Being Adult CPR and Basic First Aid certified is a standard in the fitness industry and should be a requirement for all movement teachers. This ProTrainings blended certification (half online, half in person) is offered by Rasamaya Founder, Carrie Tyler.

The blended course has been proven to be more effective then the old-school style of hours and hours of classroom time. ProTraining's unique format allows you the convenience of completing the educational portion on your home computer, and the fifteen minute skills portion in either Newburyport  or Cambridge, MA. This course is time saving and also incredibly cost effective as most standard CPR courses cost upwards of $100. Certification is valid for two years.

This course is open to anyone who would like to receive certification.  You do not need to be a fitness instructor to register for this course, and we are happy to come to you to offer the skills evaluation portion at your place of work or community center for small groups. Please contact  to schedule.

How Pro Training started

As a paramedic, training center manager, and instructor for a local ambulance company in Michigan, Roy Shaw recognized that there had to be a better way to deliver CPR training. In his instructor job, Roy watched people fall asleep in his classes and wondered what he could do to help his students get more out of their CPR training. But it was as the first responder to emergencies where the family is asking what more they could have done to save their loved one that he really received the motivation he needed to envision a new kind of training program.

Life Altering Training

It would be futile to tell a grieving family member that they could have performed CPR to give their loved one a better chance of survival. Instead, the solution is to create a better system of training to hopefully prevent this situation from ever occurring. ProTrainings was designed to solve the challenges of increasing skill retention rates and lowering student inhibitions to get involved in an emergency.

The Solution was created in 2003 as one of the world's first Internet-based CPR training programs. In response to customer feedback, other courses such as and were also developed and are being used around the world. While still a pioneer and advocate for online education, ProTrainings recognized there is also a need for hands-on practice for certain occupations to maintain compliance. In response, blended courses were developed to include a hands-on portion to the existing online education. This opportunity led to the launching of and also opened the door to work with and train hundreds of professionals around the country to be qualified skill evaluators.

Blended is the future of CPR training

Blended learning has been validated by the American Heart Association as an acceptable method of becoming certified. This online/hands-on learning hybrid is acceptable across nearly all companies and occupations and is quickly becoming the preferred method to certify.
