A personal trainer is a fitness professional involved in exercise prescription and instruction. They assess their client’s strengths and weaknesses and motivate them by setting goals and providing feedback. Personal trainer accreditation and certification of competency must be obtained, and qualification standards may vary between different states and countries.
Many states require fitness clubs and health clubs to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Furthermore, these state laws require that their staff must be trained on how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an AED. Therefore, personal trainers, fitness instructors, yoga instructors, or anyone in the fitness field must attend a CPR Training Course and get certified by the American Heart Association (AHA).
The CPR Training School offers Heartsaver CPR/AED which covers Adult CPR, Child CPR, Infant CPR, how to save someone who is choking and how to use an AED. The Personal Trainer CPR Course teaches these health and fitness professionals how to recognize and respond to a cardiac emergency, especially in people who are trying to improve their health.
