Online CPR Training

Can you do CPR training online?

Do you want to get certified but simply cannot find the time? Is it time to renew your certification? Did you know that you can easily complete online CPR training online and at your own pace or schedule? Online courses give individuals who are seeking their online CPR certification the opportunity to do so at their own time. Some online courses are completed entirely online whereas other courses offer ‘Blended Learning’ opportunities. A blended environment allows students to demonstrate their skills in front of an instructor and lead to a higher level of certification.

How do online CPR classes work?

CPR classes that are carried out online give students access to review materials and videos as often as they may like. Modules and videos can be accessed from a variety of different devices and at any given times. This makes it easy for students to achieve their CPR certification at any time and at their own speed. Materials for learning can also be seen at any time which gives students the ability to go back and review the information they previously studied at any given time.

Is online certification acceptable and valid?

Not all CPR training opportunities are made equal. Certain jobs require more extensive training and a higher level of certification may be required in order to fulfill the needs of certain positions and places of employment. For example, health care workers often need training specifically designed for individuals working in the medical field. ‘Blended Learning’ gives students the opportunity to achieve these more extensive certifications.

What is the difference between blended classes and online classes?

Online classes are completed entirely online. Students are never required to demonstrate their skills in-person and in front of an instructor. This type, of course, may not allow for students to get the certification that is necessary for certain workplaces or environments. In contrast, blended classes give students the opportunity to study in a classroom with an instructor as well as online. This gives students the ability to review topics online at any time and can make learning much easier.

      Hello Linda,

      There are two ways to register for a blended CPR course:

      1. Sign up for the eLearning portion on our website, complete the course, and then reach out to a local First Response instructor/training facility using our instructor search or training facility search.

      2. Reach out to an instructor or training facility to sign up for both the online and in-person portions at one time using our instructor search or training center search.

      The price for just the online portion on our site is $27.95. The price of the in-person training or buying both portions through an instructor or training facility varies depending on region, instructor experience, class size, etc.
