BLS/CPR & First AID

BLS/CPR & First AID​

Who Needs First Aid & BLS/CPR:

Anyone working in or applying to a career in Physical Therapy. Although not common it might be a requirement for anyone working in Home Health Care, as a School Nurse, among others.

We provide American Heart Association certified local CPR BLS & First Aid combo classes in North Florida and South Georgia including Jacksonville FL, Fernandina Beach FL, Saint Mary’s GA, and all surrounding areas. Classes in two convenient locations in Jacksonville and Fernandina Beach.

BLS/CPR reinforces healthcare professionals’ understanding of the importance of early CPR and defibrillation, basic steps of performing CPR, relieving choking, and using an AED; and the role of each link in the Chain of Survival.
First Aid teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrives. First Aid instruction includes bandaging, bleeding, wounds, choking, shock, seizure, fainting, broken bones, sprains, burns, bites, stings, poison, and temperature-related conditions, to name a few.

Heartsaver First Aid & BLS/CPR is offered in a full classroom setting, in a combined format (part Online, part Classroom), and full Online.

I’ve been here twice in the last year, once for my first aid and once for my BLS. They did such a good job at making you feel at home. They cared so much about your input and feedback, it was nice to feel heard. I will always come back here for my renewals. 100% recommend!

This was the best training course I have been to. It was highly engaging, and the time flew by. The instructor was great and presented the information in a way that wasn't dry or boring. I left feeling confident in what I had learned and my ability to put my skills into action if the need ever arises.

Carlos is an awesome instructor! He was funny, made learning fun, and is very knowledgable. I will definitely be back for my renewal, and will recommend First Coast to others in need of BLS training/renewals! I definitely feel more confident in CPR, AED, and the Heimlich maneuver.

COVID-19 Update | MAY UPDATE

TO ALL OF OUR STUDENTS:

Following stage one for the reopening of the State of Florida, First Coast Training Center will continue to offer classes ONLY to Healthcare Providers (Includes students enrolled, have applied, or have been recently accepted into any healthcare program).
Classes will be offered ONLY on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 am, Thursday at 6 pm, and Saturday at 9 am. ACLS classes every other Wednesday at 9 am.
As we continue to monitor the progress made against COVID-19, we will be making decisions to open more classes.

Class size is limited to ONLY 12 students. Every student will be at their own table and have their own gear to practice (Adult and Infant manikins, AED, breathing barriers, etc), and practicing rescue breaths will be voluntary.

All students, upon arrival, will have their temperature taken, and will be asked to wash their hands before entering the class. Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer will be available to clean manikins, hands, and all surfaces as many times as needed, and for anyone who wants to wear gloves, we will have nitrile gloves ready and available. 

Finally, and as it is our policy, if any students would like to pospone, reschedule, or cancel their class, they will be able to do so without acquiring any penalties or fees.

Please, stay safe, and keep on maintaining the social distance protocols.
