Common First Aid Certification Questions:

What is First Aid Certification?

A First Aid certification demonstrates that you have been able to perform First Aid Skills up to a standard set by the certifier. The American Red Cross and American Heart Association are the two largest and most widely accepted certification providers. Key CPR is a licensed provider of Red Cross Certifications. A CPR and First Aid Certification is required by many employers to prove competence in important life saving skills and is also required by law for some jobs.

How Do I Get First Aid Certified?

Getting First Aid Certified is easy.
1. Book a class with a training provider like Key CPR
2. Take the class
3. Meet your course objectives
4. Receive your digital certificate

How Long Does a First Aid Certification Last?

The American Red Cross CPR and First Aid certifications that Key CPR offers are good for 2 years.

How Long Does it Take to Get First Aid Certified?

The time it takes to complete the Red Cross class depends on the training you choose and whether you are taking the classroom only or blended learning option where part of the class is completed online and part of it is completed in-person with a qualified CPR Instructor present.
For example, the First Aid class will take about:

Classroom only – 4 hours and 12 minutes

Blended Learning – Online 1 hour and 5 minutes (completed via the internet at your convenience) plus 25 minutes of in-class instructor led skills learning with manikins.

What About Certifications For CPR and First Aid Online?

Online only courses can be found all over the internet. Most employers do not accept certifications unless they have an in-person component. Practicing on a proper training manikin is the closest you can get to performing CPR for real. It is a vital step to ensure that you can perform in a real-world situation. Most employers do allow for blended learning, which consists of part on-line and part in-person classes which are offered by the major training providers like Key CPR. This solution is the best fit for most people by allowing them to take most of the class from the comfort of their own home and get the hands-on skills taught and tested in-person under the watchful eye of a licensed CPR instructor.

If your employer is subject to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, then OSHA standards do not accept online-only certifications for employees that are required to have CPR training.

Many employers accept only a certification from the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association. These organizations have the most widely accepted certification programs. They cannot be obtained by online-exclusive training but can be obtained via blended learning options.

It is important to check your employer’s requirements before signing up for any training course.
