Heartsaver First Aid CPR & AED can be taught in a classroom as a video-based, instructor-led course or can be done with eLearning.

Instructor-Led Course

Heartsaver courses are designed for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (e.g., OSHA), or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.

These courses teach students critical skills needed to respond to and manage a first aid, choking or sudden cardiac arrest emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. This course is also broken down to teach the very basic needs such as CPR/AED adult training or to allow the student to gain more knowledge in basic first aid and CPR/AED with children and infants by taking a full Heartsaver certification. There are four Heartsaver certification types:

  • Heartsaver CPR & AED
  • Heartsaver First Aid, CPR & AED
  • Heartsaver First Aid
  • Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid CPR/AED

Price ranges for these courses are $55 - $100 per person. Please call Bobby Horn at 573-884-8535 to receive additional information and pricing.

Blended eLearning:

Heartsaver blended learning training offers flexibility for employers, students, and Instructors. The eLearning (online) portion of the course is designed to teach students the cognitive information needed for first aid and/or CPR and AED training. Upon completion of the online portion, students must complete hands-on session with an AHA BLS or Heartsaver Instructor focused on meaningful skills coaching, practice, and testing.

This program is completed in three steps: the online cognitive program, skills practice and skills testing.

Step 1: Online Cognitive Program

  • You will be assigned a course by eLearning.heart.org by University of Missouri - Columbia
  • Course: Heartsaver CPR/AED Online

Within the email there will be a link that will automatically enroll in your course. If you do not already have an account set up on eLearning.heart.org, you will be asked to register prior to beginning your course.

  • Complete the program you have purchased. You do not have to do it all at one time. You may log out and log back in.
  • Print your completion certificate located at the end of your online program.
  • Once you have completed the Online Cognitive Program, you have 60 days to complete your skills test or the online portion becomes null and void. Please plan ahead so that you may complete this AHA requirement.
  • Bring the completion certificate with you to your skills check date. You must turn this in or your skills will not be checked at your appointment.
