Founded to help make communities safer 

CPR Plus was established in 1993 to help expand our local “safety net.” Our mission is to provide the most comprehensive emergency training in the St. Louis bi-state area through friendly teaching, state-of-the-art equipment, and the most current education models. We do it so everyone can feel a little safer and better prepared. 

Trusted throughout the St. Louis region

We’ve certified more than 100,000 people throughout the St. Louis region in CPR, First Aid, and other life-saving skills. Our speciality is providing on-site classes to groups at their location, making certification simple and efficient for businesses and other organizations. We also offer blended-learning courses with an online component, as well as one-on-one training for individuals. 

Classes for laypersons include CPR and AED training, Basic First Aid for adults and children, and Bloodborne Pathogens training. For healthcare professionals, we offer BLS, ACLS, PEARS, and PALS courses. CPR Plus is a registered American Heart Association Community Training Center, and all our classes meet or exceed AHA and OSHA training standards.

Our subject matter expertise goes beyond the classroom

CPR Plus instructors are not just seasoned educators. We’re also healthcare professionals — nurses, first responders, and other providers — who teach from real-world experience in emergency medicine, pediatrics, cardiac care, and critical care. 

Of course, we’re also a group of people who care deeply about our families, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. We care about yours too, which is why we love teaching life-saving skills, and we believe it shows in every class we lead. 

All CPR Plus instructors are proudly certified by the American Heart Association.

A word from the founder and owner of CPR Plus

Hi, my name is Stacy Graff Baehmann. I opened CPR Plus in 1993 with a commitment to serve my community, local businesses, and healthcare providers. My business model for CPR Plus is based on convenience and simplicity for the client. Our training model is based on ensuring every student leaves class confident in their skills and ready to act in an emergency. These standards have never changed since our founding, and I personally work with every client to help uphold them.

I have more than 25 years of experience in the emergency medical field, including eight years as a volunteer EMT. I’ve been involved with the American Heart Association since 1993, and I’m currently a training center coordinator, national committee member, training center faculty member, and volunteer with the AHA. 

I’m so glad you’re here. The CPR Plus instructors and I are excited to help you learn how to save lives.
