Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Advanced External Defibrillators for Government Employees

Our courses have been purchased, under contract, by the U.S. Department of the Army and NASA .

Purchase this course if you are a government agency or purchasing manager seeking CPR + AED training for employees. Our course has been sold to the U.S. Department of the Army and is considered responsive for purchase by the Veterans Affairs (VA). This course may also interest you if your agency is required to give priority to small-business concerns.

Our online course provides self-directed training that delivers clear instructions and high-quality content to healthcare providers just like any other conventional instructor-led training. This method of training is not new and is an efficient one as stated by AHA*:

"Studies comparing self-instruction or video-based instruction with instructor-led training demonstrate no significant differences in performance outcomes."

This course covers adult, child, and infant CPR.

Course format

This course is offered in in-person group format and online/blended format. All our instructors hold current and valid BLS instructor credentials from the American Heart Association. (Some customers require that our instructors additionally hold paramedic licensure, we can meet this requirement.)

Skill testing

See our CPR skills form here.

This form is completed by our instructor, the students’ company’s instructor or a third party instructor we connect the student with. In all cases, the instructor will be holding current and valid CPR instructor credentials.

The student will receive hand-written documentation of the completed skills check and a copy of the instructor’s eCard. The student will provide this documentation directly to their company’s credentialing department.

This skills check documentation process is significantly more stringent than American Heart Association, Red Cross and all our other competitors.
