What is the difference between CPR Level A and CPR level C?
CPR level A is usually required at work to meet workplace health and safety requirements. CPR level A involves skills related to CPR, choking and circulatory emergencies just for adults. It only takes just a few hours to learn. In most cases, for CPR purposes, an adult is 8 years old and older. This certification also includes training on how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
CPR level C is usually required by early childhood educators, security guards or just about anyone who doesn’t work in healthcare. CPR level C covers all the skills related to CPR, choking and circulatory emergencies for adult (just like CPR level A), but in addition to that it also covers these techniques for a child, and infants. It also includes a training for the two-rescuer CPR and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Included in the course:
- First Aid & CPR (eBook)
- Comprehensive Guide to First Aid & CPR (eBook)

No concerns. Excellent experience. Had no fear of COVID and spacing prior to arrival. If someone did, they would be pleased with layout. Someone was able to answer my calls regarding class choice, even on a weekend. Great having food/drinks in the small kitchen ( some for a small fee). No way to improve. Very professionally done, clean/bright space, and Crystal imparted material very well, was fun and enthusiastic! Thanks!
Eric made the course very engaging and unlike what I thought it would be. We were encouraged to ask questions and to openly answer any questions he posed. He got us all involved with discussion and was very charismatic. Great course. Never thought I’d feel so interested in first aid.
