Do you have a passion for helping others in need? Would you love to make it your career? Becoming a certified CPR instructor may be perfect for you. As a CPR teacher, you will have the opportunity to educate nurses, doctors, EMTs, babysitters, new parents, and young adults in CPR and will have the outlet in which to share your passion for making a positive difference in your community.

What makes CPR instructors so important? Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S., and there are 326,000 cases of cardiac arrests that occur every year. Since the majority of these cases happen at home rather than in a hospital, it is imperative for citizens of all backgrounds and ages to understand CPR so they are prepared to help. Here are a few more reasons you should consider becoming a CPR instructor and why you should make it your career:

  1. Gain a Rewarding Career and do Your Part to Help Make your Community Safer.

Being a CPR teacher is one of the most rewarding careers you could have. Every day on the job, you are working to improve the safety and health of your community at the source: educating its members and showing them how to make a difference in emergency situations, including cardiac arrest, drowning, and choking. You don’t have to be a nurse or a doctor to help save lives; CPR instructors provide the initial training that gives citizens the confidence to save lives.

  1. Train Your Area’s Healthcare Professionals in the Life-Saving Skills They Need.

CPR teachers are just as important to the health of society and the improvement in cardiac arrest survival rates as healthcare professionals. After all, without CPR classes and qualified teachers, nurses and doctors wouldn’t have the training and practice they need. By becoming a certified CPR instructor, you are educating the current and future generations of healthcare professionals and are paving the way to a better community.

  1. Create a Community That is Passionate About Helping Each Other.

Quite possibly the biggest benefit of being a certified CPR teacher is that you have the power to mold society into one that is passionate about helping their fellow community members. The AHA states that 88% of cardiac arrests happen at home every year, so the person who needs saving is most likely someone you love, like a parent, grandparent, sibling, child, or spouse. It can be through your education and thoughtful guidance that saves the life of hundreds of loved ones.

And too often I would arrive on the scene of someone unconscious, surrounded by a circle of people feeling helpless. Sometimes those people would even have CPR training but lacked the confidence and experience to act.

That’s why I started SureFire CPR. Our classes are practical and engaging – teaching you the crucial skills you need to know what to do and feel empowered to take action.
