Why get your CPR certification online? Because four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home. Because nearly 356,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur on an annual basis outside of the hospital—and the numbers have gone up since the start of the pandemic. And because your loved ones are relying on you.
When earning your first aid, AED and CPR certification, online training is the most convenient way to go. We offer an in-depth curriculum developed by AHA-trained CPR instructors. Our CPR online certification is compliant with ARC, ECC, ILCOR, and LCC-LCOR guidelines.
Our certification card is valid for two years, and it is accepted nationwide and overseas in more than 60 countries. Companies all over the world use our online programs to train their employees. You can get the materials for your courses on any digital device, including smartphones and tablets.
Online CPR courses are ideal for healthcare professionals and others needing CPR and BLS certification and recertification. Our students live around the world — and just around the corner.
In past decades, when online CPR certification was a new concept, both employers and regulatory bodies questioned its efficacy.
However, these days online CPR training programs are widely accepted and have earned their place as a legitimate option for CPR training and certification—for both professionals and laypeople. And in our new pandemic landscape, support for online CPR training has grown exponentially among employers.
In its most recent 2020 guidelines, the AHA restated its support for online CPR training as equally effective as in-person training, based on the most recent research.
There is no certifying or regulatory body that accredits CPR training programs. However, most legitimate CPR training programs base their curriculums on either American Heart Association (AHA) or Red Cross standards. High-quality online and in-person training programs alike work from the same guidelines handed down by these organizations.
Our program bases its curriculum on AHA guidelines, and is developed and taught by a highly qualified AHA-certified instructor. We work hand in hand with state agencies, industry regulatory bodies, and large nationwide employers to ensure that our curriculums meet even the most stringent state-by-state and industry standards.
In addition, our card is accepted by ILCOR, the international group of governing bodies that sets standards for CPR instruction and technique. That means our card is accepted not just in all 50 states, but in all ILCOR member countries worldwide.
Most recently, we have worked to achieve approval from national and state licensing boards nationwide as an option for continuing education. Click here to see the list of board approvals we’ve achieved so far.
We're the only online BLS, AED and CPR certification company with curricula developed by an AHA-trained registered nurse, and the only company specially licensed to offer CPR training online. Meet Dr. Mary Williams, R.N., D.C. --the expert behind our curriculums.
She's a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine with an extensive background as a Registered Nurse and experienced Core Instructor for the American Heart Association.
Dr. Williams holds a director of staff development certification from the state of California, a qualification that requires a minimum of 4,000 hours of clinical practice. So you can be sure our training curricula are based on real, hands-on medical and instructional experience as well as 2020 AHA guidelines.
We partner frequently with large employers and organizations to certify groups of all sizes—anywhere from 25 to more than 1,000 employees across multiple states and internationally.
If you’re a health and safety officer, Human Resources leader, or other executive in charge of overseeing CPR certification for a large group of people, we can make your job easier. Online CPR training provides an optimal way to safely certify your workforce in our new pandemic landscape.
With our easy, intuitive administrative dashboard, you can upload thousands of employee records at a single click. You only pay for employees who use the course—or enable each employee to pay for their own. Set up automatic reminders for recertification, and easily see who’s been certified and the progress of each employee.
Perhaps our strongest selling point, however, is our dedicated customer service team. We work closely with large billing and accounting departments to manage regulatory and vendor documentation, and we offer several easy, streamlined payment options.

CPR-Certified.com is one of the first companies to develop high-quality CPR certification programs delivered entirely online. We’ve been in business for more than 10 years, and in that time, we’ve certified over 100,000 people—laypeople and professionals from all industries.
In our last decade in business, we’ve accumulated a lot of firsts.
We were the first company in the industry to offer high-definition video training for CPR, AED, and First Aid. Our videos were the first to be available on mobile and tablet. We’ve always been committed to quality—and our videos have been lauded as higher-quality even than those offered by the AHA.
We were the first company to offer a comprehensive Airborne Pathogens certification. We developed and launched this program under an expedited deadline, within two months of the start of the pandemic, based on CDC guidelines and the expertise of industry and healthcare professionals.
We are also the creator and innovator of the industry’s most professional and durable wallet card—a PVC vinyl printed card that is stainproof, waterproof, and lasts for two years.
We lead the industry in offering advanced solutions for certifying large groups and workforces. We are the only online CPR certification company offering a streamlined management dashboard for managing CPR certification records on a large scale.
All of these reasons and more are why our card is accepted more widely than any other—throughout all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces, and in 60 countries throughout Asia, Africa and the European Union.
And one more thing. Our wallet certification card is accepted by employers and industries nationwide—and it’s very rare for one of our students to have a problem with acceptance. But if you do, we have a 100% refund guarantee. Just let us know within 30 days, and you’ll receive your money back—it’s that simple and risk-free.
