About The Event
The Heartsaver CPR AED course is the Canadian standard in CPR and AED training.
This course is straightforward, comprehensive and based on up-to-date science from experts at the Heart and Stroke Foundation. It provides the skills and confidence to respond to a cardiac arrest at home, in public or at work.
Who is the Heartsaver Course For?
This course is designed for everyday Canadians who don’t have medical training but who want to learn how to help someone having a cardiac arrest.
- People who need a course completion card for workplace, volunteer or other requirements.
- Anyone who wants to be ready, willing and able to help in case of a cardiac arrest or choking.
- Parents and families with children or infants, who want to be prepared for a choking or other health emergencies.
You will learn how to recognize a cardiac arrest, get emergency care on its way quickly and provide help until someone with more advanced training arrives to take over.

Course Completion Card & Expiration Date
Upon successful completion, you will receive a course completion card in CPR and AED to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. It is valid for 1 year from the date of successful course completion.
Studies have shown that CPR skills deteriorate rapidly, and have identified positive effects from brief, more frequent training sessions. As a result, the Heart and Stroke Foundation strongly encourages students to periodically review and practice CPR and AED skills whenever possible.
Cost is $55 per person, which includes a reference manual and your certification card will be mailed to you. Payment can be made after the course is completed. Credit and debit cards are accepted.
