As fitness professionals, we work every day with people who are stressing their bodies and quite often we may be training may be overweight, out of shape and high risk clients. For this reason, Personal Trainers may encounter emergency situations with their clients and are required complete cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) certification programs. These programs teach trainers how to recognise when a client is having a medical emergency, handle cardiac or breathing emergencies and act swiftly to help a client until professional first responders arrive.
CPR and AED certifications are required by nearly every Personal Trainer Certification organization so you will be required to ensure your hold a valid certificate prior to sitting for your exam and will also be required to provide proof of your valid CPR/AED certificates at the time of renewal.
There are a number of live course providers in Singapore and we recommend you take a look at our CPR Courses provider listed in our directories
