The City of Sioux Falls offers two types of CPR classes.
CPR Training Educational only- Most employers do not require CPR certification as it is a requirement of a licensing body. Most entities require CPR training not certification. This course is designed for groups of 10 or more who would like to know how to provide Hands Only CPR and use an AED in an emergency. It will prepare you to recognize someone in cardiac arrest and act fast during the minutes that matter most. We can also offer a Q/A session regarding First Aid Basics. There is no certification card but we can provide a roster for documentation of attendance. Course is about 1 hour.
American Heart Association CPR Certification-All AHA courses are a hybrid/ELearning format. Students will complete the online portion through the AHA (separate fee depending on course). Student will then be required to attend a skills session for the required course. After completion of the skills session an AHA certification will be issued. There is a fee for the skills session. Skills sessions are offered on Thursdays throughout the day at different Fire Stations. View Calendar.
There are four types of AHA coursed offered: Heartsaver CPR/AED, Heartsaver First Aid/CPR AED, Heartsaver Pediatric First Aid/CPR (child care providers) and BLS Provider (health care). Please make sure you check with your employer, school, or licensing body to make sure you take the correct course. If the improper course is taken there will be no refunds.
