We offer a variety of CPR training courses to meet your school’s budget.

Health Quest Community Education would like to train as many individuals as possible in CPR. We are dedicated to helping your school get a Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training program in place. Some schools incorporate this training into their Health or Physical Education curriculum.

There are many benefits to offering CPR training in school. Students are excited and feel confident in the life-saving skills they have learned. They can use their national CPR certification to help them obtain employment as a camp counselor, lifeguard, babysitter or daycare worker, depending on the level of certification. When teachers and school staff are trained, parents can feel secure leaving their children in the school’s care. When schools offer workshops to parents and caregivers, it extends the school’s leadership role in the community.

Training needs to be reported to a local American Heart Association Training Center, such as our training center. We can provide you with simple reporting forms.

The training options below are designed to meet the needs of your school and the resources available. We are happy to work with you to find the right option for your school’s budget.

Family and Friends CPR AED

This course teaches the basic skills of CPR and AED, but does not offer a certification. 

This course can be taught in as little as 30 minutes, depending the modules you choose.  To teach this course, a AHA Instructor certification is not required. The easy to follow video does all the teaching for you. In order to teach this course, you are required to purchase the basic equipment needed to practice CPR skills. 

CPR in Schools DVD

The CPR in Schools training kit provides you with 10 inflatable manikins, a training DVD and all the basics you need to teach this course.Similar to the Family and Friends course, an AHA Instructor certification is not required. This course does not include a certification. 

We Can Help Your School Find the Right Solution

As a not-for-profit organization, we understand funding for these programs can be difficult to obtain. Schools have raised funds by applying for grants, holding fundraisers, soliciting sponsorships, donations and sharing equipment between school districts. Schools that offer CPR training can collect a registration fee from parents or others taking the course with the student. 

Classes can be broken into several 30 to 40 minute time frames. If you are only teaching the Adult portion, this course can be taught in 2 hours, depending on the class size and the modules chosen. 

We are happy to discuss the training options in more detail, perform a presentation and review cost or funding options. Please contact us with any questions at (845) 475-9742 or via email at whennessy@health-quest.org.
