The First Aid Certification and the CPR & AED (Adults, Children and Infants) Certification are valid for two (2) years from the training date.  Basic Life Support Certification is valid for two yearsBlood Borne and Airborne Certification expires after one year.

CPR means Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and is performed by compressing the sternum (breast bone) deep (about 1/3 of the depth of the chest for children and infants, but NOT for adults) and fast (at least 100 times per minute but not more than 120), without taking the hand off the chest, to keep vital organs oxygenated as long as possible.

According to the latest Guidelines, the compressions need to be done as sets of 30 compressions (pumps, down and up), followed by two breaths (the breaths should take less than 5 seconds), then 30 compressions, two breaths, 30 compressions, two breaths, and so on, until the Paramedics (EMT) arrive and take over. Compressions without the breaths are also OK.

The compressions (pumping) should force the chest go down at least 2″ for adults, about 2″ for children, and about 1.5″ for infants, at a pace between 100 and 120 per minute.

AED (Automated External Defibrillation) has the purpose of jump-starting the heart (for each minute an AED is NOT used, the chances of the person to come back to life are diminished by 10%). The AED Certification enables each person who took the training to use an AED anywhere one is available, if a person becomes unconscious and suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

Training on help in case of choking is always included.

The AED Certification is bundled together with the CPR and BLS (Basic Life Support for the Health Care and Professional Rescuers, also called Professional CPR).
