Why do CPR and first aid instructors need insurance?

Your students could depend on your life-saving techniques in a crisis. A mistake in training could lead to an injury – or even death. It’s vital to secure liability insurance to protect your small business from malpractice lawsuits, training injuries, and accidents. You may also need business insurance to comply with state laws or the terms of a commercial lease.
