Student CPR Program
In This Article:
Our mission is to teach CPR to every high school student in the country.
Teenagers are some of the best rescuers we have because of their willingness to help and a general sense of fearlessness. And you never know when you might be called on to help someone in need. By offering free CPR training for teachers to implement in their classes, we have been successful in training thousands of new students in this life-saving skill.
Students are able to train in a controlled group setting or individually at their own pace, during school hours, or as a homework assignment.
What is the cost? FREE! This program is completely free. The only possible expense results from the addition of the hands-on component.
Graduation Requirements by State:
Many states have made CPR a curriculum requirement. These laws vary in the context and extent of the training necessary.
The Student CPR certification-level implementation currently meets and exceeds all known state requirements. Alternatively, schools can typically meet those requirements with a specialized awareness-level implementation.
Choosing A Course Level:
Considering your state requirements, resources, and learning goals, decide if you will be completing an awareness-level or certification-level program. Also, determine who will be involved in training the students. Organizations can choose to upgrade the certification program to a more advanced course that includes first aid or healthcare provider-level skills.
Student CPR is a video-based e-learning course. Students will be introduced to subjects in bite-sized segments that they can pause, rewind, and restart as necessary. The instructor is an EMT-P and has more than 20 years of teaching experience.

How to Sign Up:
To register a school for our StudentCPR Program visit our website at www.studentcpr.com and at the top of the page click on the REGISTER SCHOOL link.
Register by filling out the online registration form. We will then send dashboard access to each educator and any administrators who need oversight through a username and password that can be used to log into the Student CPR website. Training on using the website is given during an orientation course.
After registration, educators receive an online Dashboard that allows them to create digital classrooms, each with different class codes. Example: You create a class called "6th Hour Fall 11". It has a corresponding class code " SCH-353-43-382."
Teachers pass out the class code (example: SCH-353-43-382) to the students in that particular classroom. The students register themselves on the homepage, www.studentcpr.com.
Adding the Hands-On Evaluation:
Note: Students must complete the training and pass the final test with a score of 80% or better prior to completing the hands-on evaluation.
- If teaching the certification program, the hands-on evaluation is held by a certified skill evaluator after the students have completed the online test.
- The evaluator will use the scenario testing sheet and test the students' skills on the manikin.
Note: Awareness-level programs with a hands-on element do not require a certified evaluator or the skills sheet.
- After assessing the students, the educator will mark students as passed in the dashboard and order card stock.
- After passing the skills test, the students will receive a card corresponding to their CPR course (students receive a completion card for the awareness-level course and a certification card for the Community CPR course).
Do you provide the courses in Spanish for the students? The videos are not currently offered in Spanish. We do have a Program Guide with the test key in Spanish for the teachers to use if needed. Please refer to Esther if this is needed.
Why is my student not showing up on my roster (classroom)? Most likely, it is because the student created the account without inputting their classroom code while signing up. Pull up the student's name on the Admin side, and on their user page, it will say 'No Company' is attached. Click on the plus and add the discount code (classroom code) and the student will be attached to the roster.
Why is my student not showing up in my roster if they have already taken the course? Again, most likely the student created an account without inputting the classroom code while signing up. Pull up the student's name on the Admin side, and on their user page, it will say 'No Company' is attached. Click on the plus and add the discount code (classroom code) and the student will be attached to the roster. If the student has completed the Student CPR course or an equivalent course, we can process their course for them on the Admin side.
