Noncredit 4

Prince George's Community College uses instructional materials from the American Heart Association (AHA) and the National Safety Council (NSC) to administer first aid and CPR training. Both nationally recognized programs maintain the highest standards of emergency health and safety training. By offering both, we provide you the opportunity to select the program that best meets your personal and professional needs. Use of these materials in an educational course, does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA, and any fees charged do not represent income to the association.

Classes are held both on the college's main campus, in Largo, and at the University Town Center in Hyattsville.

CPR Facts:
Anyone can learn CPR, and should. CPR can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. Click here to view a "Hands Only" CPR Demo.
If you witness a collapse, "hands only" is a good starting point. However, if you find someone collapsed, CPR will need to be administered in its entirety, including the administration of breathing techniques and compression. (AHA, 2015). "The Love You Save May Be Your Own!"
