CPR Training in Louisiana
CPR is a life-saving skill that anyone can, and should, learn to perform. That's why, at the American Red Cross, we offer a wide range of CPR classes in Louisiana that are designed to suit everyone's schedule and learning style. With classes available during the day, evening and on weekends, in-person courses, online-only trainings, and blended Simulation Learning classes that combine online coursework with an in-person skills session, we can help you gain the skills and confidence to help when it's needed most. Check our newest course listing for details, and earn your CPR certification your way.
When you sign up for CPR classes in Louisiana, 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.
If your job, volunteer position, or your own personal goals don't require you to achieve full, OSHA-compliant CPR certification, then taking CPR classes online in Louisiana may be just what you're looking for. Online courses deliver the same information you'll get in our in-person and blended Simulation Learning classes, but you won't be required to complete an in-person skills session. Instead, the class uses a series of interactive activities designed to put your skills to the test. And while the certification you'll receive won't be OSHA compliant, it won't mean that you're any less prepared to help. Find the latest information on the online CPR classes available in your area.
CPR can save a life, but if you don't use the skills learned in your Louisiana CPR certification class, they're easy to lose. In fact, skill retention begins to decline within a few months after CPR training is complete, and progressively decreases for about a year. So, we've developed quick and easy online refresher materials that can help you keep your skills at the ready. With games, quizzes, interactivities and more, our infant, child, and adult CPR refresher materials can help you maintain your skills and provide help when it's needed most.
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 Louisiana. 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, 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.
