Not only is CPR certification the responsible choice, but it’s also often the required choice. Employers, even in the non-medical fields are cracking down on employee safety and are beginning to see the crucial importance of this life-saving knowledge.
It’s hard to imagine having to use CPR on a victim of cardiac arrest, but the reality of the prevalence of sudden cardiac arrest in America is shocking; more than 350,000 people in the United States experience cardiac arrest every year.
While CPR is typically associated with health care and medical careers, laypersons can too benefit from CPR certification, leverage their careers and even save a life. You’ll be surprised to find that many of these employers often call for their employees to be certified:
Coaches and Athletic Trainers
Child Care Provider
Jail and Prison Personnel
Nanny and Babysitter
Teacher and School Staff
School Bus Drivers
Yoga Teacher, Personal trainer
