Though CPRinst.org provides instructions on how to perform the basics of CPR like compressions and breaths, we highly encourage all individuals to receive proper CPR certification from a trusted certification provider.
All CPR certification providers should follow American Heart Association guidelines for CPR. There are several in classroom courses where certification can be learned and tested for as well as online providers of AHA certification. If CPR is learned online we do recommend the student receives a skills test from a certified CPR instructor.
Skills tests are where a professional CPR provider watches you go through the process of performing CPR on a dummy without assisting you. By passing this test of exercising your skills in front of an expert you can be assured that you’re ready to provide CPR in an emergency situation.
