Frequently Asked Questions About Palo Alto CPR Classes


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

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


Q: Do you instruct the American Heart Association’s BLS certification class in Palo Alto?

A: Yes, the AHA’s BLS for Healthcare Providers CPR certification is often the required CPR certification if you work in a clinic or hospital. If you a student in healthcare, you are also required to have a BLS certification.


Q: Do your classes fulfill EMSA requirements for licensed childcare teachers in Palo Alto.

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 the 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. What about including First Aid training in my class?

Q: We agree! Everyone know 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: choking, bleeding, burns, using an epi-pen. Responding to cold and heat emergencies. Broken bones, seizures and allergic reactions. We teach 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 Palo Alto. eCards are far more versatile than paper cards. Also, we can immediately issue them at your class. eCards can be printed like 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 Palo Alto 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 Palo Alto 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.


Q: I work in healthcare in Palo Alto. What CPR class do I need?

A: If you work in healthcare or are a healthcare student, you are required to have a BLS Provider certification. California hospitals and clinics follow American Heart Association CPR class guidelines and often require a BLS Provider certification — and will not accept any other organization’s certification. Other healthcare industries that require BLS certifications include dentists, physical and occupations therapists. We always instruct American Heart Association BLS certification classes for Palo Alto offices.

A: Yes, we view part of our job to know the First Aid and CPR AED certification requirements for Palo Alto industries. Whether you’re a preschool that needs an American Red Cross Pediatric First Aid CPR AED certification class or a dental office that needs a BLS for Healthcare Provider CPR certification, we will make sure you get the correct First Aid and CPR certification for your industry.

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.
