I have always felt very strongly about being CPR certified. My dad is a fireman and he has always encouraged us to become certified and keep up our certifications. He feels that you never know when you could use it to save a life. Being certified became even more important to me when I became a teacher and was entrusted with the care of other people's children. But nothing made it more important than when I became a mother myself. It only takes a second for an emergency to arise, and the best thing you can do is to be prepared.

CPR and first aid training and certification gives you the skills to be able to respond to an emergency situation while waiting for emergency responders.  Those moments could make the difference between life and death. I have always been trained and certified at a class, but I find it very interesting to learn that you can take CPR training classes online. This is especially convenient for those who are being recertified after having already taken a class. is a great place to go to find information about the different types of certifications, as well as first aid training.

I would strongly recommend that you visit to learn the benefits of being certified in CPR. They have lots of resources for you to learn about CPR and first aid training. They also provide information about the history of CPR and what it stands for. This is valuable information and training that could save a life.
