CPR and AED Courses
CPR and AED courses focus on critical skills that can help you save a life. Respiratory and cardiac emergencies happen quickly. You can learn to help save a life in as little as half a day. The different levels cover CPR skills for adults, or adults and children and infants, and one or two person CPR.

People of all ages can suffer heart failure. From choking to cardiac arrest, the situation is life-threatening and requires swift, effective response. Knowing what to do can save a life. St. John Ambulance can give you the skills you need.
