This study was designed to find effective CPR education methods by comparing and analyzing the quality of Field-Focus Type (FFT) CPR using SimPad and the quality of Video Self-lnstruction(VSI) CPR for the learners. The data collection were conducted from November 28, 2018 to December 5, 2018, on 64 first graders who completed CPR lectures at universities located in G metropolitan city, and analyzed using the SPSS ver. 23.0. The results of the study, Field Focus Type (FFT) CPR showed higher quality of Video Self-lnstruction (VSI) CPR in areas such as CPR total score, chest compressions score, chest compressions dept, chest compressions rate, chest compression velocity, total ventilation score, and Total number of ventilation than that of the subjects. Therefore, using Field Focus Type CPR (FFT) education law was found to improve the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation compared to the existing Video Self-lnstruction CPR (VSI) education method, and it is believed that it can be used as a basic data for cardiopulmonary resuscitation education in the future.
