ACT High School CPR
The ACT High School CPR and AED eLearning tool helps teachers empower their students with the theory portion of the ACT High School CPR and AED Program, accommodating virtual, hybrid and in school scenarios.
The ACT High School CPR and AED eLearning tool is divided into learning modules that have engaging videos, animation, imagery and scenarios. Each module was developed based on the established ACT High School CPR and AED Program and is curriculum-aligned for Physical Education and Health teaching.
The tool allows students to learn at their own pace with Recap sections and Knowledge Checks to review what they have learned.
The new ACT High School CPR and AED eLearning tool teaches students the first 3 ‘Rs’ of CPR:
- Risk factors for heart disease and stroke and the importance of a heart healthy lifestyle
- How to Recognize the signs of a heart attack, stroke and other developing emergency
- How to React, including calling 911 quickly.
