CPR/AED, First Aid & BLS Certification in Georgia, GA Approved by AHA Trained Physicians

Unlike most other online CPR/AED, First Aid & BLS certification courses, our CPR and BLS Certification in Georgia was written and approved by American Heart Association trained U.S board certified physicians and healthcare providers. As a result, you can feel confident in the quality of our CPR/AED, first aid, and BLS certification courses. Our online course covers the same topics that American Heart association compliant classroom courses train you on. But, our CPR/AED training and exam are more affordable and convenient than many classroom-based CPR/AED, First Aid & BLS training courses.

What is Covered in the Online CPR/AED Certification Course?

This online CPR class will take participants through an in-depth learning style covering the topics mentioned below. We have briefly described what you should expect to be covered in each topic. By the end of this course, you will derive a comprehensive understanding of managing different emergencies and the precautions to take to protect yourself while at them.

  1. New changes recommended in AHA official guidelines - This topic will cover the updated changes that have been made to the CPR and First Aid rules since the previous guidelines were put in place. A good example emphasizes how important the quality of compressions is in contributing to survival. The American Heart Association recommends chest compressions reaching at least two inches but not exceeding 2.4 inches in adults. The American Heart Association recommends 100 to 120 compressions per minute for hands-only CPR training.
  2. Good Samaritan Laws and Chain of Survival - Bystanders are often reluctant to assist victims because they fear they may face legal ramifications if something goes wrong. However, Good Samaritan laws offer protection in such cases. Also, in the unfortunate event of a cardiac emergency, you must follow a specific series of steps called Chain of Survival to increase the chances of survival. It includes steps recognizing cardiac arrest early, getting early access to medical attention, early CPR, early defibrillation, etc.
  3. Symptoms of Sudden Cardiac Arrest - Recognizing the symptoms of cardiac arrest early has proven to be quite helpful in saving lives. This comprehensive training class will help you learn the symptoms of cardiac arrest and the warning signs to the lookout.
  4. Universal Precautions - Universal Precautions recognize that human blood and other bodily fluids are potentially infectious and cause diseases. For this reason, you will be trained to protect yourself at all times. In addition, your first aid kit must include the appropriate PPEs to protect you, such as CPR barriers, gloves, face masks, gowns, etc.
  5. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) - CPR training will teach you how to administer this lifesaving technique in different scenarios involving different age groups during your training. The course will also teach high-quality CPR protocol for single and two rescuers.
    • Adult - The CPR training will guide you on performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation on older patients past puberty. You will learn the proper depth and speed of compressions to use.
    • Child - You will also learn how to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation on children above 1 to those just getting into puberty.
    • Infant - For babies below one year, special attention is needed when performing CPR to avoid causing more harm than good. The training will educate you on how to do this effectively.
  6. Treatment for a Conscious Adult Choking Victim - This training will teach you how to identify the symptoms of a choking person and how to help them. If a severe case of choking in conscious adults results in upper airway obstruction, use the Heimlich technique to save the victim's life. You can also use chest thrusts and back blows. If the victim can still speak and breathe, encourage them to cough to remove the object choking them.
  7. Treatment for an Unconscious Adult Choking Victim - Immediate CPR & first aid is recommended if a victim loses consciousness due to choking. After performing a set of chest compressions, look inside the victim's mouth and remove any material within your reach that is causing the choking. Continue with rescue breaths giving two slow but full breaths and pausing in the middle.
  8. Hands-only CPR - For bystanders, it's highly recommended that they perform compression-only CPR (hands-only CPR) on adults who are victims of cardiac arrest. The recommended guideline is to provide high-quality compressions that involve pushing hard and fast at the center of the victim's chest with minimum interruptions between the compressions. It should be done until trained rescuers, or an AED arrives.
  9. Recovery Position - The course covers placing an unconscious victim to ensure their airway stays clear and open and prevents them from choking due to vomit or other fluids. In addition, during your CPR and First Aid training, you will learn the recommended recovery position for a cardiac arrest victim and any emergencies like fractured bones. The lesson will clearly explain when and how to use the recovery position in this course.
  10. Conscious Choking - It's vital to recognize the signs of choking quickly and take immediate action to help save the lives of choking victims. For example, in a conscious choking victim, you may observe them clutching their throat with their hands. Other signs may be difficulty in speaking and coughing. This training will teach you how to and the factors to consider when helping a conscious choking victim.
  11. Treatment for a Choking Baby - Most choking incidents in children are preventable when we carefully watch what they put in their mouths. However, one can save the baby's life by removing the object choking them if it happens. To do this, firmly support the baby's head and neck. Then perform five gentle back blows between their shoulder blades and five chest thrusts with two fingers at 1.5 inches. Call 911 immediately if this doesn't help. You'll get a clear demonstration of this during your training.
  12. Treatment for a Conscious Choking Child (1-7 years old) - To treat choking in a conscious child, first determine whether the choking is mild or severe. In the case of mild choking, stay near the child and encourage them to cough to dislodge the object stuck in their throat. If choking is severe and the child can't breathe or make a sound, act fast to remove the object. You can use the Heimlich maneuver. Kneel behind the child at shoulder level and give them abdominal thrusts repeatedly until the object comes out.
  13. Treatment for an Unconscious Choking Child (1-7 years old) - If a child chokes and slips into unconsciousness, lay them down on a firm flat surface. You can scream for help and ask them to call 911 or get an AED if someone comes. Check for the child's breathing and immediately begin CPR. First, give 30 chest compressions, check the child's mouth for the object choking them, and remove it. Then give two rescue breaths. Continue with the 30 pushes and two breaths until the child responds or helps arrive.
  14. Use of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) - This topic will educate you on using an Automated External Defibrillator training device to revive someone who has just suffered cardiac arrest for adult and pediatric cases. Once you have an AED at hand, check for unresponsiveness in the victim. If there is no breathing or it appears abnormal, start CPR. If there is no pulse, attach the AED pads to the upper right chest and lower left chest. If advised, analyze the victim's heart rhythm and only press the "Shock" button. Learn more on this during the certification training.
  15. Use of a mask/barrier device - Generally, as someone offering emergency assistance to a victim, you need to create a barrier between yourself and any moist area in the victim's body. Masks and other protective barriers help to prevent unsafe contamination that body fluids like saliva or blood can cause. When performing CPR and first aid to adults or children, rescuers should use protective gear like CPR mouth barriers, eye shields, face masks, and gloves. The training will educate you on the effective use of PPEs.
  16. Exam - After going through all the above topics, the last thing will be an exam. To test your knowledge of CPR and First Aid techniques, you will take a multiple choice exam that you will have to score 70% to pass. Once you pass this exam, you will immediately download your temporary digital certificate. In most cases, your physical card is mailed the same day.
