The leading cause of death for people over the age of 44 is cardiovascular disease. A poor lifestyle or unhealthy living habits can drastically increase the chances of cardiovascular disease. People that succumb to cardiovascular disease likely do so through cardiac arrest. When the heart enters cardiac arrest the moments directly afterward are when CPR Training programs can make the difference between life or death. By taking a CPR course you significantly increase the chances of survival for people in cardiac arrest.
Basic and Advanced CPR
workplace approved and American Heart Association are world leaders in first aid and CPR training. Canadian and American CPR standards are set by a large, international committee called the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). This committee is the world leader in statistics and research in CPR. Approximately every 5 years workplace approved adjusts its CPR program to the recommendations given by ILCOR. Candidates that register for CPR courses through our training partners will receive the most up-to-date CPR training available.
Different Levels of CPR Training
workplace approved has divided its CPR programs into a number of levels. It defines these levels through a letter of the alphabet. CPR level “A” is the lowest level and CPR level “C” for health care providers, also known as CPR “HCP” is the highest level of CPR training. The higher levels encompass all of the CPR content of the lower levels and add additional information and training. All CPR training includes training and certification in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). The following is a list of the different CPR level’s offered through workplace approved:
- CPR level “A” – This is the most basic CPR level that takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete. It teaches candidates CPR skills and techniques for adult and child victims.
- CPR level “B” – This is an obsolete CPR level that was designed to teach candidates CPR techniques for adult and child victims. However, with the growing similarity in CPR for adult and child victims, it has been made almost obsolete. CPR level “B” training can only be taken with a child care first aid course.
- CPR level “C” – This workplace-approved CPR course is the most popular CPR level offered. It teaches CPR techniques to victims of all ages.
- CPR level “C” for health care providers, also known as CPR “HCP” – This workplace-approved CPR course teaches candidates CPR rescues for victims of all ages with more advanced equipment and trained assistance.
