Each year millions of Americans get trained in giving basic and advanced CPR. There are numerous courses offered all over the country, for both the general public and health care professionals. You can enroll in a Basic Life Support course or something more complicated such as Advanced Life Support. These programs are available all through the week at various schedules, to give our trainees different options for their training.
Enrollment is quite easy on our location websites, with the application form. The form is available all day so you can enroll whenever is the most convenient for you. We also accept applications through e-mail, telephone call, and in person. The last two options can only be used during business hours, so be sure to visit or call us during that time.

Programs: Basic and Advanced Life Support
When managing cardiac arrest, there are two guidelines upon which our programs are based. Basic Life Support is the first level of care receive by a victim, especially if he or she gets a heart attack outside of the hospital. This level of care involves mainly compressions and ventilation, as well as defibrillation, if an AED is available.
Basic Life Support
- Heartsaver CPR/AED (general public) – 4 hours
- Heartsaver CPR/AED C (HCPs) – 4.5 hours
- Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers – 4.5 hours
Advanced Life Support
- Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) – 16 hours
- Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) – 14 hours
All of the courses listed above are certification programs; just remember to have complete attendance and a passing grade on all the tests and you will receive a CPR training credential. They are valid for two years before they need to be renewed. If your credential is nearing expiry, we have re-certification available for ACLS, PALS, and BLS for HCPs training.
