Your CPR and First Aid Training questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do CPR classes cost?

CPR classes cost $15 to $55 for Basic CPR with AED certification. More advanced courses or those including First Aid training cost more. Basic CPR teaches recognizing and treating first aid, breathing, and heart emergencies in all age groups.

CPR involves chest compressions to maintain blood flow and oxygenation during cardiac arrest, preventing organ damage until the heart restarts. AED training teaches you to use the portable AED devices found in schools, gyms, stores, malls, airports, and offices. These devices use an electric shock to restore normal heart rhythm.

Are CPR classes free?

Certain CPR classes are available for free, such as those conducted at community centers, fire departments, or online platforms like the National CPR Foundation. Periodically, the American Red Cross and American Heart Association organize special events offering no-cost CPR training.

How long is a CPR class?

A Basic CPR certification class typically spans 2 to 4 hours. Combined CPR and First Aid training sessions range from 4 to 8 hours. Online CPR courses, excluding skills practice, usually take 4 hours; however, additional in-person skills assessment may be necessary for employment validation.

Where can I take a CPR class?

You have several options for learning CPR. Non-profit organizations like the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association offer CPR classes, both in-person and online. Additionally, many private companies provide online CPR courses.

When using a private company, confirm that they are authorized by the American Heart Association (AHA) or the American Health Safety Institute (AHSI) for proper certification.

Can you take a CPR class online?

Online CPR classes are available from organizations like the American Red Cross and the National CPR Foundation. These courses provide a convenient and flexible way to gain CPR knowledge, but do not offer hands-on skills sessions.

How long do CPR certifications last?

CPR certifications typically last for 2 years. To stay proficient and ensure you can perform CPR effectively, it's recommended to renew your certification every two years, even if your skills feel sharp.

What questions should I ask a CPR instructor?

Here are some questions you can ask your CPR instructor to get the most out of your training:

  • Can you confirm you're up to date on the latest CPR guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA)?
  • How do you typically structure your CPR classes?
  • What's the usual number of students in each class?
  • Do you have experience teaching CPR in a group setting?
  • Do you provide course materials in addition to hands-on practice?
  • Will we be using manikins with feedback mechanisms to simulate real-life scenarios?
  • When will I receive my CPR certification card? Is it issued on the day of the class or mailed later?

How do I choose a CPR class?

To get the most from your CPR training, follow these suggestions:

  • Choose a class that fits your needs. Whether you need CPR for work, childcare, or personal preparedness, there's a course for you.
  • Hands-on practice with advanced manikins is crucial. Look for classes that provide realistic feedback on your compressions and breaths.
  • Ensure your training covers the latest CPR guidelines for adults, children, and infants.
  • Choose a class that awards a course completion card or digital certificate that meets your workplace requirements.
  • Pick the learning method that works best for you: In-person classes with instructors, online self-paced modules, or a blended approach combining both.
  • Find a course that fits your budget, location, and schedule.
