The National CPR Foundation offers online training courses and certifications in CPR, Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC), Basic Life Support, blood-born pathogens, first aid, and the use of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs).
Courses last between 15 and 30 minutes, and feature video modules to demonstrate different emergency medical response techniques. The courses can be followed with a 10-question true-false examination. Those who pass the examinations receive instant certification. Once the exam is passed, users are emailed a certificate of completion, which can be immediately downloaded and printed, and laminated wallet-sized certification cards are sent by mail. Those who have previously been trained in the subject areas can choose to take the exams without the training to renew certification.
The National CPR Foundation’s certification courses are accredited and in compliance with the American Heart Association, the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), ECC, and OSHA guidelines.
Certification through the National CPR Foundation costs between $13 and $25, and group discounts are available. Certifications are good for two years. (Source: https://www.nationalcprfoundation.com/)
