Length: 2 hours (CPR only), maximum 4 hours total with first aid. 

Contents:

  • CPR (can include adult and/or pediatric CPR training). CPR is the initial care provided for a victim who has no signs of life. Prompt application of compressions and breaths to move blood and oxygen through a victim's body can greatly increase their chances of survival. This class also addresses care for victims who are choking.
  • AED training can be added to CPR. AED is an automatical external defibrillator, a device that will shock the heart to eliminate deadly electrical abnormalities.  
  • First aid (can be added to CPR training). First aid is care provided for an ill or injured victim who still has signs of life. Major focuses in this class include recognition of the common signs of a serious condition, basic level care to minimize further decline and ways to avoid causing unintended harm to the victim. Examples of conditions addressed include severe bleeding, heart attack, stroke, seizure, severe allergic reaction, shock and more. 

Cost: $550 for combined CPR, first aid. $400 for CPR only.

About Colorado CPR and First Aid, LLC

I provide flexible certification options at a reasonable cost. I focus on smaller groups -- most classes will have ten or fewer participants. In the classroom, my instruction is dedicated towards covering the most important details in an efficient manner. I recognize that while not everyone will have advanced medical knowledge, knowing the basics can significantly reduce death and permanent disability resulting from emergency situations.
