Wisconsin CPR Recertification for Healthcare Workers

Healthcare Professional CPR Renewal Courses in Milwaukee

American Heart Association CPR Recertification in MilwaukeeMany Wisconsin facilities require employees to have some form of CPR and first aid training. In fact, professional rescuers like EMTs and firefighters, lifeguards, and anyone working in a medical facility are required to have CPR certification. Red Cross and American Heart Association (AHA) CPR certification for healthcare professionals must be renewed every two years. If it’s been two years since you took a Red Cross or AHA CPR training class it is time to renew your certification.

When it comes to renewing your CPR certification in Wisconsin, Healthline First Aid has the training courses you need. Our recertification classes are designed to meet the advanced needs of healthcare professionals:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • EMTs
  • Firefighters/Paramedics
  • Dentists 

Milwaukee CPR Re-Certification through American Heart Association

Healthline offers healthcare providers CPR recertification through the American Heart Association (AHA), not the Red Cross. To be more specific, providers will take our BLS for Healthcare Provider course. This course meets recertification requirements in addition to providing more hands-on practice of rescue breathing techniques like bag-mask and compressions.

AHA CPR Course for Medical CertificationClients who have a current Red Cross certification should switch to Healthline First Aid certification through the American Heart Association. While the Red Cross CPR courses are accepted at most Wisconsin healthcare facilities, many employers prefer AHA training because:

  • The mission of the American Heart Association mission best applies to the goals of a professional rescuer.
  • The American Heart Association did the research that the Red Cross uses.
  • The American Heart Association offers the most widely accepted CPR certification.
  • Healthline First Aid AHA CPR classes bring a practical and engaging approach to training.

If you would like more information on the difference between the Red Cross and the American Heart Association courses, ask our instructors. Overall, it’s important to know the AHA sets the training standards used by the Red Cross classes. Our AHA classes are a more direct way to learn the latest in CPR and rescue breathing techniques.
