CPR training is one of the most important things a person learns how to do. There is a misconception that only people who have medical careers should know how to give CPR. However, with about 300,000 people experiencing out-hospital-cardiac arrests and the first responders being bystanders, it is extremely beneficial to know how to give compressions and ventilation. Defibrillation is a skill we include in our training programs, for more advanced trainees who want to learn how to operate an AED.

Cardiac arrest and its statistics
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), out of the 300,000 people who get heart attacks out of the hospital, about 92 percent die. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrests is “the cessation of of cardiac mechanical activity”, or in simple the terms, when the heart stops beating completely. CPR is the only way to get the heart beating again, through the use of compressions, ventilation, and defibrillation. In advanced medical management, health care providers can use medication and equipment to help the process.
At our providers, you will learn all these skills depending on the certification program you decide to take. Certificates are valid for two years (24 months) before you need to renew them. We also offer re-certification for trainees with nearly expired credentials. Enroll today!
