At Second Chance CPR, our instructors are professional and experienced in both teaching CPR classes and performing life-saving techniques in real-world situations. Our programs meet the standards set by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and cover a range of topics, including appropriate rescue techniques for patients of all ages, heart disease, stroke, and risk factors. Students will learn how to recognize the signs of heart attack, stroke, and choking emergencies, as well as how to treat respiratory emergencies and use barrier devices like the bag-valve mask (BVM) on adult, child, and pediatric patients.

Please note: As of July 1st, 2019, Second Chance CPR has discontinued CPR-HCP (Health Care Provider) and is offering CPR – BLS (Basic Life Support) Provider as the replacement.
