With AVERT – Active Violence Emergency Response Training - you'll learn how to recognize the signs of danger, react appropriately, and make rapid survival decisions. AVERT goes beyond active shooter response training by also teaching how to control life-threatening bleeding.  This class is provided in a Blended Learning Format only.  You will be issued a unique website link to access the online portion of the training that MUST be completed before attending class.  You MUST ensure you complete the online portion prior to class - the system tracks your progress.  The online portion takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and is a series of videos with a few knowledge checks.  This class is for ages 18 and up.

When violence occurs, seconds count, and you can't always wait for EMS to arrive. AVERT enables you to become an immediate responder by giving you the tools to prepare for potential violence and react quickly in life-threatening situations. After an AVERT training session, you and your team will be able to:

  • Recognize warning signs using situational awareness
  • Decide whether to Escape, Evade, or Attack
  • Apply critical bleeding control techniques
  • Respond quickly and confidently in an emergency
  • Develop an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)

Uncontrolled bleeding is a serious emergency. Blood loss due to trauma is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States. If care is delayed, even by a few minutes, uncontrolled bleeding can quickly become life-threatening.  

When active violence occurs, time is critical to survival. Being able to react quickly and with confidence is vital to saving lives.  All items required for the class will be provided in class.

The way we handle emergencies has changed often over the years and this course will make sure your essential skills are up-to-date with today’s most recent guidelines for care.  This course curriculum was established using guidelines created by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Emergency Care & Safety Institute.  Our Babysitting Preparedness Course covers feeding, diapering, safety in the home, prevention of SIDS, prevention of Shaken Baby Syndrome, basic first aid skills, how to cope with a crying baby, basic pediatric CPR & babysitting as a business.  The course is led by nationally certified instructors who also have experience as emergency responders in both professional and community environments.  This class is most popular among teens but recently we have also had many expecting parents and grandparents take the course so they are well prepared to handle their little ones with proper love and care.  This course is for ages 13 to Adult (13 is suggested by the AAP).  Successful completion of the course will result in a 2-year certificate from the Emergency Care & Safety Institute.  Students must bring a lunch to class. This class is for a Babysitting certificate only and is not a certification for professionals in Daycare, Lifeguarding, Camp Counselors, or those in the medical field; we offer other classes for the professional.  Please call for details.  This very popular course fills up quickly!  See below for state laws and suggestions regarding the age to Babysit.

We can hold private onsite classes for groups of 6 to 18.  If you are interested in this option please email or call us for details.

Connecticut Babysitting Law Summary
No specific law or guideline is on the books in Connecticut, but the state’s Department of Children and Families notes that “experts believe a child should be at least 12 before he is left alone, and at least 15 before he can care for a younger brother or sister. These are the minimum ages. Not every child is ready then.” - 2021

Massachusetts Babysitting Law Summary
Massachusetts doesn't set a specific age at which a child can be left home alone. In the state, such issues are decided on a case-by-case basis. - 2021

New York Babysitting Law Summary
The state of New York has no law or guideline, leaving it up to the parents’/guardians’ discretion and encouraging them to “make intelligent, reasoned decisions regarding these matters.” The Office of Child and Family services notes, “Some children are responsible, intelligent and independent enough to be left alone at 12 or 13 years of age. Likewise, there are some teenagers who are too irresponsible or who have special needs that limit their ability to be safe if they are left alone.” -2021

New Jersey Babysitting Law Summary
In New Jersey, the law does not prescribe a certain age at which a child may be left alone, according to the New Jersey Department of Children and Families. The state believes, “Some children may be capable of being alone for short periods of time (to enable their parent to go to the local market, convenience store, etc.), but should not be alone for long periods of time.” If the State Central Registry (SCR) “receives a report which alleges that a child is home alone at present, the screener will gather information from the reporter to assess whether the child is at risk in the absence of immediate adult supervision, asking questions like, ‘How does the caller know the child is alone?’ and ‘How long has the child been alone?’” -2021

Caregiver Online Support Group presented by The Goldstone Caregiver Center at Danbury Hospital

Being a Caregiver can be incredibly rewarding. It can also be one of the most difficult and isolating times a person can go through. If you are caring for a family member and have ever experienced frustration, sadness, guilt, or anxiety through your caregiving journey, you are not alone. Take the opportunity to meet other caregivers remotely via zoom to share your experiences and learn strategies to reduce your stress. Caregivers may join either the daytime or evening group and these are offered monthly.

