WATCH OUT for On-Line First Aid/CPR "SCAMS"

Buyer Beware! Don’t Be Fooled by Online-Only CPR or First Aid Certification Scams.

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“. ITHIS IS NOT TRUE! 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.

What to Avoid When Shopping Online for Training
Common buzzwords and phrases to look for:

  •  Online CPR cards, download instantly (Not valid in Wa. State!)
  • Download your certification card right after finishing your course

  • No hands-on skills required (Hands-on REQUIRED in Wa State!)

  • 100% online (Instructor led, classroom class REQUIRED in Wa.!)

  • Immediate certificate or wallet card

  • Have your card/be certified today 

  • Nationally "validated", nationally "recognized" = means there is no nationally accrediting or governing body for emergency care training. All courses MUST be "approved" by The American Heart Association.

  • "Full refund if not accepted". Good luck with that! Most of the User Reviews on these websites state that it was very inconvenient, or impossible, to get refunds. Most sites offered "credit for other courses" instead.

  • CHECK, and USE, THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU.

  • Use search words such as "reviews", followed by the name of the company you're considering using.
