It never hurts to be prepared. Oregon CPR offers lifesaving classes for healthcare professionals and laypeople alike, granting two-year CPR, basic life support (BLS), and first aid certification in one-day classes.
Teachers, coaches, camp staff, and professional gaspers may be required to seek CPR certification. They'll also learn to use an automated external defibrillator (AED). The BLS certification course also incorporates CPR, and is designed for healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, therapists, and medical students.
