Vital Life Savers to offer CPR course in March 2020 in the Syracuse metro area

Vital Life Savers will be offering CPR classes in the Syracuse area to keep up with the growing demand for CPR and First Aid courses in the area. Courses will be taught by certified American Heart Association (AHA) instructors. Courses offered include Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare providers, Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED and Heartsaver® CPR AED (Non-healthcare providers).

Advanced courses catered to physicians and allied health professionals included Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) in addition to BLS. Combination courses will also be added to the schedule as the need and demand arises.

Students that have completed the online Heartcode® certifications courses will have the option to attend a hands-on skills session in which they can participate in performing chest compressions on one of our feedback manikins with simultaneous use of our Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

AHA Heartcode hands-on skills sessions are presently offered include BLS, ACLS and PALS. All students that attend a Heartcode skills sessions should be prepared with their Heartcode Certificate of Completion, prior to the start of the skills session.

AHA Heartsavers hands-on skills sessions are also available in our Syracuse location for non-healthcare providers. The area of focus include primarily offered include First Aid and CPR AED Courses.

Our classes will take place at the Marriott Residence Inn Hotel conference room space in Liverpool, New York. This area has serviced students in Syracuse vicinity and we will continue to provide service to students from different regions including Utica, Ithaca, Binghamton and Rochester.

Due to the current pandemic, and to promote social distancing, classes will be kept small with a maximum of 6-8 student to maintain a student to manikin ratio of 1:1. In addition, students will be required to wash and sanitize hands before class, after practicing on manikins and at the conclusion of the class. All students are also required to have face mask during the course.

The facility has limited class size, hence we encourage our students to register early to secure their seat. Students whose certification will expire are especially advised to register early to prevent lapse in certification coverage.

Vital Life Savers will continue to offer same-day certifications to all students that take our courses including our evening students. Certifications are issued to students directly from the American Heart Association in an eCard format.
