CPR Anytime is an excellent way to learn the core skills of CPR if you are unable to attend an in-person course. CPR Anytime kits are available for purchase online and contain everything you need to learn the lifesaving skills of CPR, AED awareness, and choking relief in about 20 minutes in the safety and comfort of your own home. CPR Anytime is for anyone who wants to learn basic lifesaving resuscitation skills and does not need a course completion card to meet a job requirement.
There are two CPR Anytime kits available; Infant CPR Anytime or Adult & Child CPR Anytime ($45 each). Information on these kits is available at https://shopcpr.heart.org/courses/cpr-anytime.
For those not interested in the CPR Anytime program, but still would like to know the most basic skills of CPR, the American Heart Association Hands Only CPR Video is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4ACYp75mjU.
