Click to learn: What is Hands-Only CPR / Compression-Only CPR / Continuous Compression CPR?

This simple, abbreviated CPR class teaches a technique called “hands-only,” “compression-only,” or “continuous compression” CPR. (There are three names for CPR without breaths, but they’re all the same.) It covers the basics of how to recognize a medical emergency and what to do until help arrives. We will discuss the Good Samaritan Law, as well as how to protect yourself from disease transmission while giving first aid care. And, of course, you will have hands-on practice with a manikin, learning to provide continuous chest compressions — without any mouth-to-mouth or mouth-to-mask contact — for an adult victim of sudden cardiac arrest.

Although this class is based on information taught in CPR-Twin Cities, American Red Cross and American Heart Association classes, this is an abbreviated class. Therefore there is no certification. As with all classes, we recommend that you read class descriptions and check with your employer, school, professional organization before registering, so you’re certain that this class will meet their specific requirements.

While delivery is free for most classes held in Minneapolis, St. Paul and their first-ring suburbs, there is a minimum delivery charge of $45 per session for classes held beyond the first ring of suburbs, as well as for classes held in downtown Minneapolis or downtown St. Paul.

The prices listed listed on this page are for a minimum of six students per class. To maintain our high standards for exceptional personal attention, we limit our CPR/AED (cardiopulmonary resuscitation/automated external defibrillator) classes to a maximum of 10 students.

Our per-student pricing for this class is already discounted for groups. In addition, there is a 10% discount off that discounted price if you:

  • book and pay for training for at least 25 students (in more than one class session, to maintain the per-class maximum); or
  • book and pay for your class at least 60 days in advance.

Since short-notice classes are more complicated to coordinate, there is a 10% surcharge on classes scheduled and paid for less than 14 days in advance, and a 25% surcharge on classes scheduled and paid for less than 7 days in advance.

Discounts and surcharges have no effect on the delivery fee.

All prices are subject to change without notice.
