AHA Family & Friends CPR

The American Heart Association (AHA) Family & Friends CPR course is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a CPR course completion card in CPR for their job.  This course is ideal for schools and students, new parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life.  Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment by using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

If you are a healthcare professional or in medical/dental/nursing school, please take the BLS for Healthcare Providers course.  If you are required to have a CPR or First Aid certification card for your employment, please take a Heartsaver course.
