CPR Classes in Wichita
CPR can help save lives – and it's something that virtually anyone can learn how to perform. That's why we offer CPR classes in Wichita that are designed for a variety of learning styles. With online, in-person, and blended Simulation Learning courses, you can train entirely in an online environment, in a traditional classroom setting, or enroll in a class that blends online coursework with an in-person skills session. Regardless of which type of class you choose, you'll learn the latest proven science and techniques – and gain the skills and confidence needed to help during times of crisis.
Our CPR training in Wichita 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.

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 Wichita 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.

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 Wichita, 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.
At the Red Cross, we offer CPR classes for healthcare providers in Wichita that are designed to help you stay up to date on the latest protocols and provide your patients with the care they need, when they need it.

Whether you're a nurse, firefighter, paramedic, EMT, social worker, teacher, daycare provider or work in another field that requires continuing education units (CEUs) to maintain licensure or certification, the Red Cross can help. We are approved to award CEUs in Preparedness and Health and Safety Services courses, including first aid, AED and CPR, Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens, Administering Emergency Oxygen, Lifeguarding, Swimming and Water Safety, and more.

After completing one of our Wichita CPR classes, you'll gain full access to our online Refresher Center. Here, you can test your skills through interactive quizzes, games, learning activities, and videos – and stay ready to help at a moment's notice. One reason we offer this is because studies have shown that less than half of CPR course participants can pass a skills test one year after training. In order to mitigate skill loss, we recommend completing one refresher every three months. For more information, visit our Refresher Center.
