American Heart Association Heartsaver First Aid Training By AED Superstore
AED Superstore offers American Heart Association® (AHA) Heartsaver® First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogen Training. Depending on your team’s needs, you can select either:
- Heartsaver First Aid certification as a standalone class
- Heartsaver First Aid certification and Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogen Certification (meets OSHA requirements*)
- Heartsaver First Aid Training
Heartsaver First Aid is a video-based, instructor-led classroom course that teaches skills that will allow students to respond to and manage emergencies for the first few critical moments until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives.
Students learn key skills, including how to treat:
- Broken bones
- Other common first aid emergencies, like allergic reactions
Some of the other topics covered include bandaging technique, glove removal, and epinephrine auto-injectors. Hands-on instruction is given where applicable so students can practice and receive feedback, instead of just listening.
Training sessions are 3.5 to 4 hours long, depending on class size.
Choose one or two training sessions for up to 10 people in each class. We purposely keep our class sizes small, so instructors can answer questions and interact with everyone on a more personal level. We find a small class size helps students leave training sessions with the knowledge and confidence to address the emergencies covered in the class.
Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogen Training
The optional Heartsaver® Bloodborne Pathogens is a video-based, instructor-led classroom course for anyone who has a reasonable chance of being exposed to or coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens. Students will learn:
- How to protect themselves from exposure to bloodborne pathogens
- How to clean themselves and the contaminated area
- The proper procedure to report exposure to bloodborne pathogens in the workplace
When BBP certification is included, training sessions are 4 to 4.5 hours long.

We bring training materials and all related supplies. Your training area should include the following elements:
- Video system: TV with DVD player or computer with projector are common setups. The classroom needs to allow for everyone to be able to watch the training video.
- A chair for each student
- Clean and free of clutter or items that would get in the way of training
- Appropriate lighting
- Sufficiently quiet for watching the video and interacting with the instructor. Areas where there’s constant activity or through traffic tend to be distracting and aren’t suitable.
- Tables are optional, but nice to have if available
