Designed to teach basic life-saving skills, our Heartsaver First Aid and CPR course is a video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students the critical skills necessary to respond to a wide range of medical emergencies and provide lifesaving assistance until professional medical help can arrive.
This course is meant for anyone interested in learning CPR and basic first aid and is not designed exclusively for medical professionals. Our Heartsaver First Aid and CPR course takes advantage of the American Heart Association’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback, and guide the students’ learning of skills.
The Heartsaver First Aid and CPR course takes approximately six hours to complete. Students who complete this course can look forward to learning skills such as first-aid basics, CPR for adults, CPR for children and infants, treating common injuries, treating common medical emergencies, treating opioid-associated life-threatening emergencies, and more.

“My recertification for both PALS and BLS were due during the COVID-19 pandemic, and EA certs was the only local provider that had a class open for the next day. The fees were comparable to other local AHA listed providers. Registration for the course was completed via text and online, which was easy to navigate through. I appreciated that the class size was small, but social distancing and masks were used. As a pediatric dentist, we don’t use many of the PALS concepts in our work setting and the algorithms usually go over my head, but the instructor Mike Z reviewed the material and made it very easy to grasp. He also tailored the review to make it more pertinent to my field of work, and he made the review worth my time. If you’re looking for a no fuss, straight-to-the-point but thorough BLS or PALS training, consider EA Certs. I’ll be bringing my colleagues here with me every two years!”
