Wow, I just renewed my CPR/AED/Child care first aid through heart savers and it was $40 total.

lovemykidstoo I contacted the instructor again because I'm about to send in all of my documents to renew my license. She again said that she gets multiple daycare providers that have not had any issue with the state for the card. If I do find someone in licensing that does not agree, then I can have it certified for $17 more and it will be fine, but she's nearly certain I shouldn't have any problem. I really don't know why they wouldn't accept it since everything they covered in the class was everythign I've learned in other classes.

I have done the online classes and they were valid (I'm in MI), but also required a statement from a certified instructor, that an "in person" training was also done. I used AHA

I no longer do the online classes, I found a very good instructor willing to meet me whenever is convenient to me, and for the price RC charges for one lesson, I get everything: infant, child and adult CPR, FA, and BBP

I normally go to a host site and take a class from the local Ambulance company but they jumped their price from $50 to $80 (all day class, no kids allowed, currently nursing my newborn) and dh needs to go too.
I checked around every place else cost more. Some classes was separate nights for CPR and first aid.
I looked into the online class that op was asking about and that was the cheapest. Plus I would be able to take my kids to the hands on portion and they said it would be less than an hour.

This is the website says about the class

Infant CPR/First Aid
This life-saving course teaches first aid, child CPR and how to help a chocking infant or child. This class is recommended for parents, family and anyone caring for infants or children.
NOTE: This is NOT a certification class.

She said for an extra $17, I can get a certified card if that doesn't work she said, but she's never had anyone come back for one. So crossing my fingers lol
This is what the website says, I considered calling and asking if it would still work

Infant/Child CPR
This is a great course for parents and grandparents. Includes a discussion and demonstration of infant and child CPR, management of a choking infant or child, rescue breathing and hands-on practice. We follow the American Heart "pediatric chain of survival," including injury prevention tips. Please note that this is not a certification class.

This one was $30, the $20 class was farther away.

INSANE. I just paid $160 for a group course, well double that since assistant and I both took it. Our state requires Red Cross.

I forgot, there are some resource centers that will come to you too. Check with your local ISD to see if they have someone.

You call protrainings and tell them you need a hands on instructor, they give names and numbers to their contract instructors. You arrange meeting with the instructor and then pay them too. Depending on the instructor, it could cost more or less money to do this than the way you would normally do it.

If you do the online class, search for a coupon code for protrainings website, I have found a code before.

I have only researched this and have taken the test (passed the test with out taking the class) but I haven't paid. I am due for first aid renewal (due to the new laws) but planning on getting them both done. Just haven't taken the time to complete the process.

DaveA Double check with your licensing. Some states will take the hybrid courses but not a purely online one. The organization doing your training (AHA/ Red Cross) should have a list online of places that do both full trainings and online skills checkoffs. If they don't call your local hospital. Chances are they are a training center.

Same. I have to use AHA Heartsaver online here, though, because all available skills testers do.
06-17-2018 03:14 PM
284878 Here you can do online but then you have to meet with the instructor to do hands on.
You pay for the online class also the instructor too.
But it does save time.
