Adding ASHI CPR and First Aid courses
As a result of the AHA Heartsaver certification card price increase effective Oct. 3, 2017, we have decided to offer ASHI CPR and First Aid courses to our community. both public courses and onsite, (custom-requested) courses. American Safety and Health Institute has been teaching emergency response courses for 21 years, and is considered the #3 provider of CPR & First Aid training (behind AHA and ARC).
The difference in price for one student between a $55 course and a $45 course might seem negligible, but for companies that train 8-25 employees, the difference is significant.
We became an authorized ASHI Training Center on Oct. 20th, and began offering private, onsite courses on Oct. 29th.
We still have a good relationship with American Heart Association, and are still an official AHA Training Site with Same-Day-Certification for every AHA course. In fact, for our healthcare clinicians and students, the only BLS course we will offer is official AHA BLS Provider. In the healthcare world in GA – any other BLS course is generally not accepted.
That is not the case in the OSHA workplace, fitness trainer, private workplace world. Our ASHI courses meet the current ILCOR (Int’l Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) guidelines and all AHA ECC, CPR and First Aid Guidelines. ASHI training programs meet current OSHA standards and Standards for First Aid and CPR training of the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Public Health Association, and National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education. These fitness and sports medicine licensing boards accept ASH CPR & 1st Aid: NASM, ACE, NSCA, NETA, AFAA, AFPA, ACSM, and ISSA.
Again, for EMTs, doctors, nurses, dentists, dental hygienists, and students in all of those areas – we will only offer AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers course. But, for our family, workplace, fitness students – we will offer both ASHI CPR, ASHI First Aid, and AHA Heartsaver First Aid/CPR. Here’s our schedule. We also will offer ASHI Child and Babysitting Safety courses beginning in January.
