Certifications are designed to last 2 years. Hospitals will only accept these CPR certifications due to the cutting-edge scientific research the American Heart Association

CPRdirect is not your basic certification provider. We understand the needs of our clients. One of those needs is quality customer service. In my experience, when calling a company for customer service,  it usually ends with me hanging the phone up in anger do to the person not knowing what he or she is talking about. It is part of CPRdirects mission to make an impact on our clients making them feel like their business is appreciated. You will always be connected to a person who can help you in any way.

The standard BLS course lasts about 2.5-4 hours depending on how many students there are in the class. Like I said before I tend to keep my classes small so everyone of the students has a mannequin to practice on. I have been in the emergency medicine field for close to ten years and I cannot tell you how many times I ran into a rookie who doesn't know how to perform CPR correctly. Here at CPRdirect we make sure when our students walk out the door they are ready to handle a cardiac emergency.

This is why to choose CPR direct in Levittown. We provide CPR first aid training that blows the competition away. As I tell my students "Adapt and Overcome". If we run into an issue it will be quickly resolved by one of our team. It can be confusing finding the right provider. Most people choose based on price, but remember, you get what you pay for. CPRdirect is not only affordable, adaptable and friendly, we are sensitive to the needs of those who need that extra push to learn the CPR skills properly. We have Heartsaver CPR courses designed with the "Lay" person in mind. There are many who would like to take a course, however, they are intimidated. I just certified my 12 year old daughter. If she can do it anybody can.

Some people are shy and afraid they will not be good as other people. That's why we tend to keep the CPR classes smaller, so everybody gets to know the equipment and algorithms correctly. When you sign up for one of our CPR courses you truly are getting the best training money can buy.The AHA CPR certification that lasts two years is the national "Gold Standard" of CPR certifications. Doctors and Hospitals will now only accept a CPR certification from an American Heart Association CPR and First Aid training in Bensalem.  We ensure that you are confident when you walk out the door to handle a cardiac emergency!
