CPR Health Care Provider
The CPR level Health Care Provider program is the perfect class for people working in or wishing to work in the Health Care field. Most of the class we practice working in a team as you would in a hospital environment, we do pulse checks and learn practice giving artificial respirations and we use equipment that you will be expected to use in a health care environment.
- CPR-HCP is a level of CPR recommended for health care providers who are frequently expected to preform CPR. This class covers CPR, obstructed airway procedures, artificial respiration for adults, children and infants. The Automated External Defibrillator and Bag Valve Mask are also used in simulations.
CPR level Health Care Provider is not the same certification level as CPR-C. Some nursing schools will accept either CPR-C or HCP and many people who work in the health care field hold a simple CPR-C regardless of the fact that they work in hospitals. Please check out the CPR-C with AED page for and contact us if you are unsure of which level of training is right for you. CPR-HCP is the correct level of certification for most nursing students in local nursing programs including Douglas, Kwantlen and BCIT as well as students of other health care professionals like medicine and radiology.
We offer as many Vancouver CPR-HCP courses as we can especially in the months of August, September, December and the start of January. If you need a certification course and you do not see anything posted that works for you please contact us with some times/ dates that work well for you and we will do our best to accommodate you.
