CPR Training in Oklahoma
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 Oklahoma 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.
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 Oklahoma 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.
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 Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma 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.
In Oklahoma, 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.
