Free CPR Course for Parents
Seattle-based CPR training firm HeartSaving Solutions, http://www.onlinebabycpr.com, believes all parents should have the right to learn how to save their children's lives in the event of an emergency. To that end, the company has made its online infant and child CPR course completely free of charge.
Available to parents, grandparents, older siblings and anyone else who would like to learn infant and child CPR from the comfort of their own homes, Online Baby CPR used to cost $13.95 per person. HeartSaving Solutions founder Keith Weaver, however, decided to provide the infant and child CPR training for free when he realized that in spite of its importance, many parents just can't afford to take any CPR course right now.
The Online Baby CPR course is designed for parents and is a complete CPR training class. Proceeding through the course on their own time, participants will learn child and infant CPR, choking and drowning prevention, automated external defibrillator (AED) use, and how to help a child or baby who is already choking. There is no software required and nothing to download. Although parents will thoroughly learn the basics of CPR, the free course does not offer a CPR certification, making it for personal use only.
Those wondering whether they can really learn CPR online needn't worry. Online Baby CPR uses industry best practices to teach the lifesaving concepts of CPR through video, images, audio, text and quizzes; students can ask questions at the OnlineBabyCPR.com forums, where certified CPR trainers are on hand to provide answers.
