CPR CLASSES, TRAINING & CERTIFICATION IN NASHVILLE
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United States. With so many adults spending the majority of their day at work, the chances of needing CPR and First Aid skills in the workplace are considerable. CPR and First Aid training prepares employees to respond to medical emergencies and save a life in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.

Our seasoned instructors come to you, teaching comprehensive, hands-on safety training classes that allow your employees to get their certification card on the same day. We focus on providing hands-on training that equips your employees with both the theoretical and practical skills necessary to respond to cardiac arrests in the workplace and beyond.
Why Providing CPR Classes to Your Employees Saves Lives
The importance of CPR and AED training cannot be understated. CPR is a critical link in the chain of survival. Each link in the chain of survival plays a crucial role in the revival and recovery of a sudden cardiac arrest victim. The chain of survival is made up of the following links:
• Activate emergency response system (call 911)
• Perform CPR
• Use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
• Provide emergency medical services
• Provide advanced life support and post-SCA treatment
Brain death occurs just four to six minutes after someone stops breathing. Effective bystander CPR that is performed immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chances of survival.
CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, keeps the blood flowing and provides oxygen to the brain and other vital organs. Anyone and everyone can learn CPR. Those who have CPR training can perform chest compressions and rescue breathing, while those without a certification are encouraged to perform hands-only CPR.
Considering that we spend most of our days in a workplace setting, it makes all the more sense for people to undergo workforce CPR and AED training. People who have taken a CPR training course are far less likely to hesitate during an emergency situation at work.
