SVAC is now offering the following Courses!
- Heart Saver - CPR/AED - Learn CPR, the use of an AED, and choking rescue for adults, children, and infants in a one session, four hour long course.
- Basic Life Support - CPR for the professional rescuer - Identical content as the Heart Saver class but with the addition of a 1/2 hour of topics oriented towards the professional rescuer.
- Senior Options Emergency Medical Technician - Prepares Senior High School Students as entry level Emergency Medical Technicians in career and volunteer positions within the State of New York.
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support for the EMT - EMTs can find themselves in critical situations that require advanced cardiac life support (ACLS).
Although EMTs are not trained to provide advanced-level skills, there is much they can do to improve the quality
of care and the patient's chance for survival by understanding ACLS and facilitating its administration by ALS providers.
ACLS for the EMT will familiarize you with cardiac and respiratory emergencies and the skills used to manage them.
