Frequently Asked Questions About San Jose and Silicon Valley CPR Classes

Q: Do your classes fulfill EMSA requirements for licensed childcare teachers in San Jose.

A: Yes! In Home CPR travels to preschools, daycares and childcare centers around the Bay Area teaching the American Red Cross Pediatric First Aid CPR AED certification course. There is a lot of confusion around the EMSA sticker being on a certification card. Red Cross and American Heart Association certifications are exempt from needing that sticker. Their certification courses are the industry standard so the EMSA does not require the sticker. Any other organization’s certification must be approved by the EMSA, and if approved the EMSA sticker is required to be placed on the certification card to show its acceptance. This is why In Home CPR exclusively teaches American Red Cross and American Heart Association certification courses.


A: I know CPR training is important. But, what about including First Aid training in my class?

Q: We agree! Everyone knows that CPR and using an AED are life-saving skills. However, First Aid training will prepare you for the most common medical emergency medical emergencies such as choking, bleeding, burns, using an epi-pen. Responding to cold and heat emergencies. Broken bones, seizures and allergic reactions. We teach San Jose First Aid and CPR AED certification classes combination classes.


Q: How quickly can I get my certification card?

A: We’re now issuing eCards instead of the traditional paper First Aid or CPR certification cards for San Jose. eCards are far more versatile than paper cards. Also, we can immediately issue them at your class. eCards can be printed like the traditional paper card and also downloaded as a PDF file to store on your phone or computer.  You won’t lose your CPR card anymore!


Q: Can I do part of my CPR class online and you come to my San Jose location for practicing the skills?

A: Yes! You can do part of your First Aid, ACLS, BLS or CPR class online, but you still need to have to do a “skills session” with us to receive your certification. The American Heart Association and the American Red Cross have quality interactive online courses. After completing the online course, our instructor comes to your San Jose business or homes to practice the skills you learned about online – practicing with the CPR manikins and first aid supplies. For example, if our instructor teaches an entire Red Cross First Aid CPR AED course at your business or home, it will take about 4.5 to 5 hours. With the blended learning approach, the online portion takes most people between 2 to 3 hours, but this varies on people’s reading speed and familiarity with the course material. The skills session takes between 1.5 and 2 hours. This approach results in the same Red Cross certification.

A: If you work in healthcare or are a healthcare student, you are required to have a BLS Provider certification.

Stanford Nurses Use CPR to Resuscitate Passenger on Plane to San Jose

Sophie Loo and Angela Bingham noticed a fellow passenger in distress and they saw the warning signs of cardiac arrest – pale, sweating, and unresponsive. They were familiar with how to treat cardiac arrest but in a hospital setting with equipment.

“We just went into nursing mode,” Loo said, “but the stress was beyond anything I’ve ever known as a nurse. We were so focused on what we were doing; we knew the gravity of his condition.

With the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), which every commercial airplane is required to carry by the Federal Aviation Administration, they successfully brought the passenger back to consciousness.


Health Topics For New Parents — Flu

In Home CPR has a been a leader since 2010 in educating parents to respond to pediatric medical emergencies.  One potential medical emergency that is often overlooked is the danger of influenza viruses or the flu.



As an independent businesswoman, it was refreshing to work with someone who believes as I do:that punctuality, professionalism, kindness, and good customer relations are worthy goals to achieve.

My family had the pleasure of having Chris teach us a class that, in my opinion, is not an option if you choose to have children – it’s mandatory.

Lori Costabile

I recently completed a CPR class with Chris, and I urge anyone who is interested in taking a CPR class to take Chris’ class; you’ll be happy you did. Chris is a natural teacher, and he has an easy going and very likable personality.
