American heart Association allows you to take the theory portion of the class on the internet but your skills must be verified by an Instructor, I know in my area the only CPR that most healthcare facilities acknowledge are from AHA healthcare provider or ARC professional rescuer.
They are legit, but they still require that you take the skills portion of the test with a real instructor before you can get your card. About a week ago, I saw an ad for a job where the employer specifically stated that an online CPR certification was not acceptable for their position.
Ok i have like a question about what kind of class you need to take. Do you need to take a class for professional health providers or for adult CPR/AED. I signed up for the Adult/AED i plan on getting a job at a nursing home proably first as a new grad. Is this ok or are they going to require that I have the one for professional health providers?
