You choose the time and place for our class and we bring the classroom to you. There is no minimum number of students needed to schedule a class with us. 

CPR Essentials

The Novato CPR Essentials Class is a pediatric-focused CPR class for new and expecting parents and their family members. It’s an interactive class and questions are encouraged. Grandparents, nannies, and other family members are encouraged to attend!


Novato​ CPR AED classes are a two-year ASHI certification class taught at your business or home. This course is for non-medical professionals who need a CPR certification, such as personal trainers, athletic coaches and school teachers.

Frequently Asked Questions About Novato CPR Classes


Q: How do I set up a CPR class at my Novato business or home?

A: Whether you need CPR Training, BLS Certification or an Infant CPR class, contact us with a couple of dates and start times in mind and we will schedule a class with you. We can also train you to use an AED.


Q: What is the cost for setting up a class at my Novato office or home?

A: It depends on the number of people you have. We do one-on-one CPR classes in Novato, 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: How long is a Novato American Heart Association BLS certification valid for?

A: All AHA BLS certification cards last for two years. There are two different ways you can take a BLS renewal certification class. 1) We can come to your Novato office or home and instruct the entire BLS class. 2) You can do some of the BLS course online ahead of time. Then our instructor comes to you for a BLS “skills session” – the hands-on portion of the class: practicing with the CPR manikins and other BLS training supplies. Both approaches result in the American Heart Association BLS certification. You will receive your BLS certification card the day of your class.


Q: I’ve been told I need to take a “BLS” class for my Novato job. What does that mean?

A: BLS stands for Basic Life Support. Everyone who works in healthcare is required to have a BLS Provider CPR certification for Novato. Hospitals and clinics in California almost all require an American Heart Association BLS certification for employees, not the Red Cross BLS certification.  People who work in EMS (Emergency Medical Services) can usually do either organization’s BLS certification. We know choosing the right certification class can be confusing, so if you’re not sure, just ask us!


Q: I want to take an infant CPR class with my entire family at my home in Novato. Is that possible?

A: Yes, that’s what we specialize in! Everyone who will be caring for your baby can train together to respond to the most common pediatric medical emergencies: choking, drowning, suffocation, allergic reactions, seizures and many more topics.


Q: I run a licensed childcare facility in Novato and need my staff trained. What is the correct class for us?

A: Childcare teachers are required to have a Pediatric First Aid & CPR certification in Novato. We offer the American Red Cross class because it fulfills the licensing requirements of the EMSA – the agency that regulates childcare facilities in California.


Q: I’m not sure which certification I need! Can you help me?

A: Absolutely! We know the First Aid, BLS, CPR and ACLS requirements for all industries in Novato. It’s our job to make sure you receive the right certification so you’re in compliance with your industry requirements. We know OSHA, EMSA and hospital requirements. Feel free to contact us and we’re more than happy to work with you to make sure you’re taking the correct certification class.


Q: I want to get CPR certified, but I heard there is a written test. Is that true?

A: There is no written test to get CPR certified in Novato. ASHI and American Red Cross CPR certification courses focus on understanding skills via a DVD and the instructor, along with plenty of hands-on practice.


Q: Do you offer Novato ASHI CPR certification classes?

A: Yes, the American Health and Safety Institute’s (ASHI) certifications fulfill OSHA requirements for construction and other industries. We offer Novato ASHI First Aid CPR AED certification classes that award all students a two-year certification. We also offer Red Cross and American Heart Association certification classes in Novato.

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.
