The American Heart Association’s Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) Programs deliver a dynamic message of hope — the hope of saving lives.  New treatments have improved the possibility of survival from cardiovascular emergencies, cardiac arrest, and stroke. These new treatments offer the hope of improved quality of life for people who suffer these events.  

Increasing public awareness of the importance of early intervention and ensuring greater public access to defibrillation will save many lives.  ECC programs train more than 12 million people every year by educating healthcare providers, caregivers, and the general public on how to respond to these emergencies. 

If a family member, friend or infant in your care had a cardiac or first aid emergency in your presence, could you recognize the signs and respond quickly and appropriately? The American Heart Association has developed a variety of training kits and courses to teach you lifesaving skills.      

Family & Friends® CPR
This course provides basic CPR training in a dynamic group environment using the research-proven Practice-While-Watching method.  This course teaches people 13 and older how to perform CPR and choke saving maneuvers on infants, children and adults. All class participants qualify for a Class Completion Card from the American Heart Association. If you are a teacher or day care provider in need of a card, please tell the instructor.

Family & Friends® First Aid for Children
Students learn to manage illness and injuries in a child for the first few minutes until professional help arrives, along with child safety and preventing injuries. 
Heartsaver® CPR in School
This course teaches middle and high school students lifesaving skills.  The classroom-based course has a unique appeal to students with its training video featuring teen interviews and edgy video footage.
