A Guide to Our Spanish CPR Classes

Spanish CPR training is necessary for many professions because understanding what to do if someone is choking or suffering cardiac arrest can save a life. If you’re looking to get your staff certified in CPR and your group consists of both English and Spanish speakers, consider a training center that offers CPR classes in Spanish to accommodate your Spanish speaking employees.

An English-only CPR certification course could limit your staff members that speak Spanish as their first language. It’s important for all employees to completely and fully understand the correct way to administer CPR if needed. Let’s take a look at our Spanish CPR training programs in Houston, TX:

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)

For nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare professionals, an ACLS course is for those who want education beyond the basics of CPR. The class is on average, 10.5 hours long and completion of the course will result in a two-year certification.

Students will learn the following processes:

  • Airway management
  • Life support skills
  • Effective communication techniques
  • Management of ACS and strokes
  • Recognition and early management of peri-arrest conditions
  • Recognition and early management of respiratory and cardiac arrest

Heartsaver CPR, AED, & First Aid

This class is typically for teachers, fitness instructors, security guards, babysitters, safety professionals, and other similar career holders. It’s designed to learn the essentials of Heartsaver First Aid, CPR & AED, and is not intended for healthcare professionals. Students who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate good for two years.

Students will learn the following crucial skills:
