Over 100 board certified veterinary specialists from around the world collaborated to develop the Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation (RECOVER) evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines. Two of RECOVER’s leaders have designed these courses with the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and students to learn the core veterinary CPR skills needed to increase survival rates in animals experiencing cardiopulmonary arrest.
Choose between our Basic and Advanced Life Support courses or bundle the two for additional savings. Special offers available for technicians, students, or practices with 5+ staff. These comprehensive and highly engaging courses include videos, assignments, and quizzes covering the latest in CPR techniques.
These courses are peer reviewed and offer official certification in CPR by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC). They are endorsed by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS), and teach the most current, evidence-based guidelines developed by the Reassessment Campaign on Veterinary Resuscitation (RECOVER) initiative, making them the gold standard in veterinary CPR training.
