What Class Should I Take?
Sometimes it can be confusing as to which class a person should sign up for. This will depend on what type of job you have- or what type of job you are looking for. Typically, if you are in the Health Care Industry (CNA, EMT, Paramedic, LPN, RN, MD, etc.) you will need an American Heart Association Health Care Provider Course.
Here is a list of American Heart Association Courses for Health Care Providers: BLS (Basic Life Support), ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support), PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support).
For those that are not medically trained, the American Heart Association provides the following courses for Non- Health Care Providers. These courses are excellent resources for churches, families, and any person who is not medically trained: Heart Saver CPR, Heart Saver First Aid, Friends and Family CPR and “Hands Only” CPR.
Regardless of which course you take, it is always a great idea to consult with your employer or Compliance Manager in order to make sure that the class you attend will be appropriate for your employment requirements.

Below are some common questions and answers. If you have a question that is not answered below, just send us an e mail or give us a call!
If my certification card is expired, will I still be able to take an “update” or “Re-certification” class?
No. According to the American Heart Association, once your certification card expires, you are not eligible to take an update or re-certification class. You must take the class as if you are taking it for the first time.
Do I need to study my appropriate book and bring it in to class with me?
Yes. Each student is required to have a student book for each class.
Where can I get my required book?
You can purchase your books online via resources such as Amazon.com or www.worldpoint.com
It takes approx. 5-7 days to receive your books
How do I sign up for your classes?
You can either sign up on our website using the registration form, or simply by calling CMR CPR at (877) 338-9286.
How do I pay for the classes?
We require payment for each class ahead of time (unless stated otherwise). You may pre-pay online through our website, or by calling us and making a payment over the phone. We accept all major debit/credit cards as well as cash and personal/business checks.
***Please be aware that if your payment has not been received 72 hours (3 days) prior to the class start, your booking will automatically be cancelled. This will allow us to offer the class to other students, who may be on a waiting list****
Please call or e mail us if you need to make a payment the day of your class.
Thank you for your understanding.
What is your cancellation policy?
Our cancellation policy states that once you have paid for a class you may re-schedule your class for you once FREE of charge (with 72 hours of notice) or you can cancel the scheduled class (with more then 24 hours of notice) to receive a refund of 75% of your initial payment. If you do not show to the rescheduled time you will not be eligible for any refund.
What if I am going to be late?
We realize that folks can be running late from time to time, it’s part of life. If you feel that you will be arriving late, give us a call.
We are able to delay our class start time by NO LONGER THAN 10 minutes. If you arrive (or plan to arrive) later than 10 minutes after the class is scheduled to begin, you will need to re-schedule your class with us. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ISSUE REFUNDS TO STUDENTS THAT ARE UNABLE TO ARRIVE TO THEIR SCHEDULED CLASS ON TIME. Thank you for understanding.
How do I know which class I need to take?
Simply ask your employer what type of certification you need and which entity they recognize. We are also available to help guide you in the right direction.
Do you hold private and/or group classes?
Yes. We are more than happy to provide group classes at your place of business or even private classes in your home or our classroom. Please call us for special pricing; and yes- we offer group discounts!
