The short answer is Yes, you can take cpr training courses online. The Canadian Red Cross and Heart and Stroke Foundation offer online blended courses which combines online learning and in-classroom training to offer a comprehensive experience. The courses covers the same course curriculum and teaches the same skills as an instructor-led course, but divides the delivery of the online and inclass component.
We advise students to be careful when signing up for free cpr courses online. These courses are not suitable for workplace or school requirements as it does not provide hands-on skill component. Courses that are offered entirely online, do not include the opportunity for you to demonstrate skill proficiency to a certified instructor.
