CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a lifesaving procedure that is performed after someone suffers sudden cardiac arrest, which is different from a heart attack. It includes a combination of rescue breathing and chest compressions, which serve to deliver oxygen to a person's lungs and help circulate the blood. It is a vital skill, but one that can be used inappropriately. In our Delaware CPR classes, our instructors will help you learn not only how to perform CPR properly, but when and why to use it.
For some, there's no substitution for personalized instruction, which is why, we offer in-person CPR classes in Delaware. Held in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person classes give you the opportunity to discuss materials and techniques with your fellow students and your instructor, and get pointers on how to perform CPR more effectively during the skills training. Of course, not everyone has the time to take the full class in person, which is why we also offer a blended Simulation Learning course, which combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. It gives you the opportunity to learn on your own schedule, then get personalized instruction that can help you perfect your skills. Get more information on both types of CPR training, and find the right class for the way you learn.
CPR certification for healthcare providers is available from the American Red Cross. Through our innovative course, you can learn the latest methods for providing care during sudden cardiac arrest for people of all ages, including infants, children, and adults – with one rescuer and two. Find information on the classes available in your area, and let us help you deliver the best possible care to your patients.
In Delaware, CPR renewals take just a few short hours. Designed for those whose credentials are still valid but near expiration, our abbreviated CPR renewal courses allow you to refresh your skills, stay up to date on the latest techniques, and maintain certification for two additional years. If your CPR certification has already expired, you may be required to take a full course in order to earn your recertification.
At the Red Cross, we'll prepare you for success. Our world-class instructors are not only knowledgeable, but compassionate and can help you understand the hows and whys of the techniques you'll learn in class – and explain them in multiple ways. This way, you'll gain the most possible from our science-based courses, and be prepared to use your skills when needed.
