In Kentucky, 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.

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 Kentucky 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.

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 Kentucky. 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.
In Kentucky, 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.
