In the US, the American Heart Association and its affiliated training providers train over 12 million Americans each year. Despite this, there is still a discrepancy in the care that victims of cardiac arrest receive when they collapse in places outside of a medical facility. Statistics show that four out of five cardiac arrests actually happen in the home, and only 32 percent of them receive CPR from bystanders or family members. This is quite dangerous because of the complications that arise when cardiac arrest is not managed in a short time frame.
If you want to help and raise the 32 percent up, then you can enroll in any of our training locations around the country. We can be found in six cities over five states, all offering the same programs at the same rates. Schedules typically vary among these locations but the quality remains the same.

Just add the word “CPR” (e.g. Los Angeles CPR) to the city name and you’ll get the name of our provider! There are various ways to enroll for a class, the most popular being the internet. All our providers have their own location pages, each with an online application form. You can fill out this form at whatever time is convenient for you. Similarly, you can also enroll in a program through e-mail, telephone call, or in person. If you plan on calling or coming in person, refer to our websites for our normal operating hours.
CPR training courses
We offer a total of eight training courses at our providers: five training programs and three re-certification programs. Training programs are further categorized under basic and advanced training. All of them are certification courses so you are sure to get a training credential as long as you complete all the necessary requirements.
Basic Life Support
- Heartsaver CPR and AED – 4 hrs.
- Heartsaver CPR and AED C – 4.5 hrs.
- Basic Life Support for HCPs – 4.5 hrs.
Advanced Life Support
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – 16 hrs.
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – 14 hrs.
- Basic Life Support for HCPs re-certification – 4 hrs.
- ACLS re-certification – 5 to 6 hrs.
- PALS re-certification – 6 to 8 hrs.
Certificates you receive from these programs are only valid for two years. We advise all our students to renew before their credentials expire; in the case that the credential expires, the rescuer would have to take the training program again (instead of shorter, re-certification programs).
