CPR Classes in Columbia
CPR can help save lives – and it's something that virtually anyone can learn how to perform. That's why we offer CPR classes in Columbia that are designed for a variety of learning styles. With online, in-person, and blended Simulation Learning courses, you can train entirely in an online environment, in a traditional classroom setting, or enroll in a class that blends online coursework with an in-person skills session. Regardless of which type of class you choose, you'll learn the latest proven science and techniques – and gain the skills and confidence needed to help during times of crisis.
Our CPR training in Columbia 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.

At the Red Cross, we offer CPR classes for healthcare providers in Columbia that are designed to help you stay up to date on the latest protocols and provide your patients with the care they need, when they need it.

It may shock you to discover that CPR skill retention begins to decline within a few months after training, and progressively decreases for about a year* – and less than half of CPR course participants can pass a skills test one year after training*. However, you can combat this skill loss by using refresher materials developed by the American Red Cross. These materials are not designed as a full-fledged CPR refresher course, but rather quick, easy-to-use activities that can help sharpen your skills in just a few short minutes. And when used every three months, they can help you maintain your skills throughout the duration of your two-year certification.
