List of CPR training programs at Seattle CPR
When you visit a training provider, you will notice that programs are typically divided into two main categories: Basic and Advanced Life Support. These categories are concepts created by the AHA to act as guidelines when laypersons and healthcare providers give cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Basic Life Support is the used in all our program curricula. Even advanced courses are based on the BLS guidelines. When a trainee learns how to give basic CPR, the focus is on skill building – particularly skills in giving chest compressions, rescue breaths, and defibrillation. The Advanced Life Support courses for healthcare providers simply add medical management to basic CPR training.
- Basic CPR/AED – 4 hours, general public
- Basic CPR/AED C – 4.5 hours, healthcare providers
- Basic Life Support for HCPs – 4.5 hours
- Basic Life Support for HCPs re-certification – 4 hours
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support – 16 hours, HCPs
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support re-certification – 5 to 6 hours
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support – 14 hours
- Pediatric advanced Life Support re-certification – 6 to 8 hours
The basic curriculum teaches trainees the following CPR topics and techniques:
- Chest compressions (for adults and children)
- Automated external defibrillation
- Rescue breaths (advanced airways and mouth-to-mouth)
- Bag valve masks, barrier devices, oxygen support devices
- Electrocardiography and other diagnostic examinations
- Medication administration
CPR training credentials are valid for two years before they need to be renewed through a re-certification program. Re-certification programs are courses for rescuers with training credentials that are nearing expiry, not expired credentials. We do not allow rescuers with expired certification to enroll in re-certification.
Re-certification is only available for three of our courses: Basic Life Support for HCPs, ACLS, and PALS training.

When my employers asked me for a basic CPR certificate, I didn’t know where to train at first. But with enough research, I found Seattle CPR online with dozens of positive testimonials on their training. It was an amazing educational experience! The trainers were friendly and very knowledgeable, and willing to help me whenever I had trouble understanding a few topics. Being a person who doesn’t work in healthcare, I can say that I learned how to correctly give CPR through training at Seattle CPR.
