CPR Classes in Wilmington
When you learn CPR from the American Red Cross, you can gain the skills and confidence needed to help save a life. With the latest proven science and techniques for providing care to infants, children and adults, our instructors will help you understand when and how to deliver care during times of crisis. And although classes take just a few short hours to complete, the information you'll learn can make all the difference to those you know, and even those you don't. Check out all of the upcoming CPR classes in Wilmington.
Whether you're a family of two or 10, keeping everyone in your family safe is a shared responsibility. That's why we recommend that all family members enroll in one of our adult, children, and infant CPR classes in Wilmington. With the knowledge and skills to help anyone at any age, you can provide care to your family when it's needed most. Classes are available online, in person and via our blended Simulation Learning experience, so no matter what your schedule may be or how you learn best, you can find a class that suits your needs. To enroll in an in-person class as a family, you can simply sign up for the same course individually, or sign up online to register everyone at once.
Note: Most students are aged 16 or older, but younger students are also welcome to train with the Red Cross.
If you learn best in a self-paced environment, need a flexible schedule and/or don't need full OSHA-compliant certification, then our online Wilmington CPR certification courses might be the perfect solution. Featuring the same information as our in-person classes, but with online activities rather than an in-person skills session, our online courses will test your abilities and help ensure that you're ready to provide care when it's needed most. Check the newest class schedule and sign up for an online course.
The Red Cross not only offers CPR training for adults, but we can also host CPR classes for kids in Wilmington. 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.
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 Wilmington, 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.
It may shock you to discover that CPR skill retention begins to decline within a few months after training, and progressively decreases for about a year* – and less than half of CPR course participants can pass a skills test one year after training*. However, you can combat this skill loss by using refresher materials developed by the American Red Cross. These materials are not designed as a full-fledged CPR refresher course, but rather quick, easy-to-use activities that can help sharpen your skills in just a few short minutes. And when used every three months, they can help you maintain your skills throughout the duration of your two-year certification.

After successfully completing one of our Wilmington CPR certification classes, your credentials will be valid for two years. But rather than keeping a copy of your certificate to show to your current or prospective employer, or printing a copy for your own personal records, you can locate them online any time. In order to keep things simple and paperless, we provide all program "graduates" with a unique URL and a QR code that they can use to access all of their Red Cross credentials – making them easy to track no matter where you are.
