Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Advanced External Defibrillators for non-medical persons

Approximately 300,000 people a year experience a cardiac arrest (their heart stops and they quit breathing) outside of the hospital in the United States. If no one performs CPR in the first 10 minutes the chance that the person will survive drops to near zero.

Who do you spend most of your time with? Are you most often with family members, coworkers, and friends? These are the people that you will most likely have the opportunity to save. Do you want to be prepared to save a life when the opportunity presents itself? Just a couple of hours of your time could make the difference between life and death for your family, coworker or friend.

Our Basic Life Support Course will give you all of the information you need to be prepared to administer CPR when someone’s heart stops. Our class is thorough, yet non-threatening. It will teach you to recognize when someone is in cardiac arrest, how to begin compressions and provide ventilations. Your intervention can make the difference between survival and certain death. Arm yourself with lifesaving knowledge with our Basic Life Support Course today.

This course covers adult, child, and infant CPR.

We proudly sell our Pacific Medical Training branded CPR training materials under contract to the U.S. Army.

Skill testing

See our CPR skills form here.

This form is completed by our instructor, the students’ company’s instructor or a third party instructor we connect the student with. In all cases, the instructor will be holding current and valid CPR instructor credentials.

The student will receive hand-written documentation of the completed skills check and a copy of the instructor’s card. The student will provide this documentation directly to their company’s credentialing department.

This skills check documentation process is significantly more stringent than American Heart Association, Red Cross and all our other competitors.
