This course is designed to meet OSHA requirements and teaches basic first aid, CPR, and AED skills such as giving CPR to an infant, child, or an adult.

Heartsaver® First Aid is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives.

BLS (Basic Life Support) for Healthcare Providers Classroom Course is designed to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR , use an AED , and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.

*ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) covering the clinical interventions for the urgent treatment of cardiac arrest, stroke and other life-threatening medical emergencies, as well as the knowledge and skills to deploy those interventions. This course is designed for healthcare professionals such as Paramedics and Registered Nurses as well as others.

*PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) teaches emergency management of pediatric patients approaching or already in respiratory or cardiac arrest, from the early minutes through patient stabilization and/or the transport phases of a pediatric emergency, in or out of the hospital.

*PEARS (Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization) PEARS teaches providers how to recognize respiratory distress, shock and cardiac arrest, and provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until the child is transferred to an advanced life support provider. The goal of PEARS is to improve the quality of care provided to seriously ill or injured infants and children, resulting in improved outcomes.

PEARS is for healthcare providers such as emergency medical technicians (EMTs), medical and surgical nurses, school nurses and any other healthcare provider who infrequently sees critically ill infants and children

*PHTLS (Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support) This course is designed to improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs.

EMS Safety The NAEMT’s EMS Safety course teaches students how to protect themselves and their patients while on the job. It promotes a culture of safety and helps reduce the number of on-the-job fatalities and injuries. EMS Safety is the only national, comprehensive safety course for EMS practitioners. Its interactive format features real-life case studies and compelling discussions on current safety issues, and provides participants with a forum to share their own experiences. Critical thinking stations help build participants’ risk assessment and decision-making skills.

*EVOS (EMS Vehicle Operator Safety) The NAEMT's EMS Vehicle Operator Safety (EVOS) course addresses the knowledge gap that leads to injuries and deaths, and focuses on the specific behaviors that need to be changed to create a culture of safe driving.

Drawing on the most current research about the behaviors and other hazards that lead to crashes, EVOS features case studies and analyses of both common and catastrophic collisions. EVOS challenges EMS practitioners to reconsider their preconceptions about safe vehicle operations. Instructors can easily incorporate local laws, rules and policies into the curriculum. Topics covered in the course include:

  • Making driving safety a priority
  • Legal aspects of EMS vehicle operation
  • Maneuvering an EMS vehicle
  • Vehicle inspection and maintenance
  • Mental, emotional and physical preparedness
  • Emergency response
  • Crash prevention
  • Driving skills
  • Technological aids
  • Simulation training

EVOS is appropriate for EMS practitioners at all levels.  EVOS is accredited by CAPCE and recognized by NREMT.
