We are a non-profit educational training organization serving Central Floida. We provide various certification trainings as well as non-certification trainings.

Why do I need to purchase a resuscitation mask? 

The use of a resuscitation mask is a preventative measure implemented to protect students from the potential transfer of bacteria from the manikin to the student and is required by the American Heart Association and the American Health & Safety Institute. This is how Citizen CPR is assisting in the mitigation of Covid-19 and the Delta-Variant.

What is the difference between a Covid mask and a resuscitation mask? 

Resuscitation masks are specifically designed to practice the safe delivery of rescue breaths. The mask includes a one-way valve and a built-in fiber filter for added protection. Covid masks are worn as a barrier to prevent the spread of respiratory droplets.
