Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my CPR requirements met?

For CPR you must have American Heart Association Healthcare Provider CPR certification. This is the only acceptable CPR certification. The CPR card must be valid through the end of class. Even if you have a more advance or are told it is the same thing, this will be the only one that will get you into the CNA/Nursing program.