Contact Miranda Dold, LCSW by email at Miranda.dold@nuvancehealth.org or 203-739-4921 for more details and for the zoom group meeting information.

This is an appointment for a complimentary car seat check with a certified Safe Kids car seat technician.  Please see what to do and expect below.  You will be asked some key questions at registration so we can be better prepared to assist you.  There is no fee for this service.

Before the Car Seat Checkup

  • Be prepared to learn, not just watch the CPS technician install the car seat. They're trained to teach you.
  • Know your child's current weight and height.
  • Using the car seat instruction manual and the vehicle owner’s manual, try to install the car seat into your vehicle prior to your appointment if possible.  It's okay if it's not correct they will help you fix it!
  • Tip! Check the index of your vehicle owner’s manual for “child safety seats”.
  • Be sure to bring the car seat instruction manual AND the vehicle owner’s manual with you to your appointment if still available.
  • If possible, bring your child with you as well as another caregiver to help while you are learning.
  • Be prepared to learn. The CPS Technician is trained to educate you to install and use your car seat properly in your vehicle
  • You must be 18 years or older to schedule this appointment or have an adult present with you at the time of your appointment
  • Please bring your driver's license.

During the Car Seat Checkup

  • This one-on-one education typically takes 20-30 minutes, depending on your car seat and vehicle. The technician will take all the time you need until you feel comfortable that your car seat is used and installed correctly.
  • During the checkup, a CPS Technician will:
    • Fill out a car seat check form to document the process (including car seat type, location in the vehicle, misuse observations, etc.). The form may be electronic or on paper.
    • Review car seat selection appropriate for your child’s age, weight, and height as well as review factors that affect proper use.  The technician will ensure a proper fit for your child if the child is present.
    • Review the car seat instruction manual and the vehicle owner’s manual to ensure that both are being followed correctly.
    • Ensure that an appropriate seating position in the vehicle is being used.
    • Check the car seat for recalls, visible damage, and expiration date.
    • Guide your installation of the car seat. You are encouraged to ask to learn how to install the car seat in different seating positions with different installation techniques.
    • Discuss the next steps for your child, such as when to move to the next type of car seat.
    • Discuss your state laws and best practice recommendations for occupant safety.
    • Discuss the benefits of everyone riding properly restrained, including all adults.
    • Discuss safety in and around the vehicle.
    • Answer any questions you may have, so ask away.  Ensure you feel confident about installing your seat safely before leaving.

After the Car Seat Checkup

A car seat checkup is considered a success if you can answer yes to the following questions:

  • Did you help perform the installation?
  • Were your questions answered? If not, were you given direction as to who you should contact, or will the CPS Technician follow up with you?

This very brief video training created by AHA allows you to learn Hands-Only CPR in just minutes!  

Hands-Only CPR performed by a bystander has been shown to be as effective as CPR with breaths in the first few minutes of an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest for an adult victim. If you do not know how to administer CPR with breaths, don’t be afraid to act in an emergency; your actions can only help. Any attempt at CPR is better than no attempt. If you see an unconscious, unresponsive adult, call 9-1-1 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the classic disco song “Stayin’ Alive.” This song, and other songs with a rhythm of 100 to 120 beats per minute, mimic the rate you should push on the chest during CPR. The AHA still recommends CPR with compressions and breaths for infants, children, victims of drowning or drug overdose, or people who collapse due to breathing problems.  For those who are trained to give breaths Breaths and Compressions combined are still the best practice for victims of all ages.  

Register for this class and you will get instant access to a brief training video you can watch from nearly anywhere & access to printable FAQ sheets, instruction sheets, and more detailed information on hands-only CPR if interested.  You can feel free to share the information with friends, family, or co-workers!

