Heart Saver (Lay-Person) Certification
The American Heart Association (AHA) Heart Saver course is a basic course intended for people who have no medical training that teaches cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). It is the course we teach to UMass Lowell R.A.'s, Recreation Center staff, ROTC members and others. It is ideal for individuals who are responsible for large groups of people through their employment or activities. Upon certification, you have no legal obligation to help a person in need dictated by the AHA or Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and you cannot be sued for attempting or not attempting to help a person.
Health Care Provider (HCP or BLS) Certification
The AHA HCP course is an advanced course intended for people who will be working in the medical field. The CPR course is required for EMTs, nurses, first responders, and doctors. Includes CPR and AED use.
We also teach the refresher course for HCP/BLS certifications, which requires that you have a current AHA HCP/BLS CPR certification.
Please note that there are two different certification levels for CPR (Heart Saver or Health Care Provider/BLS). Be sure to know which you are registering for
