Frequently Asked Questions

What CPR/First Aid/AED class should I take if I work in an elementary/middle/high school?

The adult course trains you for people 8 years of age or older. If you are responsible for children under the age of 8, you should take the Pediatrics course which includes adult/child/infant (Child = 1 to 8 years of age; Infant = 1 year old or less).

What CPR class should I take if I work in a child daycare center or preschool?

You should check with your supervisor at the school or your school nurse. This is not a blended curriculum and requires a minimum of 6 hours of training.

Do you provide a “Healthcare Provider” CPR course?

Medic First Aid B.L.S. is taught on demand. Contact Olivia Carson for availability.

How long should it take to complete the on-line program?

If this is your first time to take a CPR course, it will take approximately 2-3 hours for the on-line course. If this is a re-certification for you, it could take between 1-1/2 hours to 2-1/2 hours.

How long do I have to complete the skills demo check?

You can take as long as you like; if you sign up for a skills demo check and can’t make it to that one, just email Olivia Carson (Refer to staff directory) and we can re-schedule you for another skills demo check date.

Do I bring a proof of completion with me to the skills demo check ?

Yes, please bring the on-line course certificate of completion with you to the skills demo check.

What if I have to postpone attending the skills demo check I signed up for?

Just let us know (at least 24-48 hours prior if possible) and we can re-schedule you for one of our future skills demo check sessions. If our skills demo check class size is 6 people or less, we may have to re-schedule.

When will I receive my CPR certificate and how long is the certificate valid for?

The certificate is valid for 2 years. You should receive your CPR the day after passing/completing the skills demo check session, however, please count on up to a week to receive your certificate.
