CPR certification in Georgia

American Training Association for CPR provides online CPR and First Aid training and certification that is available to all Georgia residents, including those in Atlanta and Macon.

What is CPR?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a technique for saving lives when the heart unexpectedly stops beating, known as cardiac arrest. When not beating, the heart fails to pump blood to the body's major organs, including the brain. These organs need the oxygen contained in blood to survive, and without it, serious brain damage will occur within four minutes, and the victim will die within ten minutes. CPR manually pumps blood to deliver oxygen to the organs.

What are the basic guidelines for performing CPR?

Rescuers must perform CPR as soon as possible after cardiac arrest victim collapses to give them the best chance of survival. To begin, rescuers should check the victim for responsiveness and determine if they have a pulse. If there is no pulse, they should call 911 and immediately begin CPR.
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that rescuing individuals perform CPR with the following steps:

  • Kneel above the victim’s chest with the arms straight, placing one hand on top of the other in the center of the chest.
  • Perform rapid compressions of the victim’s chest, at a rate of 2 compressions per second, or 120 compressions per minute. Ensure that each compression presses at least 2 inches down into the chest.
  • Continue to perform compressions until emergency medical technicians arrive and can take over.
  • It is recommended that non-CPR certified rescuers perform compressions only, as this is the most straightforward technique. If CPR certified, rescuers may perform rescue breathing when the victim is not breathing on their own.
  • To begin rescue breathing, rescuers must clear the airway by tilting the head back. Next, they will place their mouth on top of the victim's mouth and deliver one rescue breath then look to see if the victim’s chest rises. If the chest does not rise, give the second breath and then resume chest compressions. If it does rise, the rescuer may return to performing chest compressions. Continue to deliver 2 rescue breaths for every 30 chest compressions until the victim is breathing normally or until emergency medical support arrives.

What is the procedure for performing child CPR?

Child and infant CPR follows a similar process as adult CPR, with some notable changes:

  • Chest compressions should only be as deep as 1/3 of the child’s chest depth, typically no more than 2 inches.
  • Only one hand may be required for compressions on very young children.
  • Rescue breaths should be less forceful.
  • Chest compressions to rescue breaths should follow a 15:2 ratio

Where can I find BLS and CPR classes near me?

Basic life support (BLS) and CPR certification courses are available in locations throughout Georgia, with many options for classes in main centers like Atlanta or Augusta. These courses are typically available at community health organizations, community centers, or fire halls. In addition to in-person classes, individuals may obtain CPR certification by taking an online course, which is a convenient option for many people. It is important to recognize that while many CPR classes are available free of charge, those should be for information purposes only as they do not provide participants with the same certification that paid courses do.

Georgia CPR Data

  • Georgia ranks 36th out of 50 states for cardiovascular deaths in one year.
  • For every 100,000 people in Georgia, there are 273 cardiovascular deaths annually.
  • Cardiac arrest is a top cause of death in America.
  • Only 46% of Americans who died from cardiovascular complications had received CPR before emergency medical support arrived.
  • Over 350,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests happen across the US every year.
  • In Georgia, men are 44% more likely to die from a cardiovascular complication than women are.

What information is included in free first aid classes?

Free online first aid classes are a good resource for learning the basics of treating injuries in emergencies. Some of the main first aid procedures covered include treatment of burns, poisoning, choking, bone fractures, wounds, eye injuries, head injuries, and seizures. As is the case with free CPR classes, free first aid instruction will not provide certification upon completion. To obtain official first aid and CPR certification, a proper course with a CPR and first aid test is required.

What is the treatment procedure for choking in adults?

When an adult is choking on an object blocking the throat a rescuer should ask the victim if they are choking by using the universal sign for choking, which is to mimic choking yourself. If a victim is, in fact, choking, the rescuer must perform the Heimlich maneuver. To do this, the rescuers must stand behind the victim, lean them forward and wrap their arms around the victim's waist. Perform five quick thrusts, pressing a closed fist into the victim's abdomen and holding the fist with the other hand. If the object does not clear the victim's throat, repeat the Heimlich maneuver as needed.

CPR and First Aid Certification and Renewals

How can I keep my CPR and First aid knowledge up to date?

Individuals must renew their CPR and first aid certification according to the Red Cross and AHA guidelines. CPR cards have the expiration date clearly indicated, so individuals can be sure to renew their certification before it becomes invalid.

Where are CPR and first aid certification renewals available near me?

Individuals may renew their certification in person by attending a CPR class, or they may obtain renewal through an online course. First responders and healthcare professionals may opt for a direct online exam to avoid repeating the CPR class portion of their renewal
