Are you a child care provider who needs a CPR or First Aid course?

As a child care provider, you recognize the need of providing competent CPR and First Aid to the children under your care.  In addition, there are licensing requirements that you must comply with in order to continue operating your child care facility.  We are able to schedule a course at a time that meets your needs and will fit with your current CPR or First Aid expiration date. Because of our size and structure, we are also able to tailor the course to the specific health concerns of the children under your care.  If you are caring for children in your home or you are directing a child care center, we are equipped to provide CPR training to you and your staff.  Please call us at 651-771-7778 or at to schedule your CPR and/or First Aid course.

What type of class do I need?

Posted on July 9, 2013 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The American Heart Association offers different levels of CPR, depending on the purpose of the instruction.  The most popular courses that our clients inquire about are Heartsaver CPR AED and BLS for Healthcare Providers.  Here is a description of both for your interest.  As always, if you have any questions on what type of class you need, please contact us at 651-771-7778 or e-mail us at


  • Heartsaver CPR AED is a general CPR course for non-healthcare professionals that equips a person to perform CPR for a family member, friend, child (at home or in a child care setting) or in a public environment.  It also trains a person how to relieve choking and how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). Individuals in this category are many times amazed at how much they learn in their class and that they can make a difference in sustaining or even saving a life.  Some enjoy it so much that they get together as a group of family and friends for CPR instruction.

  • BLS for Healthcare Providers Course assists healthcare professionals to attain the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.  It also trains these professionals to perform multi-rescuer CPR.  Once you have taken one BLS for Healthcare Providers class and have an unexpired CPR card, you qualify for renewal of that certification.   Please contact us to find out about special pricing for renewal certifications.



Why be CPR certified in-person versus online?

Posted on July 9, 2013 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Even though you may be certified by an online CPR organization and have taken the written test, you will still need your skill set to be evaluated by an instructor in person. Train 2 Sustain, LLC offers thorough in-person instruction even for small classes and on short notice. We adhere to current American Heart Association guidelines and provide complete certification cards valid for two years.
