Frequently Asked Questions About Santa Rosa CPR Classes


Q: What days and times is In Home CPR available to come to my business or home in Santa Rosa?

A: We are available seven days a week, including evenings to teach a Santa Rosa CPR certification class at your home or business. Our instructors are all medical professionals who have real-life experience responding to medical emergencies.


Q: A CPR class at my Santa Rosa office or home? How do I schedule that?

A: Feel free to contact us with any questions you have. Since most people only do First Aid and CPR certification classes every two years, it can be difficult to remember the name of the class you need and which organization’s certification is required for your business in Santa Rosa. Just ask us. Part of our job is to know the CPR and First Aid certification requirements for different industries. We are familiar with OSHA, county dental societies, healthcare provider CPR requirements and the EMSA.


Q: CPR training is important. What about including First Aid training in my Santa Rosa class?

A: We agree! Everyone knows that CPR and using an AED are life-saving skills. However, a Santa Rosa first aid training class will prepare you for the most common 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 combination certification classes, too.


Q: What Santa Rosa First Aid certification will I be receiving?

A: We offer American Red Cross Pediatric First Aid & CPR AED certifications for licensed childcare facilities in Santa Rosa. This fulfills the First Aid & CPR requirements of the EMSA – the agency that regulates California daycares and preschools. We offer ASHI First Aid certifications for all other non-medical professionals who need a First Aid certification in Santa Rosa because that certification meets OSHA requirements. These would include jobs like construction, athletic coaches, personal trainers, and school bus drivers, and anyone else who is required to have a First Aid course. You can also add CPR AED certification training to your course if needed.


Q: I work in healthcare in Santa Rosa. Am I required to take a BLS class?

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 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 occupational therapists. We always instruct American Heart Association BLS certification classes in Santa Rosa offices.


Q: I’ve been told I need to take a “BLS” class for my Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa. 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 an Infant CPR class in my Santa Rosa 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: Do your classes fulfill EMSA requirements for licensed childcare teachers in Santa Rosa?

A: Yes! In Home CPR travels to preschools, daycares and childcare centers around the Bay Area and Sacramento 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 in Santa Rosa.


Q: What are my options for taking an ACLS class in Santa Rosa with your company?

A: We can do your entire American Heart Association ACLS class at your Santa Rosa 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.


Q: What topics are covered in a Santa Rosa CPR certification class?

A: Santa Rosa CPR training classes are more than just learning CPR. First, you learn to assess a person who needs help and determine if they need CPR. CPR training includes how to do CPR for adults, children and infants. However, you can exclude particular age groups from your CPR training. For example, if the required CPR certification you need only applies to training in adult CPR, you can choose to skip pediatric CPR. The class also includes training to respond to choking and training to use an AED – an Automated External defibrillator.

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.

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.
