If you are actually wanting to learn CPR, find a proper class with staff that take pride in teaching these important life saving skills. CPR is one of the most important medical skills that you will ever learn (even for healthcare providers). You should always seek out the best CPR training that you can. You never know when you may need it and I wouldn't want someone doing CPR on me that simply watched a video online or paid a fee and got a CPR card. Don't cut corners on this training even if you think you're just doing it as a job requirement or to meet some OSHA standard. One day you may need it and you'll wish you made the best choice-CPR Choice!

Do you offer CPR Training?

Do you offer group discounts?

The jobs that are most in need of our services are: Healthcare Providers, Lifeguards, Personal Trainers/Fitness Instructors, Teachers/Bus Drivers/Coaches. Private Business, Daycare Staff, Employers with OSHA/Safety Requirements, Scout Leaders & Scouts, Self-employed, and Students.

People call us every day wanting to sign up for CPR classes or to schedule a training at their office. One of the most frequently asked questions is, How long is the class? Our response is usually around 3 hours. Occasionally the other person on the phone gasps and says, 3 hours? My last class was only 30 minutes. This literally pains me. Being an instructor for almost 15 years I know that it is impossible to cover the content thoroughly in that much time; even if I was training a paramedic or ER nurse that uses the skills regularly. There are two main reasons that people take CPR classes: to get a CPR card or to actually learn CPR. Sadly many classes offered will not satisfy both.

Things to look for in a good CPR program:

Most importantly it should have a good instructor! The instructor needs to be knowledgeable and not just able to pop in a video and press play. While audio-visual aids are necessary it is important to have instructor that can answer questions and help guide you through the practice sessions. The CPR instructor should be passionate and enjoy teaching. We strongly believe that it takes a special person to be a good TEACHER and we mentor our new instructors for months.

CPR classes need adequate space and equipment. I recently taught for a group that told me their last instructor didn't bring any CPR manikins. WHAT?!? You must have manikins in order to properly learn the techniques. CPR Choice provides a low student to manikin ratio so time isn't wasted with 3-5 people sharing one manikin. The manikin really is important as it can help aid you to make sure you are pushing the chest hard enough during CPR compressions and that you are breathing adequately to make the chest rise. AED trainers should also be provided during training.

Cleanliness is next to godliness, right? Make sure that the equipment is clean and that proper barriers and masks are provided so you aren't spreading germs.

Our classes are fun and engaging.

When a partner CPR company in another location called us asking if we could help them train 1000 people in CPR and First Aid, it was a proud moment when we had the resources, staff, and skills to mobilize and handle that demand without reducing our regular teaching schedule and without canceling a single class. Whether you need 1 person trained or 1000, CPR Choice will accommodate your needs!

We offer discounts for students, loyal customers, groups of 8 or more, and regularly run specials for a good cause. For example, as of this moment (December, 2014) we are doing a peanut butter drive for Second Harvest and offering a $5 discount on any jars of peanut butter donated. Give us a call and we'll give you the best service at the best price. 865-548-1500

Many employers are required to train their staff (by OSHA or others) in CPR & First Aid; that is why we offer on-site training at your location. These professions may include: manufacturing, construction, electrical staff, and those at high risk of injury. Check if CPR training is a requirement for your facility. Hospitals require their clinical staff to be trained. Obviously doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, firefighters and those that work on the front lines of emergency medicine need to be trained. It is also highly recommended that ANYONE that has a clinical license or touches patients should be certified. This may include: pharmacists, physical therapists, dental assistants, chiropractors, and other medical personnel. Exercise is good for the heart, right? Yes it is! However, it is important that personal trainers and other group fitness instructors learn CPR. Just in case that cardio workout throws you into cardiac arrest, we want them to be prepared. You need to ask yourself if you should be certified. Who needs CPR? Everyone!

We work with thousands of customers and businesses, so that keeps us very busy. But, our drive for CPR training has created the need for us to keep expanding. Check our site for the latest updates and new service areas!

I've been teaching CPR professionally for 13 years and it's my passion. I'm lucky to have the best job in the world and love working with people. We've had the opportunity to train over 10,000 individuals. We have EMTs, Fire Fighters, Life Guards, Nurses, and other Medical and Adult Education specialists on staff to provide you with the best real-world information combined with fun, engaging classes.

CPR Choice keeps a digital copy of your CPR certification and AHA card. If you lose it, we have a way to generate a new card for you. We also have a reminder system in place to make sure your CPR certification doesn't lapse. We'll let you know when the next available class is going to be and provide multiple registration options for your convenience. We are active sponsors in the community and love to engage in charitable events and donate to local causes. Saving lives is more than just a saying, it's our mission!

We started out teaching CPR for a hospital and after several years, it was obvious that there was a need for CPR training that went above and beyond the hospital's ability to provide for. CPR Choice was born and our passion for providing the best CPR training was unleashed!

CPR Choice has been providing Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) instruction to Knoxville and the East Tennessee area since 2005. CPR Choice was founded to provide a source of quality CPR training and certification to anyone including: health care professionals, day care providers, church staff and those needing certification for OSHA.

Our goal is simple: to provide the best CPR training in Eastern Tennessee! We will work with you and your schedule and will even go to your location to get you certified!



Cheryl Smith at CPR Choice has been providing CPR/First Aid training for our organization for about 8 years. She is a pleasure to work with and has provided excellent training to our employees. All employee reviews about her training are always positive and everyone requests that she come back again to complete the training. I would highly recommend using CPR Choice for your training needs.
