practitioners, etc. Participants successfully completing the program will receive a two-year certification in these skills. 

The program meets or exceeds all applicable medical and/or OSHA guidlines. 

Andrew Eckman has been involved in Emergency Services since 1975, and has served as a police officer, firefighter, Emergency Medical Technician, emergency manager, and disaster manager. He has been a medical instructor for more than 25 years.
