What is the difference between Level A and Level C CPR Courses?

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)
