CPR and First Aid Courses

SJ Swimmers is a training center for American Safety and Health Institute

You Can Save A Life!

American Safety and Health Institute CPR and Basic First Aid course gives you the skills to perform CPR on a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally.

Each session covers how to recognise an emergency, what to do to protect yourself and others, and how to activate and use an "Emergency Action Plan."

Assessment is through a combination of practical first aid activities, evaluation and an online test. Participants who complete the online course work and are able to independently demonstrate the skills receive certification valid for 2 years.

CPR is short for "cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. This is the skill used to help anyone who is not breathing and shows no sign of life.

Choking occurs when a person can no longer cough, speak or breath. This life-threatening breathing emergency requires immediate care.

AED stands for "automated external defibrillator." This is the device that gives an electrical shock to help restart the heart of the victim of cardiac arrest.


First Aid teaches emergency care for severe bleeding, broken bones, injuries to muscles and soft tissue, burns, poisoning/allergic reactions, animal bites and stings, sudden illness and extreme heat or cold.
