American Red Cross CPR, First Aid, and AED Training | Bear Paddle Swim School Skip to contentNavigation

American Red Cross CPR and AED Training is only offered at Bear Paddle facilities.

Bear Paddle offers CPR and AED training for parents and our community to take further efforts to keep children safe in and out of the water.



SAVING LIVES BY TEACHING CHILDREN TO SWIM

Bear Paddle offers American Red Cross CPR and AED training for infant, child, and adult. Set you and your loved ones up to be as prepared as possible for unexpected emergencies. CPR training will ensure you have practice identifying and responding to choking and breathing emergencies.

The average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8-12 minutes. For each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival reduces by approximately 10%. Fortunately, with CPR and AED training, which takes just a few short hours, you can gain the skills necessary to help save a life.

Once your training has been successfully completed, you’ll receive a two-year certification in CPR and AED training, and have the ability to access refresher materials at any time during your certification period.
