CPR Courses

CERT is an official provider of The Heart and Stroke Foundation courses in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

"Saving lives through education and technology"

CPR training is included with all first aid courses.  Certification cards are issued to students who successfully complete these courses. The Heart and Stroke Foundation recommends annual retraining as CPR is an important life skill. Individuals who have taken a CPR course qualify to take retraining courses anytime thereafter.

The following is a list of available CPR Courses:

CPR Instructor

We have created a comprehensive program to develop CPR Instructors to deliver CERT and Heart and Stroke Foundation CPR Courses. Candidates enter our comprehensive Instructor Development Program, designed to prepare them to support dynamic, learner-centered classroom environments.  This involves several steps first they must achieve current Standard CPR certification in CPR through CERT.  Second, they must complete our online requirement (knowledge, theory, and fundamentals of instruction). The third is to complete the classroom component (skills and evaluation of skills).  Last candidates are monitored on the delivery of their own program.  They are also welcome to co-teach our program before monitoring.


Training with CERT is always fun, interactive and engaging.  I specifically like how they customize the course to meet the needs of all participants.

This course was perfectly balanced providing us with the information we need and providing us with an opportunity to apply what we learned.

The course was amazing and very reasonably priced

I left the course with the confidence I need to respond in a first aid emergency.  Thank you!

- Steve

Our organization has been using CERT for 18 years to deliver our first aid and CPR training and we wouldn’t go anywhere else.  We have been so happy with the service we have received.

- Matt

Our organization consists of people with varying backgrounds from Nurses and doctors to engineers and electricians.  We love how CERT is able to provide a training that meets everyone's needs.  Thanks

- Harish

CERT was able to create scenarios that were specific to possible accidents that would take place in our workplace.  We practice these scenarios in class.  One day an accident took place where I was required to use my first aid skills.  I was able to respond with confidence and in turn, provided treatment to care for a casualty (and save their limb).
