Yes, Hudson EMS currently has 22 American Heart Association Certified Instructors. There are 2 options for attaining or renewing AHA Certification.
The first option requires a minimum of 6 students to hold an in-person 8 hour HeartSaver First Aid, CPR, and AED, or a 6 hour HeartCode BLS Provider class. The cost is $50 per person.
The second option is to complete the online portion of the blended learning course through the AHA website then schedule a 2 hour in-person skills session to practice with training equipment and demonstrate the skills for certification. The skills session and certification card for the HeartSaver course is $35, and for the HeartCode BLS course is $20.
Hudson EMS accepts cash, checks written out to The City of Hudson, or credit cards (with a 3% processing fee).
