    Katja I was thinking the same thing with the "disregard the first email" business...

    I think you were right though, she probably made a mistake with the heading and needed to change it because the same email will be going to students in all programs.

    Either way I'm super excited and so happy for all of us who have been accepted and those who have yet to be accepted, LOL!

    Ok, did a little research into CPR courses, it seems like the going rate is $50-$55 not including the book $5-$10. (Enjoy CPR, Pulse and chicagocprnow). I did find one company that does online certification Online CPR Certification & Online First Aid Certification - CPR Recertification Course, CPR Classes - American Health Care Academy for $19.99.

    Please let me know if you find any others.

    Now don't quote me on this but my aunt who is a CNA told me that some fire departments offer the class for free. I never looked into it because I had just gotten my CPR card when she told me this, but it might be worth a shot. She got it at the Elmwood Park Fire Dept. and apparently they offer it twice a year. I got mine for $40, that was the best price I could find. I went to the CPR Associates, both websites are below if anyone is interested.

    CPR - CPR Associates, Inc.


    Oh and I would make sure CCC accepts online CPR, some schools don't.

    Congrats everyone! Can't wait to start fall semester! Also fire department does a great job with CPR classes, though I am pretty sure it is not free.
