Introducing SUMO™ — the Single Use Manikin Option. It’s an American Heart Association-compliant CPR skills session for becoming CPR certified entirely from home. Learning CPR online isn’t a new thing, but the fact that you can also complete your skill evaluation with a manikin from home is a very new thing, and it meets American Heart guidelines!
The SUMO kit is simple, but cleverly built. It’s made with a foam head and a cardboard body, and it’s connected by a plastic bag airway. You are able to see the chest rise and fall when performing breaths, and it does everything a normal manikin does. A “normal” manikin is often in the $100-$200 range, while SUMO costs between $25.00-$45.00, depending on your CPR level.
Here’s how it works:
- Watch the CPR training and take the cognitive test online
- Complete the skill evaluation portion via web conference with a certified instructor from home or any location with wifi
- Print your certification card immediately or wait for it to arrive by mail
