Los Angeles CPR Classes – 3 Tips to Help Save Money on Your CPR Class

Your boss just told you – your CPR card is expired and you can’t come back to work until you take a class. What do you do? Before you start scouring the Internet for a class, make sure you are aware of these 3 things!

Tip #1 – Find out exactly what certification you need! There are many types of certifications out there and not all are created equal. Find out if your employer requires you to have a BLS (Basic Life Support) for Healthcare Providers class or a standard CPR class. Some employers will only accept major certifications. If this is the case, make sure that you take a class through either the American Red Cross (Located at 11355 Ohio Ave), the American Heart Association, or the American Safety and Health Institute. These are the 3 most widely recognized certifications in the country. The Red Cross also puts on a Super CPR Day where they train thousands of people at the Los Angeles Angels Stadium. This can be a great option if you need an ARC certification. Double check this! You don’t want to sit through a 4 hour class and realize that you needed a different certification.

Tip #2 – Ask for a discount! Are you a student? Do you work for a non-profit? Many discounts are not advertised. Do you go to West LA College? Are you going through Mt. Sac’s Paramedic Program? Both of these places should receive a discount on their CPR class if you just ask for it. Remember, it doesn’t hurt to ask!

Tip #3 – Get your class for free! Many certification companies will give you a free class if you bring your friends to class. Another option is to see if you can get a CPR company to come to your office and train your employees onsite. And the best part about this? If you set up a class at your office, usually your boss will pick up the tab! There are a few companies in Los Angeles that are mobile and can come to you. The average class size usually needs to be at least 5 people. Of the worst freeway bottlenecks in America, Los Angeles ranks #1 with the 101 and 405 interchange! Don’t waste your time sitting in traffic, let the CPR class come to you!

By checking out this information you are way ahead of the game! Good luck in your search!
