CPR & First Aid Training

Since 1995, as part of our commitment to the people of the Brazos Valley, and our belief in the value of education, CHI St. Joseph Health continues to offer American Heart Association CPR Classes & First Aid Training. Course descriptions and scheduling information is listed below.

Heartsaver® CPR AED is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches adult and child CPR and AED use, infant CPR, and how to relieve choking in adults, children, and infants. This course teaches skills with the AHA's research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows instructors to observe students, provide feedback, and guide the students' learning of skills.

Heartsaver® First Aid teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services arrives. This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in First Aid, CPR, and AED use to meet job, regulatory, or other requirements.

Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED Blended Learning Course is designed to prepare students to provide first aid, CPR and use an AED in a safe, timely, and effective manner. 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. This course is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on session with an instructor.

Heartsaver® Pediatric First Aid CPR AED Blended Learning Course is designed to teach students the cognitive information needed to respond to and manage illnesses and injuries in a child or infant in the first few minutes until professional help arrives. This course is a combination of eLearning, in which a student completes part of the course in a self-directed manner, followed by a hands-on session with an instructor. This course is designed to meet the regulatory requirements for child care workers in all 50 U.S. states.

Audience: child care workers, teachers, foster care workers, camp counselors, youth organizations, coaches for children's sports organizations, others responsible for children including parents, grandparents, babysitters, and guardians. Upon completion of the online portion of this class, students receive a certificate of completion, which they must present to be allowed entry into the instructor-led hands-on skills session.

The Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers course trains participants to promptly recognize several life-threatening emergencies, give high-quality chest compressions, deliver appropriate ventilations and provide early use of an AED.

In this Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam.

HeartCode Basic Life Support (BLS) Instructor-led Hands-on Session is a structured course focused on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, and skills testing. This newly offered course is more comprehensive than the skills practice and testing session for the 2010 Guidelines blended learning courses. Students must complete the online portion of the course prior to attending the hands-on session. Upon successful completion of the online portion, including the course exam, students receive a certificate of completion, which they must present for entry into an Instructor-led hands-on skills session.
