With the influx of healthcare students, providers, professionals, and even lay people looking for CPR training, a lot of providers can be found all over the country with cheap courses. However, cheap doesn’t necessarily equate with quality. With our training programs, you don’t have to worry about the quality of training you will receive from our instructors. We use the latest guidelines to plan our curricula and have up-to-date training equipment. You won’t find a better learning experience with other providers.
We award CPR certificates to all trainees who complete their requirements and pass the certification exam given at the end of training. CPR certificates are only valid for 2 years then they have to be renewed. You can sign up for one of our re-certification programs to renew your certificate.
Please remember to renew your certificate before it expires. We do not allow rescuers with expired credentials to sign up for re-certification training.
Recognition for the need for CPR
For every minute that a person collapses after experiencing cardiac arrest, the rates of survival drops by 10 percent. One of the best skills to use in addressing these situations is to recognize the early warning signs of cardiac arrest. Early warning signs of cardiorespiratory arrest include:
- Threatened airway
- Altered pulse, respiration, blood pressure, urine output
- Altered levels of consciousness, blood glucose
- Hemorrhage, rashes, swelling, sores
These signs and symptoms involve the five letters: Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, and Exposure. Recognizing an approaching cardiac arrest is part of the CPR training programs we offer our trainees.
Our training programs
Our CPR training classes all give trainees certificates once they finish. We have a total of three basic programs (Basic Life Support) and two advanced programs (Advanced Life Support). Program length varies between 4 and 16 hours. BLS programs are much shorter, with an average of 4 hours. ALS programs are much longer, taking two days to complete.
- Basic Heartsaver training – There are two basic programs, for (1) the general public and (2) healthcare providers. The curricula of both programs have the same topics but the lessons are tailored for the trainees, either lay people or people in healthcare.
- Basic Life Support training – This is only for HCPs, training students to give one and two-person CPR. The 2010 guidelines for Basic Life Support are also part of BLS training.
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – An ALS program for HCPs that teaches how to give medical management to adult victims.
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – An ALS program for HCPs that teaches how to give medical management to pediatric victims.
Signing up for training is quite easy. There is an online application form on the provider website that can be used at any time during the day. E-mails can also be sent with your personal details and details regarding the class you want to take. If you plan on signing up in person or over the telephone, please make sure to conduct your business during regular operating hours.
