How Long Does CPR Certification Last?

CPR Certification, Kansas City First Aid, How Lond Does Certification Last

CPR certification equips individuals with the knowledge and skills to handle emergency situations effectively. The ability to perform CPR can mean the difference between life and death for someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. Quick and accurate administration of CPR can double or even triple the chances of survival until advanced medical help arrives. CPR certification is a valuable asset, whether you’re a concerned parent, a caregiver, a healthcare professional, or someone who wants to be prepared for any unforeseen event.

Different types of CPR certifications are available, depending on your profession or requirements. For example, healthcare professionals need BLS (Basic Life Support) certification, while non-healthcare professionals may need Heartsaver CPR/AED certification. You can check with your employer or institution to determine which type of certification you need.

Obtaining CPR certification is an excellent way to empower yourself with life-saving skills. The certification is valid for two years, during which you should keep an eye out for any updates to CPR guidelines and consider undergoing recertification when necessary. Recertification courses are generally shorter than the initial certification course and serve as an opportunity to review and reinforce the skills and knowledge acquired during the primary training. They also offer the chance to address any questions or concerns that may have arisen since the initial certification.

Kansas City First Aid offers many training classes to suit different needs and schedules to become CPR certified. You can choose between in-person classes or online classes. In-person classes typically occur at our local training center, while online classes are self-paced and can be completed at your convenience.
