Workplace Training

The American Heart Association strongly encourages businesses and public facilities to establish AED (Automated External Defibrillation) programs to increase the chances of survival for people with heart-related emergencies.  AED programs allow people to be better prepared to save the life of a co-worker, friend, family member or stranger.  AEDs have helped save many lives, and with a good implementation plan and proper training, you can help save more lives.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may require a physician’s prescription to buy an AED, and each state has its own training requirements.  For example, almost every state requires an individual to complete basic CPR and AED courses from a nationally recognized organization such as the American Heart Association.  Many states require a licensed medical professional -- often the medical director of an EMS system or the medical advisor to the workplace -- to oversee the program to ensure quality.

Courses for the workplace include Heartsaver CPR, Heartsaver AED, Heartsaver First Aid, and the new Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid.

We offer American Heart Association CPR, ACLS, PALS classes in Missouri and Illinois.
