CPR Classes in Grand Island
When you sign up for CPR classes in Grand Island from the American Red Cross, you can rest assured that you'll learn the latest proven techniques for care – and the science behind them. All of our courses, including our in-person, online, and blended Simulation Learning courses, are developed under the guidance of the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council – a panel of more than 50 nationally recognized experts from a variety of scientific, medical, and academic disciplines.

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 Grand Island 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.

Although we offer a variety of Grand Island 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.

When you sign up for one of our Grand Island CPR certification classes, you'll not only learn how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation on adults, but you'll also learn how to use proper CPR techniques on children and infants. With instruction on hands-only CPR, as well as CPR that includes both chest compressions and rescue breathing, you can learn how to deliver the right type of care during times of crisis.

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 Grand Island 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.
