CPR Classes in Chattanooga
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 Chattanooga 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.
If you learn best in a self-paced environment, need a flexible schedule and/or don't need full OSHA-compliant certification, then our online Chattanooga CPR certification courses might be the perfect solution. Featuring the same information as our in-person classes, but with online activities rather than an in-person skills session, our online courses will test your abilities and help ensure that you're ready to provide care when it's needed most. Check the newest class schedule and sign up for an online course.

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.

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.
