Understanding CPR Certification
CPR is also known as cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a life-saving technique that has helped to save hundreds of lives. CPR restores the circulation of oxygen-rich blood to the brain in accidents such as near-drowning, smoke inhalation, suffocation, electrocution injuries, poisoning, and suspected sudden infant death. Taking a course to obtain your CPR certification is something that most people should do especially if you work or volunteer around children and the elderly. Permanent brain damage or death can occur in as little as eight minutes without oxygen to the brain, so as you can see CPR is a very important skill to have that can save a life.
Taking a CPR certification course will give you the know-how to help you respond confidently in an emergency situation. No matter what age you are you can take the course. Often times the course is paired with a First Aid course or Automated External Defibrillator (AED) course. Classes can be taken at your local school facility, or if you are in a large group many instructors can come to your location.
What is Remote Skill Verification (RSV)
We have also partnered with the Health and Safety Institute (HSI) to offer Remote Skills Verification (RSV) certification in this time of COVID-19. For those not ready for in-person...
For more information on RSV see the two short videos below and reference the three ways you can complete your training and certification with RSV below.
With RSV there are three options for certification
Students that are local and desire the in-person verification of skills, upon completion of the online portion of the training will set up a time for in-person verification at an agreed-upon location.
For students that prefer not to meet in person, we set up a date and time for the skill verification online, where the instructor can verify the skill via an online session. The student, upon completion of the online session, will request to have a manikin and training materials shipped to their location, and upon completion of the RSV session with the instructor will be required to return the manikin and upon shipping the certification certificate will be sent via email to the student or
The student can choose to purchase the mannequin to keep for future training and with this option as soon as the RSV session with the instructor has been completed will receive certification via email.
