AHA CPR, First Aid & AED (American Heart Association)

AHA CPR 1st Aid AED ClassroomWhilst we offer the American Heart Association CPR, First Aid, and AED course for our customers as a prerequisite for certain dive training, the course is available to anyone: divers and non-divers. During your course, we will cover basic yet potentially life saving techniques like chest compressions, AED administration, dealing with a choking victim, and more. The AHA CPR, First Aid, and AED course is great for people of all ages. It’s an excellent class for a family to take together, coworkers, couples, friends, etc. I ran out of ideas of who could take it, but it’s almost anyone!
