Who needs a CPR course?

Frankly, everyone needs proper CPR training. Not only does CPR training through ProTrainings provide students with the knowledge and skills to perform CPR properly, but also it helps them to prepare for situations where someone may need assistance. 

Such emergency situations can be scary; but teaching CPR to school children gives them context for understanding what to do in an emergency, including getting help and performing life-saving steps. 


Here’s what our customers have to say:

Student CPR Frequently Asked Questions

What do students learn in high school CPR training?

Student CPR is best taught in bite-sized pieces – that’s how we do it here at ProTrainings. Our high school CPR training educates students on how to handle emergency situations including heart attack, stroke, cardiac arrest, choking, and first aid. 

Students will also learn how to perform CPR and first aid for both adults and children, as well as how to use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) if they are available. 

Our online platform provides the training, testing, and continuing education options needed for thorough CPR skills development.

What is the youngest age you can teach CPR to school children?

Technically, children and adolescents of any age can be CPR certified. Most student CPR participants are high-school age.

However, students aged 12 and younger must submit a permission form signed by a parent or legal guardian in order to participate, according to COPPA regulations. Learn more about our CPR for all ages.

Can teachers take student CPR courses?

Teachers are welcome to participate in student CPR courses in order to experience the learning process first-hand. Many educators find this beneficial to facilitating teaching CPR to school children so that they can more accurately reference course materials. 

However, Student CPR is not a professional-level training. It is designed to be relevant to students and for use predominantly in high school CPR training. If you are interested in receiving professional-level certification, ProTrainings offers several courses and programs for CPR for adults.

How much does it cost for student CPR training programs?

The Student CPR program for teaching CPR to school children and high schoolers for free when taught in schools and organizations. Training for teachers, teaching materials, and CPR cards are also included at no cost.

In addition to our free CPR training, organizations are responsible for supplying their own manikins for hands-on CPR demonstration and practice. If students or educators would like to take the advanced courses, there is a per-card fee associated for each participant.
