Our CPR training in Huntsville can empower you to provide care to someone suffering a cardiac emergency – which can happen to anyone, at any age, at any time. And although that may sound unlikely, especially if you're young and healthy, cardiac emergencies are actually more common than you might think. In fact, cardiac arrest is at the root of over 300,000 deaths per year. Fortunately, our CPR classes not only cover when to use CPR, but how to deliver care to adults, infants, and children – which means that no matter who is suffering a cardiac emergency, you'll be well prepared to help.

The Red Cross not only offers CPR training for adults, but we can also host CPR classes for kids in Huntsville. Through our private group lessons, you can arrange for CPR training for your scout troop, youth group, an outdoor club, sports team, etc. All of our instructors are skilled in CPR techniques and instruction – which means that they can deliver information in a variety of ways so that everyone understands the how, when, and why to administer CPR. And with an in-person skills session, the kids in your group will also gain the skills and confidence necessary to help them save a life.
The Red Cross makes it easy for schools in Huntsville to provide CPR training to their students and their faculty. Through our special program, your school can enter into an "authorized provider" agreement with the Red Cross, which simply guarantees that the school will adopt Red Cross training exclusively for its health and safety training needs. Afterward, we'll train adult faculty members in CPR and first aid – and provide them with instruction on how to effectively teach students those same skills. Once the course is successfully completed, your students will receive a CPR course completion card. Additional details are available on our CPR Programs for Schools page.
Note: Red Cross CPR programs schools waive student learner fees, however instructor training fees still apply.
Whether you're a scout leader, part of a parenting group, or need to train your employees in delivering CPR, the Red Cross can help. We not only offer open-to-anyone CPR classes in Huntsville, but deliver private group trainings as well. This way, you can learn alongside your peers, encourage each other throughout class, and act as a support system – reminding each other about using our refresher materials every three months, and testing each other on "what to do if…" as you pass each other in the hallway. Not only that, but it builds teamwork and trust, and helps ensure that everyone in your group knows how to provide care when it's needed most.
