what is CPR and why is it important

cpr and first aid training
CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is a life-saving procedure used during cardiac arrest when someone’s heart stops beating or they stop breathing. It involves chest compressions and rescue breaths to maintain oxygen flow to the brain and vital organs. CPR is important because it sustains organ function until medical help arrives, increasing the chances of survival. Learning CPR is crucial as it can be performed by bystanders and significantly improves the likelihood of saving a person’s life during an emergency.

Training Methods and Learning Objectives

There are many different training methods available, but finding one that is both affordable and near you can be a challenge. However, taking the time to find a quality training program is worth it. Not only will you learn life-saving techniques, but they will also gain the confidence to use them in an emergency situation.

At Illinois Health Careers, the Instructor-led course includes a combination of video, workbook, lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice to facilitate the students. The hands-on training provides students with the opportunity to practice CPR on mannequins and learn how to use an AED. Visit our website to learn more about the program.

Requirements for student certification

Participation in all events, including lecture, video, hands-on practice, and skill assessments, is required for certification in CPR training from Illinois Health Careers. On the certification card, only the competencies in which the student demonstrated proficiency will be listed.

In the event that a student does not pass the skills testing, the instructor will review the skills that were deficient and take a retest. Moreover, a student with an expired certification card is not eligible for a recertification course.  To qualify for a recertification course, you must possess a current provider card from AHA or an equivalent organization.

Earn CPR certification upon course completion

CPR completion cards prove that an individual has completed a CPR training course. CPR completion cards are issued by the instructor of the CPR course and are generally valid for two years. Each card has a unique control number and contains the individual’s name, completion date, and instructor’s signature. CPR completion cards can help employers verify that their employees are adequately trained in CPR and can provide a life-saving skill in an emergency.
