STAR CPR Inc. is a family-owned, approved American Heart Association Training Site, who has been teaching lay rescuers and medical professionals for over 7 years. In 2006 when STAR CPR first opened, we taught an average of 7 students a week, compared to 2012 in which we taught over 7,000 students the skills to potentially save someone’s life! We now have locations in San Luis Obispo, Sacramento, and Arizona. We offer a wide variety of AHA courses including basic CPR/AED & First Aid, BLS Healthcare Provider CPR, ACLS, PALS, and ECG courses. We also travel to businesses for private, on-site training.

STAR CPR strives to provide exceptional quality courses at an affordable cost. We pride ourselves in the fact that all of our instructors are medical professionals and continue to work part-time in the field as EMT’s/Paramedics or in the hospital as RT’s, RN’s, or, Family Nurse Practitioner’s.

STAR CPR promises to provide friendly, professional, and quality classes.