If for some reason you do not receive a confirmation email with this information please email Wendy.Hennessy@nuvancehealth.org and we will get that information out as soon as possible!

HeartCode PALS is for healthcare professionals seeking an alternative method for completing an initial or renewal PALS Course that reduces in classroom time required and allows more flexibility having pre-course material completed at home at their own schedule.  You MUST successfully complete the online session and the classroom session to obtain certification.  Please either bring a copy of your part 1 certificate of completion of the course with you or you may email it to us at Wendy.Hennessy@Nuvancehealth.org  We will be unable to process your certification if we do not have the online portion of the course on file.  

We are following the recommendations put out by the CDC based on alert level for the county/state.  Please bring a mask to class in case the alert level requires a mask on the day of class.  

**Class end times are approximate so please do not plan anything directly after class.  Class end times are approximate as everyone's individual skill and learning level will vary.  Some may need additional assistance or have additional questions.  

Sports First Aid and Injury Prevention was developed to help coaches, athletic trainers, athletes, and parents of athletes manage the common emergencies they will likely encounter while participating in sports. The course includes coverage of the phases of injury and the injury prevention model, prevention tips for sports-related injuries common to specific sports (such as sprains and concussions), and appropriate treatment for common injuries and illnesses.  The following topics will be covered during the training: Assessment, Bleeding Control, Shock Management, Assessment Illness, and Assessment Injury. Students will practice simulated injuries to gain competency in skills.  This course meets the NYS coaching requirements for 1st Aid.  Successful completion of this course will result in a certification card from the Emergency Care & Safety Institute, a nationally recognized organization.

A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. We’ve all seen it happen too often—on the news or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in serious accidents or disasters. Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to STOP THE BLEED®.  A course developed by the American College of Surgeons.  This class is for those 18 and up.  Anyone under 18 would need to be accompanied by a parent.

The person next to a bleeding victim may very well be the one who’s most likely to save him or her from bleeding to death. By learning how to STOP THE BLEED®, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding once you learn three quick techniques. Take the STOP THE BLEED® training course and become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency happens.

A STOP THE BLEED® course is for people who are interested in learning this lifesaving skill. The American College of Surgeons STOP THE BLEED® campaign has trained over 1 million people including students, teachers, and community groups. We are committed to training anyone who is old enough to understand what the course teaches and is interested in learning how to STOP THE BLEED® and save a life.

Our instructors will teach you live—in person, using training materials specially developed to teach bleeding control techniques. They will not only instruct you, but they will also be available to check your movements as you practice three different bleeding control actions. They will keep working with you until you demonstrate the correct skills to STOP THE BLEED® and save a life.

What stops bleeding? In a STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll learn and practice three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: (1) How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound; (2) How to pack a wound to control bleeding; (3) How to correctly apply a tourniquet. These three techniques will empower you to assist in an emergency and potentially save a life.

We provide this training at no charge to help more people in the community respond to urgent incidents.

We are following current state guidelines for COVID19 at this time which depending on the alert level may require wearing a face mask.  Please bring a mask to class.  

This class is offered free of charge however you do have an option to cover a small portion of course fees at check out which would allow us to offer more classes to more individuals in the community free of charge.  

 **Class end times are approximate so please do not plan anything directly after class.  Class end times are approximate as everyone's individual skill and learning level will vary.  Some may need additional assistance or have additional questions.  

The Wilderness First Aid course will help you prepare for the unexpected. This fast-paced, hands-on training is designed to meet the needs of trip leaders, camp staff, outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, kayakers, hunters, and individuals working in remote locations. It will introduce you to caring for people who become ill or injured far from definitive medical care. Classroom lectures and demonstrations are combined with realistic scenarios where mock patients will challenge you to integrate your learning and practice skills hands-on. You will learn to improvise medical care by creating makeshift items in your environment to assist with immobilization, bleeding control, and other medical emergencies.  At the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills, and ability to make sound decisions in emergency situations while in the Wilderness.  This course is a certification in Wilderness First Aid by the Emergency Care & Safety Institute, a nationally recognized organization. This course will NOT result in a CPR AED Certification card but can be taken in conjunction with our American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR AED Certification Course. This is a 16-hour, 2-day standard level course held from 9 am – 4 pm both days. 

