Course Information

This course teaches the essential skills required by an AED operator and gives students the confidence to know what to do in this kind of emergency.  Discover simple to follow steps for emergency care.  This course focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency.
