Many of the reviews we received for National CPR Foundation were favorable. The site boasts that they "strictly adhere to OSHA standards." Interestingly, it is absolutely free to take the course so there isn't much to lose. Once you have completed the online CPR class, there is an option to pay for the certificate at the end. Certificates are good for two years. The specific course offerings include: Standard CPR/AED ($18.95), Standard First Aid ($18.95), CPR/AED/First Aid ($20.95), Bloodborne Pathogens ($18.95), Healthcare CPR/AED ($19.95) and Basic Life Support ($24.95).
Most of our reviews were for the CPR/AED/First Aid course. Out of twelve people who took the course, eleven said their certificates were accepted and all twelve believed the certificates were valid. The other eight people who reviewed this site said that they took either Healthcare CPR/AED or Basic Life Support. Seven of these eight people reported that their certificates were not accepted, although six believed their certificates were valid. All 20 people said that the site was not the easiest to navigate, but that the material was easily accessible. As for ease of use, 13 of 20 people said it was user-friendly. Seven people said the site was difficult to use or incompatible with their device. The quality of the training was said by most to be in line with what they expected, although most of the training involved links to youtube videos and was not interactive. Customer service was lacking. We tried to contact National CPR Foundation multiple times. 2 of the 5 times we reached out to them, we heard nothing back. The other 3 times took over 48 hours.
