CPR of America was established in 2014 with a mission to train and equip as many people as possible with the life-saving principles of American Heart Association ACLS, BLS, First Aid, and CPR. Studies have shown that someone suffers from cardiac arrest, administering CPR doubles or triples the victim’s chances of survival. By extension, we believe we are in the business of saving lives.
After launching our first location in Massachusetts, we have since expanded to six locations throughout New York and Massachusetts, and we continue to grow. All of our instructors are certified by the American Heart Association, they have a minimum of four years of teaching experience, and they take a personable approach to teaching CPR skills to students from all walks of life.
Training Courses for Every Skill Level
From dental offices, daycares, law offices, restaurants, large corporations to medical schools to Girl Scout troops, we have designed a set of CPR training programs to meet every need and skill level:
- Friends and Family - Perfect for parents, babysitters, community groups and others without prior medical experience, this non-certification course teaches the basics of CPR for adults, children and infants, as well as AED and airway obstruction relief.
- Heartsaver- First Aid and CPR- This course is designed for non-medical professionals who need certification in CPR and life-saving techniques (e.g., to meet OSHA or workplace requirements). This class is great employees at daycares, restaurants, community centers, construction workers, and warehouse employees. Students will learn American Heart Association CPR techniques, First Aid guidelines, and AED usage for victims of all ages.
- Basic Life Support (BLS) - Designed for healthcare providers, this course provides certification training in a full range of resuscitation procedures, including CPR, AED, airway obstruction, stroke training and more.
- Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) - Our most advanced training course, the American Heart Association ACLS course builds on the skills learned in our BLS course to give healthcare providers the most extensive life-saving training available.
There is a $40 rescheduling fee for courses and $45 cancelation fee. Students who need to retake the course will be charged $40. Please note there will be no refunds awarded to cancelations made over 1 hour from when you pay for the class.
