AHA CPR/AED for Health Care Provider

(CPR for doctors, nurses, and other allied health professionals)

Currently, due to small number of people inquiring about health care provider certification/recertification, we are offering certification through a hybrid course offered by the American Heart Association.  The hybrid course consists of an online portion (lasting approximately 1-2 hours) of didactic learning, followed by in-person, hands-on skills practice and evaluation.   This course costs approximately $22.00 on the AHA website: http://www.onlineaha.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=main.courseCatalog

Once the course is complete, the completion certification should be printed and contact us to set up the skills practical/test.  The skills session and certification completion card are no charge for residents of Crofton/Gambills/Davidsonville. (donations are always appreciated).  The skills session normally lasts 45 minutes-1 hour depending on the needs of the student.  

 

About the Instructors

AVFD has an in-house staff of four American Heart Association certified instructors.  They offer over 60 years of combined EMS experience.

 

CPR Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between Heartsaver and Health Care Provider? (Which CPR class do I need?)

Most people who take CPR should only need the Heatsaver course.  This course was developed by the AHA to a more streamlined and accessible CPR course, free of much of the technical medical jargon and terminology.  Our primary goal with the Heartsaver course is giving you, the student, the confidence to make a difference when you encounter or witness someone having a cardiac emergency.

The Health Care Provider course is a more in-depth course, designed for medical professionals who already have medical training.  This course is tailored towards professionals who will encounter critical cardiac emergencies in a medical setting.

If you have any question about which course you need, feel free to email us at avfdcpr@gmail.com and we'll help you figure it out.

Are courses only for Crofton/Gambrills/Davidsonville residents?

AVFD believes in wide CPR education and training.  Due to our limited operating budget for these classes, we are limiting our no-cost classes to our fire department's first-due area.  For residents of other areas, we are willing to provide instructor time and materials at cost.  Please contact avfdcpr@gmail.com for details.
