Our CPR training in Hickory 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.

Although we offer a variety of Hickory 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 Hickory 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 Hickory, 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.
After completing one of our Hickory 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.
