How to Get CPR Certified

Onsite training

We come to your facility and train your staff at your convenience.

In metro Atlanta or Augusta, we do ask for a minimum of 8 during the week and 12 on Saturday. For other areas, view our minimum page to learn more.

Participants earn a 2 year CPR & First Aid certification. This meets Bright From the Start requirements in Georgia and Endeavors guidelines in South Carolina.

$25 per person

Blended Online Training

Due to Covid, many offices are opting to do blended online training. This also works great if you do not have enough for the minimum.

  • Classes are done online in a Live Zoom Training with an Instructor.
  • After completing the online class, they will receive a 45-day certificate until participants complete a hands-on skills check.
  • The hands-on portion is done in small groups and takes about 15 minutes per group.
  • Participants earn a 2 year CPR & First Aid certification after skills check. This meets Bright From the Start requirements in Georgia and South Carolina Endeavors guidelines.

$25 a person. No minimum is required.

Skills Checks

After completing your online training, you will need to do an in-person CPR skills check. We have locations across Georgia and South Carolina.    

This is usually done outside in small, socially distanced groups. 

If you would like to host an on-site skills check, there is a $50 fee (total);  this is waived if you have 6 or more people. You can request one here
