OC Dental Academy
CPR for the Healthcare Provider
Our CPR course is a 4 hours course given by an American Heart Association certified Instructor. This class is a blend of teaching, videos and hands on instruction. At the end of the class, there will be a skills test in order to make sure each student understands the material. This course is non-refundable.
In the state of California, everyone that works in a dental office, is required to be CPR Certified. Additionally, if you are applying to become a Registered Dental Assistant, you are required to complete and show proof of completion of a basic life support course offered by an instructor approved by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.
At OC Dental Academy, our CPR for the Healthcare Provider course meet all necessary requirements.