We can hold private onsite classes for groups of 6 to 30.  If you are interested in this option please email or call us for details.

Can I take a renewal or update class if I am expired?
AHA only allows a 45-day grace period to take a renewal (update) class if you have expired but your certification is still expired.  AHA does not extend your certification date.  In addition, if they have made significant recent updates they may eliminate the renewal and update classes as an option during that time.

How big are your classes? 
Class sizes are restricted meaning that prior registration and payment are required. We will NOT accommodate any walk-in students.  Class sizes are kept small at this time between 6-8 students maximum as the space we are using allows following all COVID19 precautions.

Do you do private group training or come on-site to businesses?
Yes!  If you are interested in group training we can conduct onsite classes for groups of 6 or more based on the current state, CDC, and DOH restrictions.  Group size class restrictions may temporarily only allow us to conduct a class size of up to 8 people.  Please email us at:

Wendy.Hennessy@NuvanceHealth.org

All certification courses are valid for a period of 2-years and will expire at the end of the month the class was taken.  For example, if your class was March 5, 2020, you will expire on March 31, 2022.  Non-certification courses recommend an update every year and Bloodborne Pathogens are also required each year.

What is Hands-Only CPR?
Hands-Only CPR is a basic version of CPR that can be performed on ADULTS when someone is not trained in CPR or when a barrier device is not available.  While traditional CPR with compressions and breaths is still a best practice and still must be used for pediatric patients compressions alone have proved beneficial in Adult patient outcomes.  Both compressions and breaths are still recommended for the highest quality care as well as the use of an AED as soon as possible.  See our site for a brief online training!

Who can register for a class?
Anyone is welcome to register for our classes.  Please see the class descriptions and ensure it is the best fit for what you are looking for.  If you are unsure email us and we can help!

Do you offer online classes?
None of the nationally accepted and reputable certification providers (AHA, Red Cross, ECSI, ASHI) offer a fully online certification course for CPR or First Aid.  We are required to follow their requirements and curriculum to certify you so in-person instruction is required.  Never practicing skills with a certified instructor with equipment may increase your liability risk so all our CPR and advanced certifications require in-person instruction as required by AHA.  Blended learning options are available where the bookwork is completed online followed by an in-person skills practice and testing session for some course types.  We may at times offer some fully online training for other non-certification course types as available and directed by the AHA or through other national training organizations.  For example, the 6-hour NYS Insurance Point Reduction Course, Safe Kids Car Seat Basics, and a few others are all completely online.

Did AHA Offer any accommodations because of COVID19?
AHA allowed some course modifications because of COVID19 to increase safety.  AHA did offer a very rare accommodation of a certification extension of 120-days only for those who expired at the peak of COVID19 who may have been unable to find a class.  For those who expired from March 2020 to June 2020, the 120-day extension was available but currently, all extensions have expired.  No further extensions have been announced at this time.  

Why do I not see Babysitting Preparedness, Pet First Aid CPR AED & Disaster Preparedness, or some of your other courses?
Some of our courses are offered seasonally in Spring, Summer & Fall, and may not be held in the winter as we have a low demand.  Please check back regularly for our updated yearly schedule of course offerings.  

Why are classes so long?
We are an official AHA Training Site, all our class time frames are aligned with the AHA curriculum, lesson maps, educational requirements, and agendas.  Some smaller classes may finish a bit more quickly but not by much.  Classes are the designated length meeting the AHA requirement for certification.  The same is true for our ECSI, ASHI, Stop the Bleed, Safe Kids, and Mental Health First Aid classes they set the structure and curriculum requirements that must be followed for certification.

Do you accept donations?
We are a not-for-profit agency.  If you wish to donate to help keep some of our services free of charge, please contact us!

How can I get more involved with the American Heart Association?

