BHB offers Heartsaver CPR AED training to the public

Wednesday 22 May 2024: Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) is celebrating CPR & AED Awareness Week this year with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) courses for the public. BHB is an American Heart Association (AHA) International Training Center. All CPR courses follow AHA guidelines and standards.

A cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, and the victim could be someone you know and love. BHB is pleased to support the American Heart Association and its mission to increase survival from cardiac arrest. The organisation is asking all Bermuda residents who are able, to learn the lifesaving skills of Hands-Only CPR.

BHB will offer the Heartsaver CPR AED course for $20. Training takes approximately two hours and is done to music. People are more likely to remember the correct rate when trained to the beat of a familiar song.

Registering for the courses

Please note that neither course is appropriate for clinicians.

Heartsaver CPR AED ($20 fee) will be offered on Saturday 1 June and Sunday 2 June from 8:30am to 6pm. Four sessions will be offered each day.
