What is Bystander CPR?
The term “bystander CPR” refers to lifesaving CPR, AED, and first aid procedures that are performed by a layperson in a public or private setting. Generally, bystander CPR takes place outside of a hospital or medical facility.

Why is Bystander CPR Important?
According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital setting every year in the U.S. A staggering 90 percent of people who suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest do not survive. But when CPR is performed immediately upon cardiac arrest, survival chances double or even triple. Put simply: bystander CPR saves lives!
Free CPR Training with HeartCert
There are many barriers to performing bystander CPR, and lack of accessible training is one of them. This is why HeartCert is offering free CPR training for anyone who is interested.
In these free training courses, you will learn the basics of CPR, AED use, and first aid at no cost. These courses are only informational, and attendees will not receive a certification. (If you need CPR certification, check out one of our other in-person, virtual, or private CPR course options.)
