CPR Training in Rhode Island
In Rhode Island, CPR classes from the American Red Cross can help you become a more capable, confident, and helpful spouse, partner, friend, neighbor, co-worker and citizen. By learning this life-saving measure, you can provide care when it's needed most.
CPR, or 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 Rhode Island 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.

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 Rhode Island. 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 know how important it is to keep track of all of your certifications – and we understand that keeping a binder at home can be cumbersome.
