Important Note: Online CPR AED First Aid certifications that are NOT VALID as an acceptable form of training for employment or otherwise. 

“They’re everywhere on the Internet: seemingly legitimate organizations offering “instant” CPR or first aid certification for busy people who are required to hold current certification. And it often says right on those websites that online-only CPR or first aid certification is “nationally accepted“. It is not. No major nationally recognized training program in the United States endorses certification without practice and evaluation of hands-on skills. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration  (OSHA) online training alone does not meet OSHA first aid and CPR training requirements.”
