Sign up online. The course I take is the Adult/Child First Aid, CPR, AED, AID at the facility on 2707 State street. I do the one day 9a ~ 3:30pm class and get the 2 yr certificate/card $110.

Yes, Red Cross. I got trained through my employer -- by Red Cross.

If it is for a group (i.e. 10 people), try ernetwork dot com... $65 per student, 2 year certification and they will come to your office!

Years ago when my kids were at The Oaks nursery school, the city Fire Department held a CPR class for Oaks parents, and I don't think it cost anything. I wonder if the Fire Department still does this? If not, it would be a great idea.

Check with Cottage Hospital education department. Sometimes they do classes for nonprofit groups as an outreach project.

What a great question. I should do this.

I would recommend either the Red Cross or perhaps the YMCA.

Funny that you should ask - this is something that we all should know how to do - think of the many people who die while bystanders watch and do nothing either because they don't know how and feel helpless or because they are scared of getting sued (I know, that is pathetic but some operate on that mentality - just like the worms in our government around here). Anyway, CPR training should be offered super low cost. Instead the Red Cross is a complete rip off and it is a money maker for this corrupt organization.

It's good to do the refresher courses, becuause they keep changing the recommended techniques.

7807... wanting something for nothing is corrupt.

Yes, now it's compression only, no breaths. I tried it at the senior fair and I have arthritis in my right hand, so would be pretty useless. Those compressions have to be hard.

Another vote for the Red Cross. You can sign up online. There are online courses, but employers won't (and shouldn't) accept those. It really needs to be done in the real world.
