UVES has been a leading provider of American Heart Association (AHA) training and education programs in the Southern Tier of New York since 2000. They are a certified training center for the AHA and their offerings are geared toward various experience levels, ranging from the community layperson to the experienced healthcare provider.

Classes can be taken at the UVES office or offered at your own facility.

The AHA Heartsaver® CPR/AED course is an instructor-led classroom course that teaches adult CPR and AED use, as well as how to relieve choking on an adult. An AHA instructor conducts video-based lessons and works with students to complete their CPR and AED skills practice and testing.

This course is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs an AHA course completion card in CPR and AED use to meet job, regulatory or other requirements. The course meets the requirements for both initial and renewal certifications. Upon successful completion, students receive an AHA Heartsaver® CPR/AED course completion card, valid for two years.

The Heartsaver® CPR/AED course can be taken as a classroom-based format or in three parts:

  • Part 1 – a web-based, self-directed program that uses interactive lessons and videos to teach students CPR and
    AED use. Upon successful completion, students receive a Part 1 certificate of completion, which allows students to continue with Parts 2 and 3.
  • Part 2 – a hands-on skills practice session with an authorized AHA Heartsaver® instructor.
  • Part 3 – a skills test with an authorized AHA Heartsaver® instructor. Upon successful completion, students receive an AHA Heartsaver® CPR/AED course completion card.

Use the website link above for a current listing of courses offered by UVES.

NOTE: When setting up an AED PAD (Public Access Defibrillation) program in New York State, it is a state-requirement to get CPR/AED certification to be knowledgeable in the operation of an AED. The American Heart Association’s Hands-Only™ CPR, also referred to as Anytime CPR® in class offerings, does NOT cover AED operation and does NOT provide CPR/AED certification (i.e., you will NOT receive an AHA course completion card). AHA Hands-Only™ CPR allows the general public to learn the basic CPR steps to become an asset to their community, providing immediate high-quality CPR prior to the arrival of emergency responders, in the event of a witnessed cardiac arrest event. This life-saving skill is crucial as a link in the Chain of Survival for sudden cardiac arrest victims.
