Health Services Training

    Welcome to the Shawnee Community College American Heart Association Training Center. The goal of the Health Training Department is to deliver the most up-to-date, science-based training available for treating life threatening emergencies in the workplace and community. A wide variety of courses are offered using highly trained instructors. Emergency Medical classes are taught by request using curriculum standards in place by the Illinois Department of Public Health/ Transportation and the local emergency medical services.

     "The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS, and PALS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course material, do not represent income to the Association."
