Mobile CPR Training to Greater Los Angeles, OC, and San Diego


Happy Swimmers Mobile CPR Training

Happy Swimmers has been serving the Southern California area since 1991, granting over 55,000 people certification cards from Red Cross, American Heart Association, ASHI and the EMSA Authority for Childcare.

Depending on what you need, we tailor-make the Mobile CPR training certification class, without dry details and intimidating testing (for all but Healthcare class, where it’s a 25 question quiz). Our old-school style teaching is 90% learning by doing, 10% lecture. In an emergency, your brain may forget, but your body may well remember. Kind of like learning to ride a bike.

We continue practicing until everyone feels confident of their skills. Before you get your actual card, your metaphorical “certification card” is signed by your own heart’s stamp of approval.

Students time and time again tell us our intention of teaching truly makes the classes flow effortlessly and they understand this lifesaving skill like never before. We look forward to having you try us.



An incredible testimonial of our Los Angeles Mobile CPR training instructor crew:

Good afternoon,

A week ago, Debbie Nate, LaToya Butts, and Katie Harker came to Chaminade College Preparatory to recertify faculty and staff in first aid and CPR. As a relatively new mom, I was also able to ask questions regarding my toddler, which I am grateful for, and has prompted this email.... Continue reading

My 19-month-old Micah had a severe allergic reaction to a Lara bar he was eating 2 nights ago which ended us up in the ER. I began to recognize the signs of struggled breathing and blisters on his face and body and within minutes we were in the ER being looked after. Had I not had that refresher with them, I may not have understood that the moments we had were precious and that he needed immediate medical attention which I would not have been able to provide for. This was his first reaction and I now know that every time it will get worse without his Epi-pen and Benadryl.

Please extend my gratitude to these three individuals, and tell them to keep up the good work, knowing that the knowledge they imparted saved my little one.
