Background: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation [CPR] is an emergency medical procedure for the victims of cardiac arrest, which should be performed by skillful individuals. This study was done to assess the level of knowledge in 35 CPR staff of a hospital which was affiliated to the Golestan University of Medical Sciences. Materials and Method: Simple Sampling with a before-after method was applied. Data Collection was done by a questionnaire of 43 questions about knowledge which was completed by the participants before and after teaching and after a two-month duration. Educational lectures were held by expert professors. The data were analyzed by the Wilcoxon test. P-values less than 0.01 were considered to be significant. Results: The mean age was 37.16 ± 6.21 years. The results showed that the level of knowledge had improved to 85% after training and to 87% after two months [P-value<0.01]. Conclusion: It is suggested that a periodic training of practical skills should be scheduled for these staff.
