Anyone here certified to teach CPR?

If so, how hard was it to get certified to teach and what's the cost? Once you're certified to teach How much do you make for each person you certify?

Dawg,

I did for many years, but don't anymore. You get CPR certified, go thru an instructor course and teach one or two monitored by someone else. If you do a satisfactory job, you're good to go.

I had a contract with a government entity to do their CPR and first aid training at regular intervals for a while. I was getting $30/person for CPR alone, and that was the early 2000s. I'd charge less for individuals just wanting to learn it for a good reason, as opposed to those who were required to do it by their employer, who was paying.

I had too many irons in the fire and gave up a couple of side gigs and that was one of them. I don't know what the going rate is anymore.

Hope that info is some help.

Yeah, its easy as shite. Boring, but easy. I got certified after like an hour. Just make sure you announce it because if not, you will get the shite sued out of you, and possibly even if you do announce it.

I am certified through the National Safety Council to teach FA/CPR/AED. I typically only teach for my company, but have done some outside classes and charge 50 bucks a head, since I pay around $10 for the training packets and the Certificates, but that was for a friend's company. You can sign up for the trainer courses through the national safety council online and the class is not very difficult to get certified. I think it cost $250 for the course.

We ( my wife and I) are both instructors through American Heart. My wife does it more than I do. We both work and co- own a small business. The CPR is some nice extra income for us( we are both 50). I only go if it's a larger class. We teach adult and infant CPR Plus first aid. We have two adult Manikins and two infants manikins also the have a fake AED . With the DVDs ( which run a couple hundred ) we are probably in around $1200....to teach a class of 10 expect to be there five to six hours, those DVDs are long and it's required to show them. We charge $35 a person btw

CPR changes every 10 years. What was forbidden is now required. Give a precordial thump and dial 911. Hook up the EAD if you have one. Anything else is feel-good fantasy.

Not being argumentative, but the American Heart Association has recommended the tempo of "Stayin' Alive" for compressions for several years now. They probably think the title is catchy too.
