Thank you for your interest in CPR classes offered by the San Diego City Firefighters Local 145. All of our classes are taught by San Diego City firefighters, which we believe gives the student the best instruction available. We use American Heart Association (AHA) materials in our classes, and issue AHA certificates upon completion of the course. The following is a brief description of the two CPR classes that we offer:
This one day 6 hour course costs $50 per person, which includes an AHA CPR textbook. The course covers CPR and foreign body airway obstruction for infants, children and adults. We also cover 2 person CPR with the use of barrier devices and/or the use of a bag valve mask (BVM). In addition, this course also gives instruction on the use of automatic external defibrillators (AED). The class focuses on hands on training with CPR manikins and the certification lasts for 2 years.
Local 145 also offers a BLS Renewal Course. This is a 2-3 hour refresher course. You must bring in proof of a current BLS card in order to take this refresher. The cost is $40 per person.
This class is for students who have never received a CPR/BLS certification, or who's CPR/BLS certification has been expired for longer than 3 years.
This class is for students who hold or who have previously held a CPR/BLS certification. We will accept students with an expired certification course, as long as the expiration is no more than 12 months passed from the date of the class.
