Asterion Health & Safety Manager, Ms. Billie Dzunda, organized the training which included both hands-on coaching and classroom teaching conducted by an American Heart Association certified instructor. Meeting OSHA regulatory requirements, the course prepared all Asterion students how to provide first aid, CPR, and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. Upon successful completion of the comprehensive course, all participants were certified for two years.

As stated on the American Heart Association website, Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED teaches “critical skills needed to respond to and manage an emergency until emergency medical services arrives.” Skills covered in the course included first aid, choking relief, and what to do for sudden cardiac arrest in adults, children, and infants.
