The American Heart Association’s Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR,
adult CPR with breaths, child CPR, adult and child AED use, infant CPR, and choking relief for adults, children, and infants.

These topics can be presented together or taught separately as stand-alone modules. Skills are taught by using the AHA’s research-proven
practice-while-watching technique, which allows participants to practice on a CPR training manikin while observing a demonstration of the skills
in the course video.
Family & Friends CPR may be taught by an AHA Instructor or led by a facilitator (a community member, family member, or friend) who wishes to
pass on lifesaving CPR skills to others

Family & Friends CPR is intended for anyone who wants to learn CPR, but does not need a
CPR course completion card to meet a job requirement. This course is ideal for community
groups, parents, grandparents, caregivers, schools and students, and others interested in
learning how to save a life.
As a facilitated or Instructor-led course, Family & Friends CPR extends the availability of
and access to training, so that more people can learn CPR and use their skills to act quickly
in an emergency.
