American Safety and Health Institute (“ASHI”) is a leading provider of basic and advanced emergency care and resuscitation training programs. ASHI training programs have been used to teach and certify emergency care providers in health care, business, industry, and the general public since 1996.
ASHI’s training programs are nationally recognized and are endorsed, accepted, approved, or meet the requirements of nearly 1000 state regulatory agencies and occupational licensing boards, including those licensing Emergency Medical Service providers, physicians, pharmacists, dental health professionals, child care providers, law enforcement officers, school teachers, and many others.
ASHI’s resuscitation programs for basic and advanced life support conform to national standards and are based on the same scientific guidelines and treatment recommendations used by the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Red Cross (ARC) for course development. ASHI professional resuscitation programs meet the requirements of the Joint Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Services.
ASHI resuscitation programs are nationally approved by the Continuing Education Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS), and are accepted as equivalent to the AHA and ARC by most state regulatory authorities, the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT), the Department of Homeland Security, United States Coast Guard, and others.
ASHI’s basic first aid, CPR/AED, and advanced resuscitation training programs (ACLS/PALS) require successful completion of a written exam and competent performance of hands-on skills evaluated by an authorized Instructor.
