Is EMS Safety approved by AHA?
We are often asked if the EMS Safety program is approved by the American Heart Association (AHA) or follows the AHA guidelines. This is a general misconception. ILCOR is comprised of numerous organizations, including AHA. However, AHA does not approve other training programs, nor does it produce its own guidelines. Instead, AHA follows the same guidelines produced by ILCOR that EMS Safety follows. Therefore, we are an equivalent program with the documentation to prove it.
You can feel safe knowing that all equivalent programs are teaching the same materials as far as treatment and care. We just package and deliver it differently.
There are so many CPR training programs out there today. It’s hard to know which are considered high-quality programs and which have little to no weight if you need a certification for an employer or licensing agency.
All reputable CPR training programs follow the resuscitation guidelines provided by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). These guidelines are traditionally updated every 5 years -- but will now be released as needed -- and are continuously evaluated to ensure the most up-to-date research is being used in the most effective manner. ILCOR’s ultimate goal is to save more lives globally through resuscitation.
In turn, training programs develop and update their curriculum based on these guidelines. EMS Safety creates new materials with each major guideline release and continues to update the curriculum any time there are significant additional updates.
Foster parents are required to be CPR & First Aid certified.
