The Pitfalls of Local CPR Training vs. Online CPR Training

Taking classes online is the fastest and easiest way to receive your CPR certification or recertification. Online learning is ideal for health-care workers or other busy professionals who do not have time to attend local CPR training classes. Just like many local first aid courses, our classes are taught by professional, AHA-certified instructors. You’ll receive the same level of training as you would with local classes but with the convenience of learning at your own pace.

The Benefits of CPR and First Aid Training

There are many great benefits to becoming CPR-certified. Eighty-eight percent of cardiac arrests happen while at home, making early administration of CPR absolutely necessary for survival. Choking, heart attacks, and severe allergic reactions are some of the top reasons to administer CPR. After a person stops breathing, they only have four to six minutes before brain damage or death will occur. Being skilled at CPR means that you could easily save someone’s life in the event of an emergency.

Online vs. Local CPR Training

At CPR Certified, we offer a variety of first aid and CPR training courses to fit your schedule. Unlike local CPR and first aid classes, with our program, you can study at home on your own time. You can also take the test at any point and retake it if needed. Our curriculum is taught by AHA-certified instructors and is widely accepted among health-care employers. Becoming certified is easy: After passing the test, just print your certificate. That’s it! Certification is valid for two years and is accepted nationwide and in more than 60 countries.

Online classes are much more convenient than traditional local first aid courses. We understand that as a busy professional, you want to become certified as quickly as possible. Our online programs are perfect for those who need to quickly update their certification. With our large collection of instructional videos, you can skip the subjects you know and take the test as soon as you’re ready. This eliminates time spent wasted in physical classrooms revisiting subjects you have already mastered. Our courses are specifically designed to be convenient while still providing you with the best in-depth training possible.

Our CPR curriculum is compliant with ECC, ILCOR, ARC, and LCC-LCOR guidelines, and our first aid training courses are some of the best in the business. With local CPR certification, you have to depend on a book and physical classes to learn the curriculum. At CPR Certified, we offer a full suite of videos available for download on your computer, smartphone, or tablet, so you can study on the go.

Why Choose CPR Certified Over Local CPR Certification Classes?

Although local CPR certification classes are great for those who learn better with an in-person instructor, online courses are perfect for those who learn best at their own pace. With online classes, you can watch each section as many times as you need, skip the parts you know, and retake the test if necessary.

CPR Certified’s online CPR certification program has a curriculum developed by an AHA-certified instructor. If your employer does not approve your certification, we offer a 100 percent refund within 30 days! Our curriculum was designed by Dr. Mary Williams, R.N., D.C. She is a doctor of chiropractic with a background as a registered nurse, and she also has spent a significant amount of time as a core instructor for the American Heart Association, experience she draws on to ensure that our curriculum is designed to be thorough and easy to understand. If you have any questions regarding our online training courses, please feel free to contact us at any time. We look forward to helping you potentially save a life.
