Default CPR Classes

I need to re-new my CPR/AED certification and i was researching online to find a local class when i stumbled on this website, www.cpraedcourse.com, that offer online CPR Classes. You get to take the class from your home at your own pace and can immediately print you CPR Certification. but has anyone heard of this before? This is all new to me

The only on-line courses that I've seen accepted by my workplaces require a brief live session to demonstrate skills. I would check first, if I were you, with whomever you have to satisfy.

You have to be careful. My employer will only accept the online CPR class from the American Heart Association.

I would be surprised if it was accepted at all here. Each of our hospitals require you to demonstrate to them each year to pass your competency. They teach you (as the standards change every four years) and then test you a few days later.
