Hands-Only CPR On The Rise
As the understanding of CPR has advanced new methods have been created. Most recently hands-only CPR, also known as Continuous Chest Compression (CCC), has become popular. This life-saving technique does not require certification and does not require mouth-to-mouth breathing. According to the American Heart Association Hands-Only CPR, "has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR." To learn more about CPR and AEDs you can visit the Arizona Department of Health Services here.

Traditional CPR Certification
The Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Division does not have scheduled CPR/AED or First Aid classes at this time. We can schedule a class requests for groups of 10 or more. A traditional CPR course will lead to certification - a Hands-Only CPR course will not. Please note that the Goodyear Fire Department is associated with the American Health & Safety Institute (ASHI) for our certifications. Through ASHI we now offer on-line blended courses, take the initial or renewal training in the privacy of your home or office and schedule a time for hands on skill demonstrations.
These courses cover the importance of an Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs). AEDs are very effective at helping people survive in conjunction with CPR.
CPR certification is good for two years and will have to be renewed on a regular basis.
