The Heartsaver® 'First Aid/CPR AED' course is designed to prepare students to provide first aid, perform CPR and use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in a safe, timely, and effective manner. This is a blended-learning course - you will be completing coursework online and participating in an in-person skills test at the Mazama Mountaineering Center (MMC). 

Under this system, students complete the videos at their own pace at home. Upon completion, students print a completion certificate and bring it with them to the skills practice and test session at the MMC. 

Students will then receive their cards (valid for 2-years) in the mail. Easy! 

Note: Registrants who do not bring the certificate into class will not be able to get an AHA card.

Complete information on how to access the on-line portion will be e-mailed to students within two business days of registration.


Priority for this course is given to existing hike leaders needing to renew their certification and prospective hike leaders needing to certify for the first time. If you are a prospective hike leader, please indicate so in your profile and make sure to also sign up for a Hike Leader Training!
