The use of the AED and relief of choking is included in the curriculum. Participants often include security guards, firefighters, police, school teachers, coaches, foster parents and childcare providers. A course completion card is issued the next business day to participants after they have successfully completed the skills demonstrations. The course completion card is valid for two years.
