Who needs to know how to do CPR?
Everybody should know the basics of first aid, which includes CPR training.
Is there a minimum age to learn CPR?
There are no minimum age requirement to learn CPR. The child's physical strength to perform CPR is more important than their age. A child who has the physical ability and is able to retain the skills they have learned may benefit from the training. If you aren't sure if your child should take a CPR class, give us a call to discuss further.
What action should you take when someone is not responding?
If a person has no signs of life, you should call 911 and begin chest compressions.
Is BLS (Basic Life Support) the same as CPR?
Basic Life Support, or BLS, contains the same basic components as a standard CPR course, except that it is designed for healthcare providers. BLS provides more in-depth training and focuses on a team approach, whereas CPR focuses on the essential techniques as a single rescuer.
Is a valid CPR card required in order to perform CPR?
Although formal CPR training is preferred, it isn't strictly necessary in order to perform CPR. However, attending a formal CPR class will provide you with knowledge, instruction, and practice on how to administer effective patient care during an emergency situation.
If First-Aid included with CPR classes?
While we do offer an option for combined CPR & First-Aid classes, First-Aid is not inherently part of a CPR course.
Will I receive a physical card when I complete the course?
Physical cards are no longer printed. Upon completion of any of our courses, you will receive your eCard by email. The eCard is in PDF format, allowing you to print or email as needed. eCards are typically emailed on the same day you complete your course.
How long are courses good for?
A refresher or renewal course is recommended every two years for most of our courses. If you are required to take a course for your job or organization, make sure you check their requirements for how often you should take a refresher course.
