Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
Sacramento CPR Certification Classes is proud to announce the opening of our American Heart Association CPR Training School in Northern California which is located in Rancho Cordova. The American Heart Association provides official training classes in CPR, BLS, ACLS, and First-aid. Sacramento CPR Certification is an official AHA Training Center (CA20784) which means the certification cards can be issued on the day of the class.
There are two basic levels of CPR training: CPR for those in the medical or healthcare field and for those who are not in the medical/healthcare field. Students should choose the appropriate class depending on their profession.
The American Heart Association BLS for the Healthcare Providers is the course that is required for those in the medical/healthcare field such as dentists, nurses, EMTs, & physical therapists.This 4 hours BLS class covers how to perform adult, child, infant CPR, how to use a pocket mask, how to use a bag valve mask (BVM), 2 person CPR, and how to use an AED (defibrillator). There is also a small written test after this AHA course. The American Heart Association teaches this BLS Class in Sacramento about once per week. The AHA also teaches ACLS classes in Sacramento.
However, if someone is not in the medical field, then they should attend the American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR & First-aid class. This course is appropriate for personal trainers, parents, nannies, social workers, child care providers (EMSA approved), teachers (clear credentials), and others who are not in the medical/healthcare field. The AHA Heartsaver CPR & First-aid class covers adult, child, infant CPR, chokesaving, how to use an AED, broken bones, allergic reactions, bleeding control, EPI pen use, and other life threatening emergencies. The American Heart Association offers this CPR & First-aid class in Sacramento about once a week.
The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS, and PALS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association, and any fees charged for such a course do not represent income to the Association.
