$70 for a Five-Hour CPR/AED/First-Aid Class ($140 Value)
The Heartsaver CPR/AED/first-aid class is designed for members of the general public, from fitness instructors and maritime personnel to nannies and babysitters—anyone with an interest in learning basic resuscitation for adults, children, and infants. Students learn essential life-saving techniques: how to operate an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to employ proper CPR technique, and how to use an EpiPen. They also learn to treat bleeding, choking, seizures, broken bones, snake bites, poisoning, and other life-threatening emergencies.
Upon completing the course, students receive an official American Heart Association certification card that's valid for two years. Class times and offerings vary by location; schedules are available on each location's website:
Safety Training Seminars
An official American Heart Association CPR training center, Safety Training Seminars has provided first-aid education in life-saving courses since 1989. Although the center's American Heart Association instructors possess extensive life-saving skills, they still know how to present their material for the general public. Despite the urgent nature of the techniques they teach, they manage to create a low-stress and casual environment. Catering to those with busy schedules, classes are scheduled year-round across the Bay Area, with many times and locations available.
