Being issued a Successful Completion Card in First Aid, CPR or AED does not mean that you must respond in an emergency situation. For the lay rescuer, the decision to help or not to help in any situation is yours to make. If you choose to assist someone in need of first aid, you are protected under the Good Samaritan Law.
The law is based on "the principle that a person attempting to aid another in imminent danger and who then is sued by the one they attempted to aid, will not be charged with contributory negligence unless the rescuer attempts or provides first aid that is unreasonable or the rescuer acts unreasonably in performing the attempted rescue or first aid."
The Good Samaritan law's purpose is to keep people from being so reluctant to help a stranger in need for fear of legal repercussions, if they made some mistake in treatment. Therefore, this doctrine was primarily developed for first aid encounters and every state does have its own adapted version. Remember, a person is not obligated by law to perform first aid in most states, not unless it's part of a job description. Some states will consider it an act of negligence, if we don't at least call for help. Beyond this, assisting is optional and voluntary, partly due to preserving the rescuers own health in the process.
Our instructors are trained by American Heart Association. They develop the course curriculum, quiz and the material presented in the video demonstrations. Our instructors are also available for any questions or further clarification about the classes.
You should receive your American Heart Association e-Card 1-2 business days after the course is completed. This card will be delivered to the email you provided when enrolling in the course. We can provide you a temporary letter the day of the class stating that you have completed the class.

AED stands for automated external defibrillator. An AED is a small electronic portable device, which automatically diagnoses and treats life-threatening ventricular fibrillation or quivering of the heart. With the use of an AED, the heart is able to re-establish a normal, effective heart rhythm. In our CPR/AED certification course you will watch a video that explains the basics of an AED device.
