Can I get CPR certified online?
There are no legitimate online CPR certification programs.
However, you can do most of the book work online and come in for a short skills check off!
Most “free CPR certification” classes are also going to be somewhat of a scam. CPR certification through an online, free website is not going to provide the hands-on practice needed to become proficient in providing CPR.
