Sandy, UT – The cost of First Aid, CPR, and AED training has been lowered to make it easier for companies, groups, and individuals to learn to save lives, according to a Utah EMT.

“Low-cost training makes life-saving first aid, CPR, and AED classes available to more and more people. Immediate response to an incident of sudden injury, or sudden illness such as heart attack or stroke may make the difference between life and death, according to a government report,” explained David Bresnahan, at Utah EMT who teaches first aid, CPR, and AED certification classes (

The major cause of death for all people 44 and under is sudden injury, and the number one cause of death for people over 44 is sudden illness, such as heart attack and stroke, according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control and the Center for Disease Control .

“Being ready for simple injuries or more life-threatening emergencies like severe bleeding, trauma, stopped breathing, stroke, cardiac arrest, choking, or heart attack can drastically increase a victim's chances for survival if one has the knowledge and training for CPR, AED, and first aid,” explained Bresnahan.

According to Bresnahan, a heart attack victim's chance of survival dramatically improves through early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation with the use of an automated external defribillator (AED). To be effective, CPR and an AED must be used in the first few minutes following cardiac arrest, according to the Emergency Care and Safety Institute student manual for Standard First Aid, CPR, and AED sixth Edition.

“Effective bystander CPR and use of an AED provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. In many cases promptly receiving CPR with AED within the first few minutes of a heart attack can make the difference between life and death, and prevent permanent or long term disability,” Bresnahan added.

The goal of CPR and First Aid training is to educate people, not only about the skills required for saving a life, but also in prevention and safety that greatly reduce risks of numerous preventable accidents.

Bresnahan maintains a web site at where detailed information about classes can be found. Companies, groups, and even individuals can host a training class at any location and time that is convenient to those who will attend.

“Hopefully, convenient, short classes for very little cost should mean that many, many more people will become certified than ever before,” said Bresnahan.
