Learn to save a life
CPR teaches students the basic skills of adult, child and infant CPR in accordance with the American Heart Association. CRFD offers community classes, as well as classes for private groups of six or more by request.
CRFD utilizes the American Heart Association's curriculum for CPR training and classes. Successful completion of a course will allow students to receive an American Heart Association CPR certification eCard.
There are no classes scheduled at this time.

Heart Saver CPR/AED (Community class)
Heart Saver courses are designed for anyone with little or no medical training who needs a course completion card for job, regulatory (for example, OSHA) or other requirements. These courses can also be taken by anyone who wants to be prepared for an emergency in any setting.
The AHA does not mandate a minimum age requirement for learning CPR. The ability to perform CPR is based more on body strength than age. In order to obtain CPR certification, participants will need to be able to get on the floor and be able to demonstrate effective chest compressions and to give effective breaths on the manikins.
Hands on skills testing will take place throughout the course with opportunities to practice and improve skills. There is NOT a written test. Participants must be in attendance for the entire course and complete the skills testing in order to receive a passing score and be issued an eCard from the American Heart Association, which is good for two years.
- The Heartsaver course does NOT include first aid components and is not specific to babysitting.
- The Heartsaver course is NOT for health care providers or prehospital professionals. These types of professionals usually need to complete a Basic Life Support class. Check with your employer or licensing authority.
Basic Life Support (Healthcare provider CPR)
BLS CPR classes are geared for those in the healthcare profession and are offered on an as needed basis. While these classes are typically limited to healthcare professionals, community members may enroll if there is space available.
