CPR certification in Honolulu

CPR training has become quite popular in Hawaii over the recent years, with awareness being raised on the dangers of heat disease and its resulting complications. We have basic, advanced, and re-certification classes available at various schedules through the week. CPR is quite an important lifesaving skill to have, along with first aid. A lot of complications can be prevented with correct and timely CPR and first aid.

Signing up for training

Enrollment is quite easy if you want to sign up for training at Honolulu CPR. There are different methods to sign up for training with us; the most popular way to start your enrollment is on the Honolulu CPR website, with our online application form. The form is available all day (24/7) but entries will only be processed during our normal operating hours. Similarly, you can send your inquiries or details regarding training through e-mail or over the telephone.

We encourage all our prospective students to visit us in person to start signing up as well, so enroll for a training course in person during our business hours.

First aid: Treating a burn

Other skills are also included in our CPR/first aid classes, such as learning how to tie a tube sling to immobilize an injured arm.

All of our basic courses include first aid training for common emergencies that can be managed (primarily) at home. Burns are quite common household injuries, especially for people who do the cooking. If drops of hot oil manage to land on your hand or arm, run it immediately under room temperature or cool (not cold) water. If the burn is not serious, just put burn ointment on the affected area. If the burn affects a larger area, run it under cool water as well but be sure to see a doctor. Your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic ointment and pain medication. If your face, neck, or chest get burned, call an ambulance or be brought immediately to the hospital. Burns like this can adversely affect your respiration, especially if your nose, mouth, throat, and chest are affected.
