CPR and first aid training is the most popular course our providers offer. We have a variety of CPR courses available, from basic to advanced training, available through the week at very affordable rates. Among all six of our training locations, the same CPR courses are offered at the same rates, with varying schedules. In order to provide the best possible learning experience for our students, we tailor our schedules according to their needs.
Las Vegas CPR is one of our many training locations that offer high quality training. We have five training courses and three re-certification programs offered through the week.
CPR training for the public
A thought has been perpetuated that only people who work in health care should have knowledge regarding basic CPR. This is not true. Laypersons – meaning people who don’t work in health care – should be able to give at least chest compressions-only CPR. Chest compressions alone have been proven to improve victim outcomes by twice, compared to no CPR being given at all.
Our basic CPR program for the public teaches core skills in CPR: compression, ventilation, and defibrillation. The first two are the most commonly used in bystander CPR, with the last performed if an AED (automated external defibrillator) is available.
CPR training for HCPs
Health care providers have a responsibility knowing how to give both basic and advanced CPR. We have basic courses and advanced courses for HCPs in all our training providers. There are two basic courses for HCPs: Heartsaver C and Basic Life Support for HCPs. Advanced courses are called Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) respectively.
Basic courses for HCPs have the same curriculum as the course for the public but tailor the lessons for people who know medical terms and concepts. Advanced courses on the other hand focus on medical management skills – that means medicine administration, diagnostic examinations, and many more. Because medical management can only be performed by professionals, our advanced courses can only be enrolled in by health professionals.

Once you finish the program with complete attendance and a pass on the certification exam, we will award you with a training credential for the program you finished. The certificate expires after two years but can be renewed before it expires. We do not accept rescuers with expired certificates for renewal. Out of the programs listed above, only three have available re-certification classes: Basic Life Support for HCPs, ACLS, and PALS courses.
