4 Benefits of Training for CPR-C Certification

- by Christina Hryniuk

Obtaining your first aid cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) Level C certification is a valuable asset. It qualifies you to step in and make a difference in case someone needs serious help and prevent serious injuries to others around them at home, work, and in public.

If you are contemplating on getting Standard First Aid and CPR-Level C and AED certification, learn more about why it’s worth it below.

CPR Saves Lives

Most obviously, being CPR certified is that you can help save someone’s life. Most people don’t know how to react or what to do in emergencies, and that could lead to fatal consequences to those who need immediate assistance before paramedics arrive.

Reacting instantly in a life-threatening situation is vital.

In cases of cardiac arrest, performing CPR quickly is pivotal because it will prevent the situation from becoming critical. By attaining knowledge and hands-on training, people who receive their certification will have the skills and information they need to act.

At home or out in public, training can also save the life of a friend or family member.

CPR intervention:

  • Drowning
  • Trauma
  • Electrocution
  • Drug Overdose

More People Need to Know CPR

Not enough people possess the training necessary to aid others in emergency situations. This means that many bystanders fear they’ll make mistakes or cause harm to the person in need of help. Therefore they don’t intervene. Even those who do try to help don't know the correct procedures to follow to ensure the safety of the person in need of help.

With standard first aid with CPR-Level C and AED certification, you will know exactly what to do if the unexpected occurs.

Knowing CPR Increases Confidence

Many emergencies occur unexpectedly, it’s vital that individuals who intervene have confidence and cognizance to make the correct decisions. With the skills you learn from CPR, you will confidently react in emergency situations. Seeing someone approaching the situation calmly and assuredly also puts bystanders at ease and decreases panic.
