Is it legite? Would an employer accept it?
No, you need to have in class room practice...This is mandatory for all nursing schools that I know of as well as employers. Costs 75-100 bucks for the specific course for health care workers.
Thank you so much! I am always so busy just looking for a quick way, but thank you again!

As an American Heart Association training site, the BLS for Healthcare Providers online course is recognized by your employer. The online course is equal to the "course video". Once you complete the online course, you would have to come down to the training site to complete the skills portion. Once both parts are complete , you will receive your AHA course completion card.
Just wanted to put my 2 cents in !!
Thank you also! that does help a lot!
All the nursing schools I checked didn't accept the AHA online course. They wanted hands-on training specifically for the CPR for HEALTH CARE WORKERS. Honestly I wouldn't waste the money online and just do it right and it will be accepted everywhere.
Your right about having the hands on portion done. The AHA ( American Heart Association ) BLS for Healthcare Providers CPR Online course is not all online. You may be confused with the other online courses that you complete the course online, and you then print your card. Those cards are NOT accepted by hospitals and nursing schools.
However the AHA BLS online course is 90 % Online and 10 % hands on. The course completion card through the AHA is the same card you would receive if you attended a traditional course.

Yea that's why I wanted to be sure what it was thought of. I believe I would feel better myself if I took a hand on class anyway.

American Heart offers the only online course acceptable by most employers. You still have to do the competency with a live instructor or manikin specially set up for this.
Other online services offer a card only. They are shams, in my opinion. At least one goes to the trouble to make the CPR card look like it came from AHA.
No. And it is not legit. It may look like the card says "American Heart Association" in the top right corner, but it doesn't. Do not be fooled. You need the full 4 hour class every 2 years to stay current. Even better, take the BLS instructor course so you only have to be monitored teaching once every 2 years to maintain the certification....
