Where should you sit your CPR training? The answer to this question depends on why you want to learn cardiac pulmonary resuscitation. If you need certification for a job then you should look to take the classes offered by either the Red Cross or the American Heart Association. Both will require you to attend a physical class so that you can practice your skills and be assessed by a qualified instructor.
Do you need a formal certificate?
If you just want to know CPR but do not need a formal certificate then you could take the American Heart Association online CPR course without leaving your home. This course will teach you everything you need to know and you can log on and refresh your knowledge whenever you feel like it.
Are you living in NYC?
If you are based in New York City and willing to use your newly gained knowledge to teach other people, the NYC CPR classes are worth looking into. These classes are free and the New York City fire crew will come to a venue near you. They won’t give individual training; you will have to arrange for at least six people to take the training with you. In order to try to make sure everyone gets some personal attention the fire crew would prefer that there are no more than 20 people taking any one course. They are more than happy to come out a second, third or fourth time to teach more people if there is sufficient demand.
