The Red Cross not only offers CPR training for adults, but we can also host CPR classes for kids in Memphis. Through our private group lessons, you can arrange for CPR training for your scout troop, youth group, an outdoor club, sports team, etc. All of our instructors are skilled in CPR techniques and instruction – which means that they can deliver information in a variety of ways so that everyone understands the how, when, and why to administer CPR. And with an in-person skills session, the kids in your group will also gain the skills and confidence necessary to help them save a life.
At the Red Cross, we offer CPR classes for healthcare providers in Memphis 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. During class we'll not only cover how techniques have changed recently, but we'll also deliver hands-on training in one- and two-rescuer CPR, AED usage, ventilations (including BVM), primary assessment, and choking (conscious and unconscious).

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.

After successfully completing one of our Memphis CPR certification classes, your credentials will be valid for two years. But rather than keeping a copy of your certificate to show to your current or prospective employer, or printing a copy for your own personal records, you can locate them online any time. In order to keep things simple and paperless, we provide all program "graduates" with a unique URL and a QR code that they can use to access all of their Red Cross credentials – making them easy to track no matter where you are.
