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 Wisconsin 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.
In Wisconsin, CPR certification for healthcare providers is available from the American Red Cross. Through our innovative course, you can learn the latest methods for providing care during sudden cardiac arrest for people of all ages, including infants, children, and adults – with one rescuer and two. Find information on the classes available in your area, and let us help you deliver the best possible care to your patients.
Earn your full, OSHA-compliant CPR certification from the American Red Cross. Our in-person and blended Simulation Learning courses, which combine online coursework with in-person skills sessions, allow you to learn the proper techniques for administering CPR to adults, children and infants. Daytime, evening, and weekend classes are available – so it's easy to find the training you need at a time that suits your schedule. Browse all of our Wisconsin CPR classes, and get certified.
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 Wisconsin 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.
In Wisconsin, 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 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. So, to make things easier, all of our Wisconsin CPR classes and other trainings include digital certificates that you can access online any time – and even include QR codes and unique URLs that you can use to provide current or potential employers who need to confirm your certifications. Best of all, it's free. For details visit https://www.redcross.org/take-a-class/digital-certificate .
