COURSES - Online Learning

We offer a variety of our courses with an online option. Most of our online courses follow a blended learning approach. There are a few courses that are completely done online. Please read below for more info on these flexible options.

** Please note, online courses and skills testing courses are not eligible for a refund. Please contact us if you are unsure of what course you need. The course must be completed on a desktop computer or laptop (not a tablet or smart phone).


Online Courses offered through Blended Learning include: BLS Healthcare Provider CPR (Initial or renewal), Heartsaver Basic First Aid (with or without CPR/AED), and Heartsaver Basic CPR/AED

These online courses follow a blended learning approach where students first complete a large part of the training online at home in their own time. Once the student has finished the online course, they will contact us (by phone or email) to schedule the skills testing portion of the training. Skills testing will take approximately 30-60 minutes depending on the course selected. Skills Testing is offered every week throughout the week and can be scheduled to fit the participants needs. Blending learning options offer a convenient alternative to classroom training. The online option for CPR is available for first time students and those renewing their certification, however, we highly recommend the full in-classroom course for first time students. Please see below for instructions on completing an online course.

These courses are done completely online and do not require a separate skills testing. These courses may offer continuing education credits for your medical certification (see course details below for further info).
