So, although the various organizations’ classes look different in how the information is presented, and they’re all based on American Heart Association guidelines, the classes are more alike than they are different. To decide which organization’s certification to get, one factor is what your (potential) employer requires, or what your (potential) school program requires. In some cases, they are very specific as to which certification they require. In other cases, they’re not at all specific. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to check with them first, before signing up for a class.
While we at CPR-Twin Cities are happy to give you our opinion as to which certification is best for your vocation or education, the final word must come from those who set the requirements for your job or school.
