How much does your class cost?
 
Our class is 100% FREE! However, you will not receive a certification upon completion. We teach you everything you need to know to save an adult experiencing cardiac arrest.
 

How do I schedule a class?
 
To schedule a class, please email themobilecprproject@uphs.upenn.edu or call us at (215)-746-4631. Be sure to check out our training schedule to find a time that works best for you!
 

How many people do you need for a class?
 
We aim for 10 people or more for each class. We generally cap the class at 40 people, but are willing to exceed that depending on the the location.
 

How old do you have to be to join the class?
 
Generally, we teach anyone 14 years old and up. Younger ages may not be able to properly perform hands-only CPR on an adult.
 

How long does the class last?
 
Our classes are approximately 45 minutes each. The more questions you have during class, the longer the class lasts.
 

What days can I schedule?
 
Check our calendar to see what days we have available. We like to host trainings during the work week.
 

Can I schedule more than once?
 
Absolutely! Check our calendar for availability!
 

What is the training like?
 
The training is an interactive class where we show an instructional video while ensuring each participant is using proper CPR technique. We place manikins on the ground to simulate someone who has undergone cardiac arrest. The class takes around 30-45 minutes.
 

Will The Mobile CPR Project come to fairs/block parties?
 
Most definitely! We love coming to fairs and educating the public! Ask us for more details.
 

Will we need tables?
 
We try to simulate an event where a person experiences cardiac arrest. Most of the time, they are on the ground. However, if you have a medical reason and can’t kneel easily, we will place the manikin on the table for you.

With fairs or block parties, we generally place the manikins on a table and do shorter educational sessions.

 

How far are you willing to travel?
 
Although we try to focus on areas in Philadelphia, we have traveled farther. Email us at themobilecprproject@uphs.upenn.edu or call us at (215)-746-4631 if you think distance may be an issue.
