Getting a CPR certification or recertification has never been easier. The American Academy of CPR and First Aid offers free access to some of the most popular, trusted, quick, and convenient CPR certification courses available today. All you need is internet access from a computer or mobile device.

Our nationally accepted courses allow individuals to meet requirements for employment, or simply to ensure emergency preparedness in everyday life. The free online CPR training course is immediately accessible, so you can quickly fulfill job requirements to earn your certification or CPR recertification.

Learn how to use an AED and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid with updated guidelines that follow the suggested recommendations prescribed by the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. You’ll learn the skills to save a life while also reducing the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19. We make it easy to learn, and you can do it on your own schedule.

Access free courses at your convenience

The material is available anytime, so you may begin whenever is most convenient for your schedule. With both efficiency and flexibility in mind, we make it possible to earn your CPR certification or renewal more quickly compared to a traditional classroom or “CPR near me” type of course

The online training is a popular option for people from a variety of professions, including healthcare providers, EMT and first responders, physical trainers, teachers, child care providers, as well as for anybody who wants to learn essential life saving techniques.

Free training designed by board-certified physicians

Learn life saving techniques in a format that allows for quick learning and recall when the need arises and access up-to-date, nationally accepted cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques and protocols. If you want to verify the quality prior to purchasing, you may do so by accessing a course at any time for free.

Learn the basics of cardiopulmonary resuscitation: how to deliver breaths and chest compressions, and how these techniques produce blood circulation from the heart and throughout the body. Beyond the basics, you’ll also gain a deeper understanding of why it is important to perform these techniques properly.

Get certified quickly

The CPR and first aid certification courses are efficiently designed and may be completed in as little as 60 to 90 minutes each. The American Academy offers online courses for Healthcare Provider CPR, Basic Life Support (BLS), First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Adult CPR. You have the option to take any of our training courses individually, or all at once.

One of the many advantages of online training is that you can earn your certification or get it renewed immediately after you pass the test. By contrast, if you were to train in a classroom setting, you would need to plan your schedule around traveling to and from the class. Such courses tend to be more expensive and time consuming. The American Academy offers the same certification and renewal opportunities without the unnecessary hassle.

Receive a wallet card and printable certification

Upon completion you can request that we send you a wallet card as proof that you have completed and passed the test. You will also be given immediate access to a printable CPR certification card that you can use while you wait for your wallet card to arrive.
