Alright, I am a nurse, nursing professor as well as a BLS instructor for ASHI, AHA and Red Cross.

I understand that taking a CPR, etc course may seem tedious (especially if required every two yrs), and money/time can be an issue for individuals.

The issue here is, legality, and accreditation, both lacking with this org.

You NEED a real certificate from AHA, ASHI, Red Cross after the course to proof to school, employer, etc that you understand and can perform CPR, first Aid, etc. Not a printed out certificate made from a word document computer program. And NOT MAILED, all cards are ecards these days, so you get instant accreditation sent to you after course completion.

Watching a webinar without a board licensed medical professional will get you in legal trouble, especially if you perform CPR, 1st Aid, etc, and pt is harmed - the Good Samaritan law will not protect you if pt, family or observer seeks litigation and you cannot provide accredited documentation for court.

So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE protect yourself legally and take a legitimate class run by a licensed instructor.

If you are hard up on cash, look for a community class at your local fire department or ask for employee assistance. (Fyi, in Seattle, Microsoft, Amazon, Hilton, Sheraton, Seattle Symphony, Facebook . . . All these companies contract through local nurses and all pay their staff for the training time and course costs.) So talk with your employer for financial assistance if needed.

Be careful online, there are predatory websites out there just waiting to bait you in.

NOW, Go Save a Life!
