THIS COURSE DOES NOT HAVE A FIRST AID COMPONENT. This program ensures that individuals with a duty to respond (public safety professionals, healthcare providers, etc.) have the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies. The course emphasizes active, hands-on learning and uses scenario-based activities to help participants learn how to provide one rescuer and two-rescuer CPR, multiple rescuer response, how to use an AED and relieve an obstructed airway for adult, child, and infant patients. Participants will learn how to check both a conscious and unconscious patient, and how to give effective ventilations to a patient experiencing a cardiac and/or respiratory arrest, including using a resuscitation mask and bag-valve-mask (BVM) resuscitator.

This course has been approved by the following entities:

  • United States Coast Guard for merchant maritime licensing (First Aid and CPR)

  • ME Emergency Medical Services for MEMS Continuing Education credit (CPR Healthcare Provider)

  • ME Dept of Health and Human Services for Day Care Providers (First Aid and CPR) 

CPR/AED for Healthcare Providers is the equivalent of the American Heart Association's "Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers" and is recognized by Maine EMS and most other regulatory entities as acceptable for licensing.
