Adult, Child and Infant CPR Classes
Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) classes are offered to the public, and teach the American Heart Association (AHA) Heartsaver Program. Classes take place on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:00 to 10:00pm. The classes teach adult, child and infant CPR, as well as rescue techniques in choking incidents, and how to use an Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) device.
There is a 5 student minimum, and a 9 student maximum for the class.
CPR instruction for large groups can be scheduled separately based on availability of Fire Department personnel.
Re-Certification in Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers
CFPD also offers the Practical Skills Testing session required for CPR re-certification for Healthcare Providers. To qualify for this, you must already be certified by the American Heart Association (AHA) in “Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers”.
Two sessions must be completed for re-certification. The first is an on-line classroom session by the American Heart Association. To complete the on-line course, go to onlineaha.org and view the Course Catalog. Purchase the course named “BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1”. The AHA does charge a fee for this on-line course. The course is a self-paced module with checkpoints, optional review areas and videos for viewing.
The course takes approximately 1-2 hours to complete. Once you have completed the course, you will be able to print a “Proof of Completion” letter, which you will need to register for Practical Skills Testing.
The fee for a non-resident is $30.00 per person for the CPR Class and the fee for the Practical Skills Testing of the Healthcare Provider CPR will be $15.00. The fee will be payable by cash or check at the time of class. If you are a Cary resident both the class and re-certification fees are waived.
