HOW IT WORKS

Nationally Accredited Online CPR Certification

USCPR Online provides students with an online approach to CPR, First Aid, and BLS certifications. We take the best feature of common classroom courses-access to top medical knowledge and present it to our students in an online and accessible format. Our online courses offer low cost, flexible scheduling, and 24/7 access while maintaining the highest attention to presenting industry standards in accordance with the latest medical research findings.

Our course authors combine years of medical experience as board-certified doctors with the latest publications from organizations like the American Heart Association, the International Red Cross, and OSHA. In addition, we use professional educators to support these medical practitioners in developing effective study materials. The result is a well-organized, easy to follow, up-to-date, and complete online study guide that prepares students for our online certification exam and two years of internationally recognized health care certifications.

We have certified over 1,000,000 students in the past 11+ years

Step 1 – Select your course and Sign Up

Start by choosing the certifications you want. This may come from personal interest, volunteer obligations, or employer mandates. Whether you want or need the certification, USCPR Online can get you there. Courses offered by our association include: 

CPR/AED Certification for Community and Workplace
CPR/AED Certification for Healthcare Professionals
CPR/AED/First Aid Certification (combination course)
Basic First Aid Certification
Basic Life Support Certification 


Each course is designed to meet the needs of someone with limited medical experience or a seasoned professional. Our Certification Courses are valid for initial certification or recertification to replace an expiring certificate. It does not matter who issued your original certification. 

Once you have selected the certification course that suits your needs and interests, it's time to register for the course. Just sign up, and fill out all necessary information. Then, complete your registration by paying for the course. You will receive access to the online coursework, including study guides, practice exams, and certification exams.

Step 2 – Learn


Once you have completed the registration process, your username and password are activated. This gives you 60 days of unlimited online access to our study guides, practice exams, and certification exams. You may log in and out of the study guide as your schedule allows until you are ready to take the certification exam. Some students choose to earn their certifications in one day, usually in less than two hours, while others spread the process over many days, working for a few minutes at a time. Either way, you set the pace for your learning. You can log into the course from any web-enabled device at home, office, or internet hot spot.

Step 3 – Take the Exam

Our certification exams combine 25 multiple choice and true/false questions. There is no skill demonstration or hands-on testing required. You do not need to travel to an examination facility to take the test nor meet face-to-face with an instruction. Everything is completed online. Exam questions come directly from our online study guides and are a straightforward assessment of your understanding of the medical information presented in the course. Students need to score 80% or higher on the certification exam to earn a two-year certificate.

It's not the end of the line if you score a 79% or lower on the certification exam. All you have to do is return to the online study guide and review the topics that you missed. Then, once you feel comfortable with these areas, return to the certification exam and take it again. You are eligible for unlimited exam retakes as part of your registration fee.

Step 4 – Receive Your Certification Card

Receive your Certification card online and via First Class mail. Once you pass, you will immediately see your digital certification card on your dashboard. The hard copy of the certification card will also be shipped in the mail for free on the next business day. You may print your digital certification card and use it as proof of your certification or recertification until your hard copy card arrives in the mail.
