CPR certification is an important part of any health and safety training program. It is a requirement for many jobs and is a valuable skill to have in case of an emergency. CPR stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and is a life-saving technique used to restore a person’s normal breathing and circulation when they are in cardiac arrest. It is a combination of chest compressions and rescue breaths that are used to restore a normal heartbeat and breathing.
A CPR certification is typically obtained through an accredited health and safety training program, such as those offered by HRTBT. These programs are designed to provide the necessary education and practical experience to become certified in CPR. The certification is valid for two years, after which a refresher course is required to keep it valid.
HRTBT offers a wide range of CPR courses, from basic to advanced. The basic course covers the fundamentals of CPR, such as how to recognize when someone is in cardiac arrest, how to properly perform chest compressions and rescue breaths, and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). The advanced course covers more advanced topics, such as CPR for infants, children, and adults, as well as how to use an AED.
When undertaking a CPR certification, it is important to ensure that the course is accredited. HRTBT is an accredited provider of CPR training, and all of our courses are recognized by the American Heart Association. This means that the certification is accepted by employers and health facilities throughout the United States.
Completing a CPR certification course is a worthwhile investment for anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency situation. It is important to ensure that the course is completed correctly, as any mistakes made during the course could cost someone their life. That is why HRTBT’s CPR courses are designed to give participants the knowledge and confidence they need to perform CPR correctly and effectively. Sign up today!
