CPR Training in Iowa
In Iowa, CPR classes from the American Red Cross can help you become a more capable, confident, and helpful spouse, partner, friend, neighbor, co-worker and citizen. By learning this life-saving measure, you can provide care when it's needed most. In order to allow everyone the opportunity to train – regardless of schedule or learning style – we offer CPR certification classes in three formats: in-person, online, and via a blended Simulation Learning class that combines online coursework with an in-person skills session. To find the class that's right for you, check our newest schedule.
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 Iowa CPR classes, our instructors will help you learn not only how to perform CPR properly, but when and why to use it. Find a class in your area.
When you sign up for CPR classes in Iowa, our expert instructors will help you learn the how's, when's, and why's of performing CPR on infants, children and adults. With detailed information on using traditional CPR (hands and rescue breathing), hands-only CPR, and rescue breathing only, we can help you gain the skills and confidence needed to help when it's during times of crisis.
In Iowa, 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.
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.
Because everyone should know how to administer CPR, we've created a special program for schools that allows educators, administrators and other school staff to become instructors who can deliver CPR classes for kids in Iowa. The CPR school program focuses on a hands-only approach to CPR, which is generally recommended for use on teens and adults who suddenly collapse. It's easy to learn, easy to teach, and can help your faculty and students save a life. Find out how your school can join the program.
At the Red Cross, you'll find the classes you need to meet your personal and professional goals. With OSHA-compliant in-person and blended Simulation Learning courses, you can gain an important certification for your job – and the skills to help a co-worker or client in need. And with our online-only courses, busy parents, siblings, scout leaders, and concerned citizens can get the same training on their schedule, though without a hands-on skills session this type of certification isn't OSHA compliant.
