Student CPR is a mission-based program dedicated to training students to be confident, knowledgeable responders. This is accomplished through offering a high-quality program that is flexible enough to adapt to unique classroom situations and is offered at no cost to the school or student.
Educators start by sending students through a paramedic-led video course. Students are able to train in a controlled group setting or individually at their own pace, during school hours, or as a homework assignment.
Schools may choose between an awareness-level and a certification-level implementation. At the awareness level, Student CPR may be 100% online or include informal hands-on practice with manikins. If offering a certification-level course, school educators become certified skill evaluators and complete a formal practical session with students, who then receive 2-year certification cards.
Educators are provided the tools to monitor the online CPR course as an assignment. Teachers and administrators can view completion and test scores and even order cards all from a single online dashboard.
Training of skill evaluators, training on the system, and follow-up service are all included so that implementation is fast and easy. This program is completely free. The only possible expense results from the addition of the hands-on component. More details are available in the Instructor Training Implementation section.
