You have a choice of two CPR/AED classes to fit your particular needs. You’ll find an explanation of what is meant by “adult,” “child” and “infant” below.

  • Adult and Child CPR/AED training

  • Adult, Child and Infant CPR/AED training (a.k.a. Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED training)

Of these options, only the Adult, Child and Infant CPR/AED class fulfills the State of Minnesota Rule 3 CPR/AED requirements for child care workers.

These classes do not, however, include First Aid. But that option is available. (Click here for a money-saving CPR/AED/First Aid combo.)

While these classes do not fulfill the requirements for most health care providers and safety professionals, they are acceptable for most other professions. Please read class descriptions and check with your employer, school or professional organization before registering, so you’re certain that this class will meet their requirements.


Other Class Options


Wondering why you should take CPR? Don’t take our word for it. Here is what the prestigious Mayo Clinic has to say about it. (Link will open in a new page, so you don’t lose your place on the CPR-Twin Cities site.)


Definitions of Adult, Child and Infant

To ensure that you get the proper training for the populations of greatest concern to you, please read these definitions:

  • An “adult” is considered to be someone approximately 12 years or older (or beginning at the first signs of puberty).
  • A “child” is considered to be someone approximately 1 up to 12 years old.
  • An “infant” is considered to be someone younger than 1 year old.

Combined “Child and Infant CPR” classes are also known as “Pediatric CPR” classes.

Review / Recertification Classes

In review classes (also known as recertification classes), all students will be required to show proof of successful completion of the same CPR Twin Cities class (or its American Red Cross or American Heart Association equivalent) within the past two years. (There is a grace period of 30 days.)

Class Size

The prices listed listed on this page are for a minimum of six students per class. To maintain our high standards for exceptional personal attention, we limit our CPR/AED (cardiopulmonary resuscitation/automated external defibrillator) classes to a maximum of 10 students.

Booking and Paying for a Class

Once a date is chosen, and a number of students is determined, a letter-of-agreement will be emailed to you. To confirm your class, the agreement needs to be signed and returned, along with your payment (in full). Payment may be made by check or through PayPal (using either a PayPal account or any major credit card, with a 3% surcharge).

If unsure about the number of students who will be attending, you can pick a number as low as six as your minimum for the agreement, and then add more later (but no less than two days before class, so we have time to prepare). The price of those additional students is slightly higher ($5 per person). Payment for any additional students is due on the day of class.


Our per-student pricing for this class is already discounted for groups. In addition, there is a 10% discount off that discounted price if you:

  • book and pay for training for at least 25 students (in more than one class session, to maintain the per-class maximum); or
  • book and pay for your class at least 60 days in advance.

Since short-notice classes are more complicated to coordinate, there is a 10% surcharge on classes scheduled and paid for less than 10 days in advance, and a 20% surcharge on classes scheduled and paid for less than five days in advance.


While delivery is free for most classes held in Minneapolis, St. Paul and their first-ring suburbs, there is a minimum delivery charge of $45 per session for classes held beyond the first ring of suburbs. Due to time- and labor-intensive logistical factors in high-density areas, there is a $100 delivery charge for CPR classes held in downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. (Discounts and surcharges have no effect on the delivery fee.)
