Why should I take a CPR class?
80 percent of cardiac arrests occur while the patient is at home. This means that you are more likely to use your CPR skills to help someone close to you than assisting a stranger. We cannot control everything that happens to our loved ones, but we can do everything possible to be ready to help in case an emergency occurs.
Why do I have to take a class for a renewal?
As part of AHA protocol, BLS and CPR AED certification is valid for two years. Every two years, you will need to renew your BLS certification to remain actively certified. Renewal classes allow you to be updated on new protocols, practice skills of resuscitation so you are ready in time of a crisis.
