CPR New and Renewal
CPR recertification courses allow you to refresh your memory, renew your skills and stay up to date on the latest techniques. Designed for those whose credentials are still valid but near expiration, our abbreviated CPR renewal courses take less time than our standard CPR classes, and allow you to maintain certification for an additional two years.
Between Certifications: According to the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council, CPR skill retention declines within a few months of initial training – and continues to decline as time goes by. In addition, the council found that less than half of course participants can pass a skills test one year after training. This means that just one year into your two-year CPR certification, you may not remember how to help when you're needed most.
