Yes, anyone is able to take the courses. The AHA CPR class that I offer is geared toward healthcare providers due to the nature of the course. CPR can may include physical strain, possibility of cross-infection, and emotional stress. If your physician has recommended that you avoid strenuous activity or limit your activity in any way, you need to realize that CPR is hard work.

Studies have shown that children as young as nine years old can learn and retain CPR skills. Each of the courses offered are AHA "American Heart Association" courses.
