Although we offer a variety of Portland CPR training options, if you learn best in a traditional classroom and want to ensure that you're performing your CPR skills correctly, then it's our in-person classes that you'll get the most from. With a knowledgeable instructor who can explain concepts in a variety of ways, ample opportunity for discussion, the chance to talk through scenarios with your classmates, and receive personalized instruction during your hands-on skills session, our in-person classes can help you gain the skills and confidence needed to provide life-saving care during times of crisis.

Through our blended Simulation Learning program, you can earn full, OSHA-compliant CPR certification in a convenient online/in-person format. By combining online coursework with an in-person skills session, our Portland CPR training classes are easy to work into your schedule. The online portion includes all of the same content that our in-person courses cover, but in a way that's more flexible. And with the option to attend one of a myriad of skills sessions, you'll also gain the opportunity to receive one-on-one instruction to ensure that you understand the techniques addressed in class.

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 Portland, 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.
When you sign up for one of our Portland CPR renewal courses, you can refresh your memory, renew your skills and learn new techniques. CPR renewal classes are abbreviated (when compared to our standard certification courses) and are designed for those whose credentials are still valid but near expiration. Once successfully completed, they will extend your certification by two years. For details on the CPR renewal training available in your area, check out our newest course schedule.
