CPR and First Aid

Lecture room

Our lecture and training room are spacious, air-conditioned, well lit and ventilated for the best possible educational experience.

Our providers are the best in the country. We are located in six cities over five states, offering the same programs at the same rates. If you need certification for CPR training, just give us a call and inquire about training. We have locations in the following cities, just add the word CPR at the end of the city’s name:

  1. San Francisco
  2. Los Angeles
  3. Honolulu
  4. Las Vegas
  5. Seattle
  6. Oregon

All the courses we offer at our providers are certification courses, meaning that all trainees receive a training credential once they complete the course. We only require students to complete three requirements: (1) complete attendance, (2) passing the pre-test, and (3) passing the post-test or the certification exam. The certificates are valid for two years before they have to be renewed.

Learning a lifesaving skill

Our training providers cannot stress the important of getting training in CPR more. Read what  one of our students had to say about enrolling in a CPR class:

Enrolling in a CPR training course was the best decision of my life. Last week while I was out grocery shopping, a man just dropped unconscious in the aisle. If I hadn’t bee trained, I would’ve probably panicked like everyone else but I didn’t! I got the manager to call for help and managed to get started on CPR before the EMTs arrived. The man’s wife couldn’t thank me enough, and neither could I.

Training programs

Adult and pediatric bag valve masks

When teaching CPR, we teach our students how to use a variety of medical equipment such as bag valve masks or BVMs. These BVMs are used to give rescue breaths to a victim by pushing air into the lungs.

Basic Life Support

  • Basic CPR and AED – A program for the general public that is 4 hours long; teaches students how to give CPR alone
  • Basic CPR and AED C – A program for HCPs that is 4.5 hours long; teaches the same curriculum as the general public program
  • Basic Life Support for HCPs – Runs for 4.5 hours and teaches students how to give one and two-person CPR. They are also taught the 2010 BLS guidelines and basic first aid.

Advanced Life Support

Both ALS programs take two days to complete.

  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – 16 hours long; teaches the students how to medically manage cardiac arrest cases in adults
  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – 14 hours; teaches the students how to medically manage cardiac arrest cases in children. The term pediatric is used to describe people younger than 18 years old but PALS training covers CPR for infants and younger children.

Re-certification

Re-certification is only available for three of our programs.

  • Basic Life Support for HCPs – 4 hours
  • Advanced Cardiac Life Support – 5 to 6 hours
  • Pediatric Advanced Life Support – 6 to 8 hours

Remember to sign up for re-certification before your credential expires; we do not allow students with expired certificates to sign up for re-certification. They have to take the program again if that happens.
