You've learned you need a CPR certification. However, you aren't sure which one you need. And you don't know if a certification from the American Heart Association, American Red Cross or another organization is the right choice. If you are frustrated, that is understandable -- choosing the right CPR certification class can be very confusing!
Here are the four questions to ask yourself to ensure that you sign up for the right CPR certification class:
- Which CPR certification do I need: standard or healthcare provider?
- Do I need an AED certification as well?
- Does my CPR certification need to focus on infants and children?
- Should I choose the American Heart Association or American Red Cross?
