The Colorado CPR Association believes that CPR training is a very important lifesaving tool based on some of the following facts:
- For each American who dies of cancer, the number two cause of death, three will die from heart related diseases, the number one cause of death.
- The expenditures for medical services and losses in earnings and production have been calculated at more than $40 billion each year.
- Effective CPR saves 150,000 lives each year.
The Colorado CPR Association was incorporated in 1981. We are honored to be one of the American Heart Association’s top Training Centers. The Colorado CPR Association received the prestigious #1 nation wide American Heart Association Training Center award five years in a row. Our Association is a volunteer, non-profit organization whose function is to coordinate training and certification in CPR and First Aid according to the standards of the American Heart Association on a multi-state basis. We offer a number of courses at our office and we can also send one of our qualified Instructors to train a group of students at your location. If you are interested in an Instructor coming to your location please call for pricing and to schedule a date at your convenience.
The objectives of the Colorado CPR Association are to increase public awareness, knowledge, understanding and skills in CPR. The Association serves in a dual capacity in accomplishing these goals by providing:
1. Basic Cardiac Life Support training to individuals and organizations through:
(a) A quality controlled pool of Instructor, Training Center Faculty and Regional Faculty with uniform teaching standards;
(b) And, by providing this pool with the necessary updated materials, equipment, teaching aids and record-keeping facilities.
2. A statewide communications network to promote and encourage cooperative relationships among organizations, institutions and individuals interested or involved in CPR.
