There are currently two options of how to receive this training:

  • “blended-learning” classes are:
    • eligible for certification at no additional cost.
    • conducted mostly, but not entirely, online (with the hands-on, in-person portion being held — by appointment only — in the home office of CPR-Twin Cities (in the Highland Park neighborhood of Saint Paul, MN).
  • “online-only” classes:
    • have no hands-on practice.
    • are not eligible for certification.

For both “blended-learning” and “online-only” classes, you will need:

  • a reliable, high-speed WiFi connection.
  • at minimum, a tablet (like an iPad® or its Android equivalent).
    • A full-size computer would be even better. But, to be perfectly clear, a mobile phone screen will be too small to be able read the slides and view the demonstrations clearly.
