Basic First Aid
The ASHI Basic First Aid program is designed for individuals that are not healthcare providers or professional rescuers, but are required by their employer or just desire to have some extra knowledge in the event of an emergency. There are no requirements/prerequisites to taking this class.
CPR & AED
The ASHI CPR & AED program is designed for individuals that are not healthcare providers or professional rescuers, but are required by their employer or just desire to have some extra knowledge in the event of an emergency.
This program can be offered in multiple different formats:
*Adult Only – Common for workplace training
*Adult/Child – When more specific training is required
*Adult/Child/Infant – Broad training for all situations
The CPR & AED program can be and is often incorporated into the Basic First Aid program for a comprehensive training program.
While there are no requirements/prerequisites to taking this class, CPR can be a physically challenging skill to learn. We recommend that individuals taking this class be 14 or older at the time of the class. If a young friend or family member would like to attend with you and cannot complete the skills, they will NOT be charged for the full class!
