Free CPR Classes
We want everyone to learn CPR, which is why we offer all of our classes for free. It’s important for everyone to know how to save a live. In addition to free CPR classes online, we also offer free assistance to anyone looking to learn CPR. Have a question? Ask one of our instuctors.
Are you ready to save a life?
If someone had a heart attack would you know what to do? The time to learn life-saving skills is not at the time of an emergency. When someone is having a heart attack, seconds count. It’s also important to act quickly for stroke victims. Knowing what to do can make the difference between life and death.
Learn to save a life
Anyone can learn CPR and First Aid. Even if you are physically unable to perform CPR, you can still help save a life. Performing CPR can be exhausting. But effective life-saving techniques include many factors. These factors are what make up the Chain of Survival which is also covered in our Free CPR class.
We offer classes in CPR, AED, BLS, First Aid as well as Bloodborne Pathogens. All classes are compliant with American Heart, ECC and OSHA. Take one of our classes or take them all. We update our classes regularly. All of our classes inlcude the latest updates.
Compression only CPR
We strongly recommend using PPE or Personal Protective Equipment to protect yourself. However, sometimes emergencies happen when you’re not prepared. Perform Compression-Only CPR when you do not have a bag valve mask or protective equipment. A victim in cardiac arrest will generally have 4-6 minutes of oxygen in their blood. Press on the victim’s chest hard and fast to supply oxygenated blood to the victim’s essential organs. On an adult, compressions should be 2-2.5 inches in depth. You should also perform the compressions at a rate of around 100 per minute. Most 9-1-1 operators are trained to instruct callers on how to perform compression-only CPR. For more information, go to Compression Only CPR.
