Frequently Asked Questions About San Mateo CPR Classes


Q: What is a San Mateo In Home CPR class? Do you also come to businesses in San Mateo?

A: Our company was started with the idea of making it more convenient for people in San Mateo to take a CPR, First Aid, BLS or ACLS class. Our instructors are all EMTs, Paramedics and RNs who will bring all of the training equipment to you for your class. You just need to provide a space for your class. Outdoor classes are fine, too.


Q: When I think of first aid, I think of how to handle bleeding and burns, but I know it must include more, right?

A: The first aid training classes we teach in San Mateo cover much more than cuts and burns. We instruct American Red Cross First Aid and ASHI certification courses for San Mateo. They include responding to seizures, broken bones, strokes, heart attacks, allergic reactions, how to use an epi-pen, poisonings, and temperature-related emergencies. We also offer pediatric first aid classes for licensed childcare centers in San Mateo and non-certification infant first aid classes for new and expecting parents.


Q: I was told I need a BLS CPR class for my work in San Mateo. What is BLS?

A: We instruct American Heart Association’s BLS Provider CPR classes in San Mateo.  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: What skills are taught in a San Mateo BLS American Heart Association BLS certification class?

A: Unlike a CPR class for the public, a BLS class is geared for medical professionals that may have access to additional equipment and trained personnel. Skills include: adult, child and infant CPR. 1 person, 2 person and group responses are practiced, use of an AED – automated external defibrillator, using a BVM – bag-value-mask, advanced airways, responses to choking and opioid emergencies. Anyone can take an AHA BLS certification course in San Mateo.


Q: I want an infant CPR class for my family in San Mateo. Do you bring the infant manikins to my home?

A: Yes, our instructor will bring all of the training equipment, including infant CPR manikins that provide real-time electronic feedback. You only need to provide a space to have our class. It’s an interactive class; questions are encouraged. Your instructor will be a medical professional.


Q: We need a First Aid class in San Mateo for our preschool. How do we make sure we’re fulfilling our licensing requirements?

A: We will make sure you’re getting the correct First Aid certification class for your daycare or preschool. We know the EMSA’s requirements for you. We instruct American Red Cross Pediatric First Aid CPR AED certification classes in San Mateo because it’s their preferred certification.


Q: Can I do my CPR class online first, and then you come to my San Mateo location for practicing the skills?

A: 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 ASHI, and the American Red Cross have quality interactive online courses. After completing the online course, our instructor comes to your San Mateo business or home 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 San Mateo 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 certification.


Q: Do you know the San Mateo CPR certification and First Aid class requirements for my industry?

A: Yes, we view part of our job to know the First Aid and CPR AED certification requirements for San Mateo 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.


Q: What are my options for taking an ACLS certification class in San Mateo with your company?

A: We can do your entire American Heart Association ACLS class at your San Mateo business or home or you can do the “blended learning” approach – you complete most of the course on-line and then our instructor comes to you to run a practice megacode and some airway skills.

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.
