Once you’ve completed the required lessons and passed the accompanying skills, you’ll complete your certification with hands-on, in-person training.

KC First Aid specializes in teaching first aid training, with both public and private classes throughout the Kansas City and surrounding area. Classes offered include Heartsaver Adult First Aid, Heartsaver Adult First Aid with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillators (AED), Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid, and Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid with CPR and AED.

The American Heart Association is the recognized authority in resuscitation science and first aid training.  The American Heart Association and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have formed an alliance to help raise awareness about heart disease and stroke.
