    How long does it typically take to complete an online CPR / first aid course and get certified?

    How long it takes an individual to earn their certifications depends on the program and how quickly they learn. Regardless of what kind of learner you are, our program allows you to take as long as you need to earn your first aid training certification.

    Online and blended learning programs for skills such as CPR AED, Basic Life Support and first aid are designed to be flexible. You can start and stop the video, take notes, replay and review sections, and pause the program whenever you want. How long it takes you to get through the training depends entirely on the individual.

    There's roughly 45 minutes of videos to get through, so courses can be completed just as quickly if needed. Or take your time to pause, rewind, and review whatever material you'd like. With our courses, you can learn your way.

    Why Earn Your Basic First Aid Certification Online?

    Great question. Here are a few good reasons:

    • Approximately 2.2 million people die from workplace-related illnesses and injuries each year. 
    • Accidental injury is the leading cause of death in the US for those younger than 44.
    • Every day in the United States, 15 workers die from on-the-job injuries.
    • Approximately 1/3 of all serious injuries occur at home in the U.S.; and about 20% of injury-related deaths occur at home. 
    • According to OSHA statistics, approximately 2.9 non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses took place in 2016, including 892,300 cases that required employees to take time off work.

    Many workplace injuries and fatalities are preventable—and they cost a great deal, both to employers and employees. According to the National Safety Council, unintentional workplace injuries cost more than $127 million per year to companies, and an average of $980 per worker. With basic first aid training, you can avoid someone from your workplace becoming another statistic.

    Some of industries with the highest rates of workplace injury include:

    • Construction 
    • Transportation
    • Agriculture
    • Professional and business services
    • Government
    • Manufacturing
    • Mining
    • Wholesale and retail trade
    • Hospitality
    • Education and healthcare

    In industries like these, the need for someone on-site with a valid first aid certification is clear. But first aid training is a good idea no matter where you work. Having someone at work or at home who is first aid certified can mean the difference between life and death.
