Where To Learn CPR in San Jose

Where to find a CPR course in San Jose

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, is a rescue technique used to pump blood to the heart to keep a person alive until medical help arrives. CPR can also involve using breathing techniques to provide oxygen to the lungs. CPR saves millions of lives each year, and anyone can learn the simple techniques. A number of San Jose organizations provide CPR training to help educate people about this important, life-saving method.

Certification and Non-Certification

CPR training may be certified on non-certified. Choosing which type of training you should get depends upon what you intend to do with the knowledge. Some jobs require official certification in CPR. These include emergency medical technicians, nurses and other healthcare workers. Some jobs require that you have knowledge of CPR, though official certification is not necessary. In addition, basic CPR training may be for use on adults. Training for CPR on children and infants is considered additional training that may or may not be offered. CPR training may also include dealing with choking problems and the use of common defibrillator equipment found in restaurants and other public facilities. Most instructional programs offer a card to indicate that you have completed certain types of CPR training.

American Red Cross

The American Red Cross offers a number of first aid and CPR training classes as part of their emergency-preparedness work in local communities. These classes may include safety training for babysitters, caregivers, lifeguards and to become an instructor in these classes. The CPR courses may cover training in both adult and infant rescue. Certification generally follows a written test. You can contact your local division of the American Red Cross for their class schedules that run throughout the year.


As a public service to the community, area hospitals often provide health information to the community. These may include a variety of classes in infant care, pregnancy classes and lifestyle changes after certain illnesses. Some hospitals also provide first aid and CPR training. Training in a hospital setting ensures the use of medically approved techniques so that you will be able to administer the proper technique when needed.

Fire Stations

Personnel at local fire stations may participate in community safety programs such as CPR training to spread the word on this valuable life-saving technique. These programs are often organized by the American Heart Association and have the firefighters who have used the technique in their jobs as teachers. The firefighters can often provide interesting and valuable advice on real-life situations in which CPR is done. Generally, these programs are certified as “community level training,” as opposed to the type that is given to medical personnel.

Community Centers

Many community centers around the country teach CPR to ensure that as many people as possible can help save lives during emergency situations. Often, these classes are held at community pools where the risk of drowning may occur. CPR can save drowning victims and can be an important skill for parents and grandparents if they have a swimming pool on their property.

Safety Products Companies

If you cannot find CPR training given by the previously mentioned groups, you may be able to attend classes that are offered by safety supply companies. These companies often hire emergency medical personnel to teach the classes. Though the classes may not qualify as “certified” training, but they can still provide valuable skills to help save lives. Ask about certification before you take the class.

Free CPR Classes

About twice a year, the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross offer free non-certified CPR training courses. They are usually called CPR Saturdays, or Sidewalk CPR and offer a chance for the public to learn the steps of CPR for no charge. These courses do not offer a certification card, so if you need the course for a work requirement, you should probably take the full class.

CPR Apps

With the invention of the smartphone, a whole new way of delivering information to people has begun. People are able to learn almost anything via their cell phone connection to the internet. Information on how to do CPR via cell phone app makes it possible for individuals to have instructions on how to apply CPR whenever it is needed. These apps can help to refresh the memory about correct CPR techniques when people are faced with an emergency situation. CPR apps are available for both Iphones and Android phones.

American Heart Association

The most widely accepted CPR certification in the San Jose area is conducted by the American Heart Association. San Jose CPR Certification conducts BLS, CPR, AED, First-aid, and ACLS courses in their comfortable classroom near downtown San Jose on Meridian Avenue.

6 Reasons You Should Learn CPR

Do you know how to perform CPR properly?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, is a technique used in medical emergencies to help keep blood pumping through the body and oxygen flowing to the brain. According to the American Heart Association, CPR saves lives, and they offer classes in communities across the country and throughout the year. Emergencies can happen anywhere, but a few circumstances may have particular need of someone trained in CPR.

You Care for Infants and Children
Many parents-to-be feel the need to get first-aid and CPR training to prepare them for the responsibility of caring for a new life. In this way, they feel ready to deal with any emergency they may encounter. If you work in a school or daycare facility, CPR training will give you the skills to help during an accident or medical emergency. Generally, CPR classes include the special techniques needed for use on infants and small children.

You Live With Someone Who Has A Serious Medical Condition
If someone in your family has a serious medical condition such as heart disease or a respiratory condition, you may wish to be prepared for an emergency by getting CPR training. The procedures of chest compression and intermittent breaths given to a person in distress can maintain life until the emergency medical team arrives on the scene.

You Own A Swimming Pool
People who own a swimming pool on their property often worry about children who might be attracted to the water and end up in a drowning accident. Knowing CPR techniques will help you to be prepared to help should a drowning incident arise. Grandparents who have swimming pools on their property often want CPR training to ensure that they are in a position to help if a grandchild is in trouble.

You Work In A Medical Environment
Those who work in medical environment may have CPR training as one of the requirements for employment. Often, the employer will arrange training for new-hires to ensure that all personnel can handle any emergencies that occur with patients that are already medically compromised. If you already have this training, it can help your chances for employment. The course that medical professionals are required to take is called BLS for the Healthcare Provider.

You’re Involved in Fitness or Physical Training
Frequently, teachers of fitness programs and other personnel of a facility are required to have CPR training to ensure that they will be able to handle any medical emergency that occurs during physical activities. This readiness can be important when older clients have sudden medical problems or when unsuspected medical conditions arise in any client. Having all staff members trained in CPR is not only a good marketing point for the facility and ensures that employees will be able help until EMTs arrive.

Are Online CPR Certification Classes Valid?: Are online First-aid Courses an Internet Scam?

CPR & BLS Courses online

Do you think online CPR classes are valid?

Over the past few months, we have had numerous students come to us after wasting money on one of those online CPR training companies.

How someone can take a CPR class on a computer.
1. Go to an online First-aid course website
2. Pay about $50 with a credit card
3. Print out your certification card.

So, do you think this sounds like a valid certification card? You did not get a CPR manual, no practice on manikins, no written test, no instructor feedback, and no reading or videos.

How these companies trick the San Jose community:
1. They offer a one hundred percent money back guarantee.
Wow. That is generous. However, these scam companies already know that their certification is not accepted for any type of job in California. In order to get your money back, you must have your supervisor fill out a long form that asks for their personal information. And then your supervisor will know that you decided to take a fake CPR class instead of attending an official training.
2. They use similar names to the American Heart Association and American Red Cross in order to trick people.
3. They use logos that are similar to the AHA or ARC.

Why you should not take an online CPR seminar:

  • You do not receive a valid certification card.
  • You would not be prepared to perform life-saving maneuvers
  • You would have to take the class all over again.
  • It is possible that you could lose your job or work time by not taking the correct class.
  • You should not support these scam CPR companies.

What you should do

You should make the responsible decision and take an official American Red Cross or American Heart Association CPR and First-aid course. The American Heart Association teaches CPR and First-aid Classes in San Jose.