Do you rent or sell equipment?
We do not currently rent or sell equipment.  Please see a distributor for your equipment needs.

What is the cancellation policy?
Should we need to cancel a class, change the location, delay or reschedule because of weather, a COVID19 precaution, or other reason we will email you and (if you opt-in) text your cell.  Please register with an email you check often.  We will make every attempt to do this as soon as possible but please check your email in the days leading up to class as well as the morning of for any changes. We will provide options available for rescheduling if needed.  Most of our courses do run as scheduled.  

What is the refund policy?
If you are unable to make it to class we can process a refund (less the cost of books shipped) for fully in-person classes if we have 1 (one) full business day of notice.  For example, if the class is on Saturday morning you need to notify us by Friday morning.  You can notify us via email or phone.  We also have the option to change your class date should you have a last-minute emergency just let us know.  Books mailed are not returnable and are non-refundable.  Online or hybrid courses are also non-refundable.  You may contact us at 845-475-9742 or Wendy.Hennessy@NuvanceHealth.org 

Do you hold instructor trainer classes?
We do hold AHA instructor certification classes for BLS, ACLS & PALS.  You must be certified as an AHA provider first.  We offer these classes 1-4 times per year based on demand.  We typically offer them in Spring & Fall so check back on the site for offerings then.  Taking this course will not make you an employee.  Anyone taking the class is considered an independent instructor and must purchase their own supplies and equipment as well as will set their own prices.  This can be a significant investment as the AHA can make unannounced price changes at any time and update the materials and curriculum at a minimum of every 5 years.  We can also hold instructor classes on-site for groups of 4 or more.  AHA will require you to be monitored regularly for compliance by your AHA Training Center (Nuvance).  AHA requires you to teach a specified minimum number of classes each year and be evaluated by your AHA training center prior to expiring to renew.  If you do not meet both requirements you will not be permitted to renew and will need to take the entire class over.  Any other instructor classes like Stop the Bleed, ECSI, ASHI, or Mental health First Aid we do not provide the training and our TC covers direct staff only.  You can visit the websites of these organizations to find out how to become an instructor.  www.stopthebleed.org   https://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/become-an-instructor/  
We do occasionally offer child safety seat technician Courses and update courses that utilize the Safe Kids curriculum.

Are you an authorized training center?
Yes. We are an authorized training center for the American Heart Association, Emergency Care & Safety Institute, and the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI).  All instructors have a fully active and current instructor certification for any discipline they are teaching.  All car seat technicians are certified by Safe Kids and follow a curriculum approved by NHTSA.

Do you work with corporations and small businesses?

Yes!  We offer a variety of corporate training options both on-site or at one of our locations where we can offer BLS, ACLS, PALS, CPR, First Aid, Defensive Driving, or any of our other course topics.  In addition, we offer on-site training for small businesses in BLS, ACLS, PALS, CPR, First Aid, Defensive Driving, or any of the other courses we offer.  We can also collaborate with existing educational institutions to offer our classes through your existing educational platform at your various locations.  Courses provided onsite do have a fee please contact us for details on prices and how to schedule an on-site training or certification at wendy.hennessy@nuvancehealth.org 

Do you work with schools, non-profits, and youth groups like scouts or youth sports?

Yes!  We work with many school districts to assist with CPR in Schools Programs, training staff in CPR, First Aid, Hands-Only CPR, AED training, and Sports First Aid & Injury Preparedness for Coaches.  We also participate in health fairs and provide other specialized classes and services such as Stop the Bleed Training, Car Seat Safety Car Seat distribution & fitting, Bike Safety, Bike rodeos, Bike helmet fitting & distribution, and many other topics.  We work with many scout groups to provide Wilderness First Aid Training, Babysitting classes, CPR & AED Training, and other courses.  We provide training in youth sports for CPR, AED, First Aid, and Sports First Aid & Injury Prevention.  We work with many non-profits as well to provide a wide variety of training options.  Some course options may have a fee depending on the option selected.  Please contact us for further information at Wendy.Hennessy@NuvanceHealth.org
