The National Safety Council, Nebraska makes it easy to receive First Aid and CPR/AED training. The curriculum meets or exceeds state, OSHA, and the 2015 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC).
The First Aid, CPR/AED online program covers all of the elements of the classroom course and includes a bookmark feature that allows you to save your place in the course. The online program teaches the knowledge portion of the course, clearly presenting learning points using animation, full-motion video, interactive user exercises and real-world simulations. Once the online portion is complete a hand-on skills testing is required. Students who successfully complete the online program and skills testing will receive a nationally recognized NSC course completion card valid for 2 years.
The course can be completed online at your own pace. Please plan at least 4-5 hours to complete the online course plus the skills testing.
