First Aid, BLS & CPR Certification Classes Taught At Your Newark Business Or Home
Frequently Asked Questions About Newark CPR Classes
Q: You teach CPR classes at Newark businesses and homes? How does this work?
A: In Home CPR was started with the idea of making it easier to take a CPR class. We bring all of the training and audio/visual equipment – you just need to provide a space for our class. We have several mobile instructors, so when you have a couple dates and start times in mind for your Newark First Aid, CPR, ACLS or BLS certification class, let us know, and we will find a day and start times that works for both of us.
Q: What is the cost for setting up a class at my Newark office or home?
A: It depends on the number of people you have. We do one-on-one CPR classes in Newark, but that is an expensive way to take a class. As you add people to your class, the price per person becomes lower. You can visit any of our class pages and use the price calculator to get an instant quote.
Q: Our group in Newark needs CPR certifications, but we also need First Aid certifications. Can we get both certifications in the same class?
A: Yes, your group can take an American Red Cross or ASHI First Aid CPR AED certification class in Newark. It’s a single certification. All of the First Aid and CPR material can be covered during a single session with our instructors. These classes are typically 4 to 5 hours in length and result in a two-year certification card. You can also do most of the course online ahead of time, followed by a “skills session” with our instructors – the hands-on practice portion of the course. The skills session is typically 1 to 2 hours. Both approaches result in the same Newark First Aid CPR AED certification.
Q: I was told I need a BLS CPR class for my work in Newark. What is BLS?
A: We instruct American Heart Association’s BLS Provider CPR classes in Newark. It’s a confusing class name and often gets spoken or written in shorter or longer versions of the official title. It’s the CPR certification for everyone who works in healthcare or is a healthcare student. BLS stands for “Basic Life Support”. The title “Healthcare” was recently removed from the name, so you will see “BLS for Healthcare Providers” still printed as the name of the course – and we still include it in our website to cue people in that it’s the class for healthcare professionals.
Q: I did an online-only BLS CPR renewal certification class and my Newark work supervisor rejected it. Why!?
A: Never do an online-only BLS certification class. Those certifications are not accepted by any healthcare organization. And they shouldn’t be! You need to practice the skills of that course to be able to perform them in a real medical emergency. We teach the American Heart Association’s BLS Provider CPR certification course. It’s the required certification for anyone who works in a clinic or hospital in Newark. The AHA now has an approach called, “blended learning” that allows you to do a lot of the course online, but you still need to have a BLS “skills session” with an instructor. It’s usually 1 to 1.5 hours of hands-on practice time with the CPR manikins, AED trainers and BVMs. It results in the same BLS certification as doing the entire course in-person with an instructor. Ask us about blended learning.
Q: I want an Infant CPR class in my Newark home, but don’t need a certification class. Do you offer that?
A: Yes, we do! Our CPR Essentials class is a non-certification class designed for new and expecting parents. It covers infant CPR as well as basic first aid topics such as burns, falls and bleeding. The focus of the class is airway issues such as choking, drowning, seizures, suffocation and allergies because that’s often the cause that leads to doing CPR for a baby. We also cover how to talk to a 911 Operator while providing care for your baby in a medical emergency.
Q: Is there a minimum of people needed to schedule an Newark infant CPR class at my home?
A: There is no minimum number of people needed to schedule an infant CPR class with us. Your baby can be present during class, too. We’re available seven days a week to come to you, including evenings. All of our instructors are medical professionals such as Paramedics and EMTs.
Q: Do babysitters and nannies need the same Newark Pediatric First Aid & CPR certification as childcare and preschool teachers?
A: They do not. Babysitters and nannies are not regulated by the EMSA – the agency that requires First Aid & CPR AED certifications for licensed childcare facilities in Newark. However, many parents like the idea that the person caring for their infant, toddler or child has CPR and First Aid training. So if you are coming to homes to take care of children, it could improve your chance of being hired if you can show a First Aid & CPR certification.
Q: My last CPR class was so boring! Please tell me your classes aren’t like that!
A: All of our instructors take pride in the quality of their Newark CPR, BLS and First Aid classes. They’re all EMTs, RNs and Paramedics, so all of them have taken many classes over the years. They know just how agonizing it is to sit through a poorly taught CPR class. They strive to interact with you and encourage you to ask the questions about the topics that are particularly important to you. Whether it’s seizures, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes or just recognizing when to call 911, our instructors will give you a depth of understanding you likely haven’t received in a class before.
Q: Do you sell AEDs to your Newark clients?
A: Yes. We offer discounted prices on AEDs and AEDs accessories for our First Aid, BLS and ACLS and CPR Newark class clients. More and more businesses are purchasing AEDs because the manufacturing costs have dropped. Feel free to ask us about buying an AED.
Q: I understand First Aid training for a certification in Newark has to cover required topics. But can your instructor cover First Aid topics that might not be part of the course?
A: When we instruct an ASHI, Red Cross or American Heart Association certification course, we are required to instruct the course according to the guidelines of those organizations. However, our approach to First Aid training and CPR training in Newark is to be very interactive with our students. We encourage our students to ask questions and if you ask about a topic not covered in your course, we are happy to cover it. Also, because we are EMTs, RNs and Paramedics we can give you a depth of understanding on any topic that goes beyond the First Aid training and CPR training of your certification course.
