Seattle CPR is located in Seattle, Washington, one of the busiest cities in the country. Found in King County, Seattle CPR has a eight programs available all through the week. You can find a list of all the programs on our website. Trainees looking for certification can enrol in any of our programs and receive their credentials once the program is completed.
CPR training certificates
Our credentials are only valid for 24 months. They can be renewed through a re-certification class, programs we also offer in conjunction with our training courses. Out of five training courses, we give re-certification for three of them. If your certification is approaching expiration, you can sign up for a re-certification program to renew it. However, if you let your certificate expire, you cannot qualify for renewal; you have to take the complete training program again.
Training programs in CPR
We have the most varied selection of training courses in Seattle. Our Seattle CPR programs are categorized into basic and advanced training. We have one class for the general public and the rest are for healthcare providers. Basic Life Support The concept of Basic Life Support is focused on the the lifesaving skills needed to restart the heart and restore circulation of blood in the body. During cardiac arrest, the heart stops beating, causing blood to stop flowing. This is very dangerous for all of the body’s major organs, especially the brain. Brain tissue starts to die if it doesn’t receive any oxygen within five to ten minutes.
- Heartsaver program (general public) – 4 hours long; teaches one-person CPR, AED, and first aid
- Heartsaver program C (healthcare providers) – 4.5 hours long; teaches the same curriculum as the Heartsaver program but tailored towards HCPs
- Basic Life Support for HCPs – 4.5 hours long; teaches one-person and two-person CPR, AED, and first aid
Advanced Life Support
We have two Advanced Life Support programs, one for the management of adults and the other for children. Unlike BLS programs that teach basics, advanced courses teach medical management of cardiac arrest. This is why all of our ALS programs are only for healthcare providers, or allied health students. Medical management includes the use of medication and diagnostic examinations to completely manage a patient experiencing cardiac arrest.
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – ACLS programs teach students about medical management of adults. The program takes two days and is 16 hours long.
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – PALS curriculum has the same structure as the ACLS program but focuses on three groups of children: infants, toddlers, and older children.
We give re-certification for both of our ALS programs and the Basic Life Support for HCPs training program.
- Basic Life Support for HCPs – 4 hours
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support – 5 to 6 hours
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support – 6 hours and 20 minutes / 8 hours and 20 minutes
