CPR/Advanced Life Support
About the Edward Community Training Center
According to the American Heart Association, nearly 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur in the home or away from a hospital or physician's office. It is critical for communities to have access to proper training so they do not feel helpless in the event of an emergency. The Edward Community Training Center was established in 2001 and is now one of the largest training centers in the area. Annually we train around 10,000 people every year in CPR, First Aid and Advanced Life Support. In addition to the classes offered on-site at Edward Hospital, the Community Training Center also offers classes at businesses, organizations, churches and schools. Our community training includes training for both health professionals and the community for both certification and non-certification courses. We have a staff of 40 instructors and 160 affiliated instructors.
