Family & Friends CPR is a classroom-based course that can be taught by an AHA Instructor or led by a facilitator (a community member, family member, or friend) who wishes to share the lifesaving skills of CPR with others. This course is video-led and includes skills practice throughout the course. Skills are taught by using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows participants to practice on a CPR training manikin while skills are demonstrated in the course video.
Course topics can be presented together or taught separately as stand-alone modules.
Following are approximate times for each module:
- Adult Hands-Only CPR/Adult CPR with Breaths/AED/Choking: about 39 minutes
- Child CPR/AED/Choking: about 27 minutes
- Infant CPR/Choking: about 21 minutes
