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.

Take a moment to view the following video with the signs and symptoms for women during a heart attack.

Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death.  Recent studies have shown that good quality Basic Life Support upon sudden cardiac arrest, is more important to a patient’s survival than advanced emergency care once they reach the hospital. The study also found that patients treated with basic life support in the field were more than 50% more likely to survive 90 days after hospital discharge than those who received advanced life support. They were also less likely to experience poor cognitive functioning, compared with those receiving advanced care.
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 12,000 individuals in CPR, First Aid and Advanced Life Support.  We have a staff of 40 instructors and 160 affiliated instructors. 

In addition to the class offered on-site at Edwards Hospital, the Community Training Center also offers classes at:
