CPR saves lives! Being CPR certified will prepare you for any emergency that may come your way. Many organizations teach CPR but questions arise about who officially endorses CPR. There have also been some inquiries about our certifications and course equivalency as well-so let us explain!
American CPR Training™ / American EHS is a nationally recognized training organization, just as American Red Cross and American Heart Association. We have been conducting thousands of health and safety trainings nationally for over 20 years. Yes OVER 20 YEARS (we weren’t born yesterday). Our curriculum is consistent with International, ILCOR/ECC, and OSHA/Department of Labor standards- which are the organizations that together update the guidelines for CPR.
There are certain organizations that require that the certification must be "consistent with the curriculum of the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association," which covers all 12 national certifications, but is sometime misunderstood as “must be” American Red Cross or American Heart Association. We are not affiliated with the American Heart Association nor the American Red Cross; however, our courses are the equivalent to the curricula of both organizations.
Some of our larger clients include: Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Unicare, WellPoint, Anthem, the FDA, Microsoft, the US Army, the US Coast Guard, and the White House, to name just a few. We even train NIOSH, Federal Occupational Health and the CDC. Furthermore, most of our instructors have taken courses and have been (or are currently) certified as Instructors by the American Red Cross (ARC), the American Heart Association (AHA), American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI), or National Safety Council (NSC). The majority of them are also currently registered EMT's, RN's and Firefighters.
Some of our clients ask: What national agency, if any, grants credentials to CPR programs? I know it seems strange, but no agency "grants" credentials. We strongly believe that if we were not teaching AHA equivalent courses that follow the ILCOR/ECC guidelines, we would not still be in business after 20 years!
Being knowledgeable about the guidelines, who endorses them along with a combination of making sure the company training you is following the guidelines and applying the appropriate training will ensure you are being trained correctly and by the right organization… American CPR Training™! We are ½ the Time, ½ the Price and TWICE the FUN!™.
