CardioCare CPR Training has been serving people in Melbourne, Brevard County and our neighboring cities and counties in Florida, for over 22 years. Group classes can be scheduled at your facility, our ours, or individuals can attend classes being offered in their area, our at our classroom on the Melbourne Square Mall property.
Additionally, we offer “blended” classes (AHA Heartcode and ASHI BLS) where a portion is completed online & the other portion is completed either in-person or in a remote Zoom video skills session with a certified instructor.
CPR Training is Authorized by Who?
The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation or ILCOR is a group of governing bodies from numerous countries throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Africa, and Asia who set the standards for resuscitation and first aid techniques and instruction. The United States representation on the ILCOR is the American Heart Association or AHA. The guidelines are then taken by multiple different groups whom each form their own curriculum or educational processes to teach the guidelines. These groups include the American Heart Association (AH), the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI), The American Red Cross (ARC), National Safety Council (NSC), and Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI).
Each set their own course requirements to achieve cognitive and skills compliance to the set ILCOR guidelines. Unfortunately, other CPR companies also claim to be “nationally accredited.” However, many of these companies are approved by phony or irrelevant foundations and associations. Only the 5 listed in this description are nationally accredited, and CardioCare CPR Training and Certification LLC is affiliated with — and authorized by two of them — both the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI).
