American CPR Courses

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a lifesaving skill that can be learned through a training course in CPR and first aid. We have training providers all over the United States, offering eight training programs for CPR. Because we want our courses to be widely available to students, we keep our training fees very affordable without compromising the quality of our curricula. For students who need training, certification, or both, you can visit our location webpages and see what programs we have on offer. The websites also have our complete contact details, an online application form, and a list of course details for interested students and trainers.

Locations: Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland

CPR classes: basic, advanced, re-certification

Learn first aid and CPR to manage circulatory emergencies

Learn first aid and CPR to manage circulatory emergencies such as cardiac arrest and severe arrhythmias. We also include first aid skill training in all our programs.

Training courses are typically divided into basic and advanced CPR. Basic CPR uses the 2010 Basic Life Support guidelines (American Heart Association) in its curriculum, focused on the core skills used in CPR. On the other hand, advanced courses use the Advanced Life Support guidelines (American Heart Association). The focus of advanced training becomes medical management instead of basic skills.

Basic CPR

  1. Basic Life Support for health care providers (HCPs) – Basic skill training on compressions, ventilation, and defibrillation, introduction to the 2010 BLS guidelines, and one and two-person CPR rescue
  2. Basic Heartsaver – Basic skill training on core CPR techniques for the public (lay persons) and one-person CPR rescue
  3. Basic Heartsaver C – Basic skill training on core CPR techniques for health care providers and one-person CPR rescue

Advanced CPR

  1. Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – Advanced CPR training and medical management of pediatric patients
  2. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – Advanced CPR training and medical management of adult patients

Heart disease in the US

All over the world, heart disease is responsible for millions of deaths, making it the number one cause of mortality in almost every country. In the US alone, it kills about 600,000 people each year. That means 1 in every 4 deaths is caused by a heart problem. Coronary artery disease specifically kills over 380,000 Americans annually.

What is CAD?

CAD is the most common type of heart problem that afflicts the American population. It is characterized by fatty deposits in the arteries that supply the heart with blood (also called coronary arteries). When a person has too much fat and cholesterol in their diet, they can block vessels in different part of the body. These fatty deposits are called plaque, which can increase in size as more fat and inflammatory cells stick to the original plaque.

Training credentials

All of the courses we offer at our providers award trainees with certificates once the course had been completed. Certificates must be renewed before the 2-year validity is up, or else the student won’t be able to sign up for a re-certification class. Re-certification classes are much shorter than the training program, usually lasting between 4 and 8 hours long.

Re-certification is offered for three of our courses: Basic Life Support for HCPs, ACLS, and PALS training.
