Health & Safety Training

At ASU-Beebe, we strive provide standard health and industrial safety training for a broad range of workplace requirements. Our hands-on, direct engagement approach ensures satisfaction that the topic is covered thoroughly to improve worker safety. Our standard instructional formats currently include classroom lectures, audio-visual presentations, simulations, and practical assessments when applicable. The course descriptions below will provide a general summary of what is taught for each of the listed training events on our calendar.


Title Description Hours
Heartsaver First Aid/CPR The Heartsaver First Aid course trains participants first aid basics for the most common first aid emergencies, including how to recognize them, how to call for help, and how to perform lifesaving skills. Reflects science and education from the American Heart Association Guidelines Update for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) and the 2015 AHA/Red Cross Guidelines for First Aid. 6
CPR (BLS) Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency medical procedure for a victim of cardiac arrest, or in some circumstances, respiratory arrest. Its purpose is to maintain a flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and the heart, thereby delaying tissue death and extending the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage.  3
(Hybrid Course)
The non-credit RN to EMT course is designed for licensed healthcare professionals that plan to work in helicopter-based EMS services. This course prepares the participant to provide prehospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries. Areas of study include introduction to emergency medical services systems, roles and responsibilities of Emergency Medical Technicians, anatomy and physiology, medical emergencies, trauma, special considerations for working in the prehospital setting, and providing patient transportation.  The course consists of an online component (46 hours) and an in-class component (24 hours). All online components must be successfully completed for the instructor to approve participation in the 24 hour in class component.  70
Forklift Safety Many of the manufacturing partners that we assist in our area have positions available that require forklift experience. This course teaches the basic skills of operating a forklift through classroom instruction and by operating a forklift to determine practical understanding of the content taught during the class. There is a heavy emphasis on safety topics to promote responsible driving that can be applied in any situation. Some of the topics include a forklift equipment check, proper use of lifts, notifying pedestrians of your presence and how to properly assess weight distribution for loading elevated shelves. 4
OSHA 10-General Industry OSHA-authorized courses are designed to teach workplace safety and reduce job site hazards. ASU-Beebe offers this 10-hour training course as a convenient way for workers to learn about hazard avoidance, workers' rights, filing an OSHA complaint and more.
