The American Heart Association’s Spanish Family & Friends CPR Course has been updated to reflect science in the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care.

This video-based classroom course teaches adult Hands-Only™ CPR, adult AED use, child CPR and AED use, and infant CPR. It also teaches how to relieve choking in an adult, child or infant.

Skills are taught by using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which allows participants to practice skills while watching consistent, accurate modeling of skills performance on the course video. Adult, child and infant skills are presented in three separate modules for added flexibility.

This course can be taught by Spanish-speaking AHA Instructors or led by facilitators (such as community members, family members, friends and others) who wish to pass on lifesaving CPR skills to others.

Intended Audience:

The Spanish Family & Friends CPR program is for Spanish speakers who want to learn CPR and prefer to learn in an Instructor-led or facilitated group environment. This course is for people who do not need a course completion card for a job or other requirements.
