LA Skills Academy 

CPR & First Aid / AED Encino

Mastering CPR, also known as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is vital for saving lives in urgent situations. Enroll in our comprehensive CPR & First Aid training to become certified and proficient in dealing with emergencies involving someone who has ceased breathing or experienced a heart attack.

It's essential for everyone to acquire the skills for this critical life-saving technique, given that emergencies can happen in any setting. When immediate access to medical intervention is lacking, an individual trained in CPR can avert long-term brain injury or even death for someone in distress.


Many victims experiencing cardiopulmonary or respiratory issues meet tragic ends because bystanders, lacking CPR training, hesitate or fear intervening. In these critical moments, any form of action is better than inaction. Join the CPR and First Aid training course at LA Skills Academy in Encino to learn crucial intervention techniques, ensuring you can make a meaningful impact in life-and-death situations.

CPR Training

Learn the correct methods for administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to infants, children, and adults in various critical situations. 


This instruction provides hands-on experience in effective CPR techniques and teaches participants to identify symptoms of cardiac and respiratory arrest, chest pains, and choking. Gain the knowledge to intervene appropriately to preserve the health and safety of the victim, including rescue breathing techniques and the proper administration of chest compressions.

AED Training

When CPR alone does not revive a person, the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) emerges as a critical life-saving option. Professional training is paramount for correct AED usage in dire circumstances. Trainees will learn the appropriate moments to deploy the AED, the method to attach it to a patient, the fundamental principles of its heartbeat correction mechanism, and indicators of its efficacy limits. Instruction will also include integrating AED usage with conventional CPR methods such as chest compressions and assisted breathing.
