CPR and first aid training in Seattle
If you need CPR certification to certify training as a CPR rescuer, sign up for training with Seattle CPR. We have a large variety of training courses available all through the week, sometimes even during evenings and weekends if we cannot accommodate all the students into the existing schedules. There are a total of 8 programs available, 5 training programs and 3 re-certification classes. We offer these programs at very affordable rates so you don’t have to worry about spending large amounts of money on getting certified.
What is CPR certification?
Getting certified for CPR training is easy with our provider. Our courses at Seattle CPR all give students certification once they complete training and are able to pass the certification test. The test is typically made up of a skills portion and written portion. Once the student completes all of these requirements, we award him or her a CPR training certificate valid for two years all over the US.
CPR certificates certify that you are a trained CPR rescuer. Certificates are usually requested as requirements for high risk jobs such as those in healthcare. Healthcare professionals such as nurses are required to have basic and advanced training for CPR.
Certificates expire 24 months after we award them to students. They can be renewed before they expire through a re-certification class. We offer re-certification for three of our programs. Be sure to renew your certificate before the expiration! Expired certification does not qualify for renewal and you will have to retake the training program.
Healthcare in Seattle
With Seattle home to just under a population of 700,000 people, accessible healthcare is one of the main priorities of the Seattle government. Healthcare programs for women, children, families, and seniors are available and easily accessible to Seattle Citizens. The public health sector of the local government ensures healthcare for all ages to build and strengthen communities and neighborhoods which in turn strengthens the city. Public health in Seattle focuses on these five areas:
- Family support
- School readiness and preschool
- Child care
- After-school services
It is important that these services reach children from low-income families and special populations, such as families with physically and mentally disabled members, teenage parents, immigrants, and refugees.
