WILL I RECEIVE A CERTIFICATION CARD AT THE END OF CLASS?
DO YOU PROVIDE ON-SITE TRAINING?

HOW LONG DOES THE CLASS TAKE TO COMPLETE?
Our Community CPR/AED is 3 hours. Basic First Aid is 2.5-3 hours. Bloodborne Pathogens is 1 hour. Child & Babysitting Safety is 5 hours.

HOW CAN I REGISTER FOR ONE OF YOUR TRAINING COURSES?
Click on the blue button that says Register For Classes, located at the top of this page. This will direct you to our Classes page. On the right side of that page, look for Register Here in red. Click on the date of the course you want to take and you will be directed to our online registration page. If the course you’re interested in does not have a link to register online, such as our Blended Learning options, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you.
DO I HAVE TO PRE-REGISTER FOR THE TRAINING COURSE?
Yes, if you want to attend one of our scheduled courses you must register ahead of time. We don’t take walk-ins.
CAN I PAY FOR THE TRAINING WITH CASH OR A MONEY ORDER?
No, not unless there is a rare exception and it is prearranged with us. Since we require pre-registration online, you must pay via credit card online.
HOW DO I KNOW IF THE TRAINING IS SOLD OUT?
If the training is full the registration page will tell you that it is sold out.
WILL I HAVE FUN IN THE CLASS?
Yes! We keep our classes very hands-on and with a dose of humor. Learning should be fun!
WHAT WILL MY CERTIFICATION CARD LOOK LIKE?
Your card will be an official card from the American Safety & Health Institute. Note: There are a couple of medical agencies which will only accept American Heart Association certification. If you are getting certified for a Nursing program or other medical-related reason, please check to make sure they will accept certification by the American Safety & Health Institute.
WHAT TYPE OF CLASSES DO YOU OFFER?
Community CPR/AED (Infant, Child & Adult), CPR Pro (Basic Life Support for the medical provider), Bloodborne Pathogens, Basic First Aid, Child & Babysitting Safety and Women’s Safety & Self-Defense (intermittently.) Check our Class Calendar for the latest list of courses and to register.
WHERE ARE YOUR CLASSES HELD?
We partner with various businesses around town. Our two main partnerships are with Babies R Us (Town Center and Orange Park) and Christ’s Church on Greenland Road. We often hold classes at other locations as opportunities arise and our locations can always be found on our website next to the course date. We will also come to your location for a private class if you have at least four participants.
DO I HAVE TO BUY A TEXTBOOK FOR THE CLASS?
No. We will provide a textbook to use during class and then when you get your certification card, there will be a link on the back of the card that provides you with an online copy of the textbook that you can download for your convenience.
WHAT HOURS AND DAYS CAN I SCHEDULE A CLASS AT MY LOCATION?
We are flexible, pending instructor availability. Inquire with us at email@example.com and we’ll do our best to work out a date and time that works well for you.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO CLASS?
We basically provide everything. Feel free to bring a snack or meal if needed, depending on the time of day of the class. Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in, and if you are attending class at our Christ’s Church location, dress warmly or bring a jacket because the temperature in the building is often cold. We want our students to be comfortable!
If you have any other questions please contact us. We are happy to work with you to the best of our ability to answer your questions and meet your needs.
