About ASHI

Northwest Health and Safety Inc. has selected ASHI as the preferred source of training materials and certifications. The American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) is a leading provider of basic and advanced emergency care and resuscitation training programs throughout the world. ASHI training programs have been used to teach and certify emergency care providers in health care, business, industry and the general public. Our instructors have taught all other programs in the past: American Heart Association, American Red Cross, Medic First Aid and National Safety Council. We have found ASHI programs to be equivalent or better in overall structure and materials.

A wide variety of organizations have been approved as ASHI Training Centers, including: local emergency medical service, fire/rescue and law enforcement agencies, hospitals, universities, community colleges, municipal, state, and federal governments as well as public and private corporations and training companies.

Program Approval

ASHI’s training programs are nationally recognized and are endorsed, accepted, approved, or meet the requirements of nearly 1,000 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.
