The Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only™CPR, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR and relief of choking in an adult, child or infant. These topics can be presented together or taught separately as stand-alone modules. Skills are taught by using the American Heart Association’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows participants to practice on a CPR training manikin while skills are demonstrated in the course video.
Family & Friends CPR may now be taught by an AHA Instructor or led by a facilitator (a community member, family member or friend) who wishes to pass on lifesaving CPR skills to others.
