    Where are you planning on taking your CPR class? The American Red Cross up the road from me (in Salisbury) is offering it for $110. I didn't realize it costs that much to take a CPR class! Do you know of any other place that is cheaper?

    I'm already cpr certified since I'm a respiratory therapist....we have to get recertified every 2 years. Do you work at a hospital? If so, typically hospitals have education reimbursement or either give free cpr classes to employees....I know CMC does. I didn't realize it cost that much either. I'll ask around; I go back to work tomorrow.

    I am CPR/First Aid certified now, but it expires in July and I don't believe it is health care provider level. I am a HHA and a CNA for Bayada Home Health Care so they may have something. If not I am sure they can point me in the right direction.

    Check with your school - my cc offers it for $40.

    Hi Laurie,

    I just checked on CPR classes thru Carolinas College of Health Science. For CPR renewal the class is $57 and that includes a book and for the regular cpr class, it's $60 with the book. Renewal dates are: 4/25 & 5/16 from 4:00-7:00. The full course dates are: 4/11 & 4/28 & 5/12 & 5/26 from 8:00-1:00. The classes are located at the Community Training Center. The address is 1200 Blythe Boulevard Charlotte, NC 28203 & the phone number is 704-355-5699.

    Also being a CNA where your certification will expire - don't they pay to have you renew?

    The CNA course that I'm taking- my job, CMC, is reimbursing me for that and will reimburse for the recert as well. Is that your question?

    CNAs are not required to be CPR certified at my company unless we are caring for patients under 18 years old. I had to pay for my own certification, which was like $35. I currently do not have any clients under 18. So if my certification would run out it is not mandatory to renew my CPR certification unless I get another client who is a minor.
