CPR: Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation
All of our lower mainland CPR certification classes will teach you how to preform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), how to prevent choking and how to use the Automated External Defibrillator (AED). In the AED training segment students will use mechanical AED trainers and will learn where to find an AED unit in the community.
- CPR-A includes CPR and obstructed airway procedures for Adult patients only (over 8 years in age). This is the level expected of fitness professionals and people who work exclusively with adults although students can easily upgrade to CPR-C.
- CPR-C is the most common level of CPR and includes CPR and obstructed airway procedures for Adult, Child and Infant patients as well as 2 rescuer CPR. This is the level required of lifeguards, registered nurses and students in some health care programs such as occupational therapy. CPR-C is not the same as CPR-HCP. For more information on the Health Care Provider program, please check our HCP course page or contact me for more information.
- CPR-D focuses on procedures for CPR and obstructed airway techniques for Children and Infant patients only.
The level of CPR that we most commonly offer is CPR-C although other levels, including CPR-A and HCP are also easy to schedule. If none of the dates posted work for you contact us to organize a private or small group class. Classes are especially easy to organize at our Vancouver CPR or Burnaby CPR locations.

Students must present proof of certification for a recertification course, even expired certifications can be accepted. Recertification is recommended annually by the Heart and Stroke Foundation and is the standard for most people. Please contact us if you do not know where your old CPR card is or if you are unsure of how often you should recertify.
