What Is CPR?
Being in an emergency situation or encountering someone whose life is at risk is an everyday occurrence for all people alike. The important question that arises is if the average person is able to cope up with such a situation and help potentially save a life. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation or commonly called CPR is a lifesaving technique for which you do not have to be a certified doctor. Anyone and everyone can and should learn how to provide immediate help to someone whose breath or heartbeat has stopped.
CPR is necessary during a heart attack or near drowning in which a person has stopped breathing. It does not require heavy technical instruments, only the right technique, timing and body positioning.
CPR Course Types:
There are specific CPR classes which offer CPR courses and do not require any prerequisites. These classes prepare emergency technicians or other ordinary individuals to provide help in form of compressions to a person’s chest when he/she is in cardiac arrest. This course is being offered online and in-person. Many Organizations and training companies such provide on-site CPR training to larger groups of people in the environment and setting of their choice and perhaps the latter is the most effective way of learning. The American Heart Association provides certified CPR training to different organizations, companies or offices whose employers make sure to establish a safe working environment. The AHA courses are usually provided by certified local training experts.
Advantages Of On-Site CPR Training:
Most large corporations and organizations see tremendous benefit in providing on-site CPR training to their staff. Having everyone train together in the comfort of their work setting provides a fun bonding experience for employees that also increases everyone's self confidence and worth. And finally, everyone feels that much safer going out to large company events, parties, retreats and the like. Combine all the aforementioned advantages and it’s safe to assume that workplace productivity and unity will also increase.
Furthermore, on-site training is more advantageous because it provides an interactive platform and a practical environment of learning which is harder to get online or even in smaller learning groups. Online CPR training has made tremendous advancements in last few decades but CPR is learned best with physical demonstrations and in person experiences. Local or on-site training provide better a forum for trainees to ask a lot of questions and clear their minds from every bit of confusion they have. The live setting provides a clearer image of the life saving process.
By receiving proper practical CPR training employees can be confident to respond quickly in an emergency event. According to American Heart Association around 250,000 to 400,000 deaths occur in work places in United States due to cardiac arrest. If organizations make sure that their employees are well trained in CPR these statistics will surely improve for the better.
The Investment of an organization towards training their employees and educating them about basic life survival techniques will benefit them in work place and of course in outside world.It’s truly matter of life and death.

I loved how you mentioned that it provides an interactive platform. My sister was telling me a couple of weeks ago about how she was wondering if it would be beneficial for her to have first aid training at her work. I'll make sure to pass this information along to her so that she can know the benefits of onsite first aid training.
