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 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).

The instructor did everything right. This was the best class. He explained everything clearly and I understood everything. Wake up this morning remembering what he thought us in class. He did an amazing job he was very kind to us and patient with us all. I will recommend friends and family to the First aids plus. And I will for sure come back again.
