by | Jun 14, 2024

The cost of CPR and First Aid certification training in South Carolina can vary depending on the provider, quality of training, level of certification, and the format. Generally, prices range from $15 to $100 per person, ours is $25.

Our CPR & First Aid Course cost $25 a person and we either come to your facility if you have a group, or we have blended online options that meet all the same guidelines. While we are very affordable, we are affordable because we believe it is our mission to help people know this important material, not because of lack of quality. We do require a minimum number of class participations for in person training, which varies between 8-15 depending on your County in South Carolina, view minimums here. First Response is actually one of the leading providers of training in South Carolina, but we choose to be affordable to encourage more people to get certified. We have been serving South Carolina for over 23 years and have over 1,700 5 Star reviews to prove our quality. 

We also know your industry and states’s needs better than other training providers. We know South Carolina Endeavors guidelines inside and out. This allows us to provide the training you need and not have you pay for things you don’t need. As well as cater our training to your area of work. For example, we have a completely separate CPR / First Aid training curriculum for Child Care vs Elder Care. This allows us to teach the material through the lens of who you work with.

Considerations When Chose a CPR Training Provider

It may be tempting to just go with whatever is the cheapest, however, like everything else you get what you pay for. Keep the following in mind as you make your decision.

  • Make sure the training option meets the requirements of your job. Most jobs require at least the skills portion to be hands-on training. Additionally, some jobs require AED training. Not sure what class you need? Find out here or contact us and we will help you decide.
  • The provider of the training. Some providers offer lower prices than others.
  • Format of training. Online courses are often cheaper but unless they include an in person hand on skills check, then they won’t meet the necessary requirements for most jobs.
  • Level of certification. If you need AED training in addition to CPR and First Aid, that will add some cost.
  • Does the provider help with the admin side of certifications? We are always ready to provide you with a lost certificate if you need it or if you change jobs and need a new certificate, assuming it is still in date.
