Who needs CPR training?

Many professions need employees to complete a CPR certification course as a requirement for the job as well as certain regulatory mandates. Of course, the medical field often requires both caregivers and often non-medical employees to have CPR certification.

Doctors, nurses and laboratory technicians may be called upon to perform CPR during the course of their duties. HR personnel, secretaries and other non-medical employees may seldom need the skills but may be required to take certification courses in order to work in the hospital.

Other professions that must maintain CPR skills include:

  • Police
  • Firefighters
  • EMTs and other first responders
  • Dental technicians
  • Personal trainers
  • Flight attendants
  • Jail and prison personnel
  • Lifeguards, etc.

In fact, today most states require public school teachers and day care workers to maintain CPR certification so if a student or teacher is injured, staff members can respond until medical help arrives.

Is there an age requirement? - Image related to CPR Training

Is there an age requirement?

There is no age requirement or skills requirement. Anyone can learn basic CPR as long as they can physically perform the skills needed.

The American Heart Association does not mandate a minimum age requirement for learning CPR. The ability to learn and perform CPR is based more on body strength than age. Studies have shown that children as young as nine years old can learn and retain CPR skills.

How long will my certification last?

When you complete your training you will receive your course completion card immediately upon course completion. Cards are issued and certified by the American Heart Association and are valid for 2 years through the end of the month in which the card was issued.

At the end of the 2-year period, you will need to renew your card by taking another class. The best course of action is to contact us before your card expires and we can give you information about class availability and cost. We always recommend taking the traditional course to receive your first card, but we offer online training that is perfect for re-certification. You can take the coursework online and simply schedule a time to come to our training center for a brief basic skills refresher course.

What are some situations where CPR training can save someone’s life?

    You may have noticed the AED machines that are positioned behind glass at some restaurants and arenas. Those are put in place in case someone requires a jolt of electricity once their heart stops. While the AED—or automated external defibrillator—is certainly a lifesaving tool, taking CPR training is just as vital. Knowing what to do in scenarios where a person stops breathing could mean the difference between them living or dying.

    There are a few different situations where your CPR training will pay off should the unthinkable happen.

    At Home

    Most cardiac episodes happen at home. Most worrying is the fact that victims rarely show any sign that they are about to enter into cardiac arrest. If you take proper CPR training, you can react quickly and provide help when it’s needed the most.

    At Work

    Perhaps you were the lucky individual who got to attend the CPR training workshop in your office last year, thinking that you may never use it. Just like at home, there are rarely signs of impending cardiac trouble, so knowing what to do is crucial should the situation arise.

    At the Gym

    With so many people pushing to better themselves physically, it’s not very surprising that cardiac arrest is fairly common at the gym. Someone working their body to its limit—or beyond its limit—could shock their cardio vascular system and cause them to collapse. Those with proper CPR training can step in and help.


    Life situations when people experience cardiac problems, at home or in public, occur all the time . If you want to be useful in these situations then be sure to arm yourself with the necessary knowledge from a CPR training session. Your assistance could make the difference between life and death.
