Why choose LFTC for CPR for Kids/Schools
Life First Training Center is the leader in children’s safety training in California. LFTC has taught over 6000+ children ages 8-18yrs CPR to date. Some of these children have actually used their training in real life situations. Our CPR for Kids/Schools programs are great for schools, boy/girls scout groups, homeschool groups, etc. CPR for Kids/Schools is offered with 3 options. Please read below for further information.

1.  Non-Certification Program
CPR for Kids/Schools is an age appropriate course that teaches CPR for all ages, relief of choking and how to use an AED. The non-certification course uses the American Heart Associations Family and Friends curriculum. Family and Friends is the most basic CPR training available. Students will not receive a “Certification” in CPR with this course but they will receive a certificate of participation. If students are taking this training for informational purposes only, this would be the course of choice. This course is also the best choice for children under age 14. Length: 2.5-3 hours depending on class size and breaks (On-site classes may be broken into 2 days if needed)

Course Cost: $10 per student with a minimum of 10 paid participants (which includes course participation certificate, course textbook and face shield)

2. Basic Level Certification Program  CPR for Kids/Schools is an age appropriate course that teaches CPR for all ages, relief of choking and how to use an AED. The Basic Level Certification course uses the American Heart Association's Heartsaver curriculum. The Heartsaver curriculum is slightly more advanced than Family and Friends curriculum. Students are tested on their CPR skills and are eligible to receive an American Heart Association Basic Level CPR Certification card.  If students are required to be “certified” in CPR, this would be the course of choice.  Length: 3-4 hours depending on class size and breaks (On-site classes may be broken into 2 days if needed)

Course Cost: $15 per student with a minimum of 10 paid participants (which includes an AHA course certification card, course textbook and face shield)

3.  Online Learning Basic Level Certification Program
CPR for Kids is an age appropriate course that teaches CPR for all ages, relief of choking and how to use an AED. The Online Learning Basic Level Certification course uses the American Heart Associations Heartsaver blended learning curriculum. The Heartsaver curriculum is slightly more advanced than Family and Friends curriculum. With the blended learning approach, students complete the majority of training online. After completing the online portion, students are required to attend a skills testing session. Skills testing sessions take approximately one hour to complete and can take place at our location or requested offsite locations/schools.  Students are tested on their CPR skills and are eligible to receive an American Heart Association Basic Level CPR Certification card.  If students are required to be “certified” in CPR, this course is another good option which will save in-class time.

Course Cost: $40 per student with a minimum of 10 paid participants (which includes AHA course certification card, the online training course and face shield)
