AHG’s “Starting a CPR Instructor Business on a Shoestring” can have you running your own business in just a few weeks, with no debt, no franchise commitments, and with only two eligibility requirements: that you hold a current Healthcare Provider level CPR card and you complete the CPR and First Aid Instructor training programs offered by the organization who will issue certification cards to your students.

This is another of several business startups we offer, that makes it possible for you to recoup your investment quickly, within just a few classes (depending on class size and type.) This high profit business may well be both the most fun you can have while working as well as the "easiest money you'll ever earn.” Those are the words used by so many CPR instructors to describe this work-from-home career.

If you are one of the millions of Americans who want to own your own business, we can tell you from experience that teaching certified CPR and First Aid courses is one of the easiest businesses to set up and run.

Training to qualify as a CPR and First Aid instructor takes as little as two days (depending upon the certifying organization’s programs and class schedules, e.g., AHA, ARC or other.) With those certifications in hand, setting up your own business can take as little as one week with our fast-track CPR business training. CPR instructor businesses are among the easiest to set up, run, market and manage.

If you are a homemaker, moonlighter, out of work, or want more time with your family, time to relax, or just extra money, then this may be the perfect job for you. It is even possible to earn money if you are a full-time traveler, RVer or, otherwise, don’t have a permanent home location.


LOW STARTUP COSTS ~ HIGH PROFITS

Initial setup costs can be well under $2,500 for an instructor starter kit that includes equipment, supplies, advertising and training (including the cost of our startup manual and your certifications.)

Initial startup costs can be invested in small increments over time to avoid incurring debt, and you can begin offering services before investing in all of the equipment you will eventually want to have.

Profits range from 57% ~ 79% – roughly double the expectations of a retail business, and with a fraction of the work and no storefront costs.


HIGH DEMAND FOR EMPLOYEES WITH CPR & FIRST AID CERTIFICATIONS

CPR certification sells itself because so many jobs required certification in CPR or First Aid. The demand for CPR, AED, and/or First Aid certification is growing rapidly. Agencies such as OSHA, school systems, health care, day care and many more are all requiring proof of CPR, First Aid, and AED certified training before granting a license or allowing the person to begin work.

Find out why CPR instructors say their jobs are the "easiest income they've ever earned."


HIGH VISIBILITY AND CREDIBILITY

CPR/First Aid Instruction is one of the most legitimate home-based businesses you will ever come across. The American Heart Association has set a goal to train every American in CPR skills. Regardless of the organization you choose for your certification, with this encouragement from the AHA you already have a well-promoted service.
