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 adults (just like CPR level A), but in addition to that it also covers these techniques for a child, and infants. It also includes 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)
(Hard copy can be purchased, but it is not included in the course)
*It is advised that you read the eBooks in their entirety prior to starting the course.

I did the standard first aid and cpr c yesterday. Crystal was absolutely AMAZING!!! She answered every single question anyone had even if it wasn’t quite on topic she still take the time to make sure everyone’s questions were answered and everyone understood. She went around to everyone to make sure they knew what they were doing with the dummies and even took time to show each person individually. She was amazing and I LOVED her personality, I can’t lie I was bummed out I had to take the course for work and kinda of felt like it was a “waste of a Saturday” but crystal changed my mind very fast. Just her positive attitude about the course made me feel positive about it too. I’ve had other teachers in the past who you could tell weren’t that excited to teach it so it made me feel the same way but crystal being so passionate about it I felt feeling very happy I did the class and feel way more confident leaving her class than times I’ve taken cpr in the past.
YOU ARE AMAZING!!! Having been a teacher for 46 years, I recognize a unique and superior teacher when I see one, and Stan is one of those rare, natural, awesome teachers. How he imparted so much information in one training session, and kept us ( a decidedly rather senior audience) captivated and engaged audience for over 8 hours is an amazement. We so appreciate the superior first aid/CPR training that 31 of our active members now have. We can now go out on our nature walks, day paddling trips and camping trips with more confidence that we have trained First Aid people that are on these activities.
I just finished your CPR course that Stan gave to us over the weekend. As a tow truck driver we often end up on first on scene. Sometimes accidents can have people in need of medical attention. Before this course, I had no clue what to do. Now that I have taken your training, I can arrive on scene take control with confidence and help out anyone in need and give them a better fighting chance until other help arrives. I believe everyone should take this course. If one day, I save one persons life because of your course. It was worth it. Thanks again.
