​​CPR and First Aid training is more important that ever! Many of our students require this training for continued employment, many work in the healthcare industry and must stay up-to-date. Additionally, as preparation for the potential burden on the healthcare system, people must be prepared and ready to Save A Life with CPR!

Nation's Best CPR follows the CDC guidelines as well as directives produced by American Red Cross and American Heart Association. Please know that we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and implementing relative measures to assure that classes continue to take place AND, in the safest manner possible.

 Students are asked to wear a mask to class.

1) What does CPR stand for?  Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is a life saving technique used when the heart stops beating.

2) How long does CPR Certification last?  Most CPR Certifications are good for 2 full years.  This includes most BLS (Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers). Conversely, Bloodborne Pathogens is a 1 year certification.
