Why Obtain CPR Certification?

CPR certification is required for many health professionals as well as those who work in schools and day care centers. Becoming CPR certified means you are well prepared to help in the event of a cardiac arrest or other breathing emergency.

CPR certification classes are offered by Safety First Jacksonville to professionals who are required to have a higher level of training than members of the community. It includes BLS (Basic Life Support) training and other important skills you can use in a professional setting, or in the community.
