First Aid CPR Training Course & Certification


First Aid and CPR training by Prime Medical Training equips you to save lives in your community, workplace, and home. Our course will prepare you to provide basic medical assistance to patients when emergency situations arise.

This course teaches lifesaving skills from CPR to choking relief and first aid care. You will learn both theoretical knowledge and practical applications during our face-to-face classes held at one of our convenient Training Centers.

Each of our CPR and First Aid classes are facilitated by our certified and professional instructors. Upon successful completion of the course you will be issued a First Aid and CPR Certification that is nationally recognized.










What’s Covered in the First Aid and CPR Training Course?

Our CPR and First Aid course equips you to save lives by teaching you how to administer CPR, help in choking emergencies and administer basic first aid to people anywhere- in the home, workplace, or public.

What To Expect From Your First Aid CPR Training

As a student in our First Aid and CPR training classes, you can expect to interface with an instructor, watch high quality videos, and perform hands on practice of the skills. This course is designed for anyone and does not require prior medical knowledge or experience. We can help anyone gain a basic understanding of life saving skills and feel confident in their ability to help others in an emergency.

First Aid CPR Training Tests & Certificates

Our certified First Aid & CPR instructors will test your practical skills. In this course there is no written exam. Within one business day of your training, you will receive your First Aid & CPR Certification if you complete the course successfully. 


Yes and no. Any class that is completely online is generally not accepted by employers as OSHA and state requirements mandate hands on training.

However, if you take an online blended class where part of the course is done online, and then you perform your skills in front of an instructor, that is a legitimate way of getting your CPR and First Aid certification online.

Yes. The AHA online blended learning class is nationally recognized and widely accepted. In addition to the First Aid class online, students need to complete a hands-on skills session.

After completing the CPR training online and the skills session, students will receive a First Aid certification.

Yes. First Aid classes can be taken as a separate module from CPR.

First Aid is the care given to someone who has suffered sudden illness or injury. The goal is to preserve life either by fixing the injury or getting the person to a higher level of care.

Technically, CPR is part of First Aid care. However, in terms of courses, they are generally considered two separate things because of how much information and practice is involved in CPR alone.

Being First Aid certified means that a person has been trained in the past two years to provide basic care to the most common and/or life-threatening sudden illnesses or injuries.

After successfully completing a First Aid class, a student should be issued their certification card immediately after the class but no more than 30 days after the class. The card may be a traditional paper card or be an eCard sent via email. We send our cards within 24 hours of the class.

We wrote an article about getting a replacement card. Those who initially received an eCard via email can login to the AHA and retrieve it. If you initially received a traditional paper card, you will either need to contact the instructor who taught your class or the training center the instructor was aligned with at the time they taught your class. You may be charged a fee for replacement paper cards.

Prime Medical Training offers local CPR classes at their offices and they travel to student’s locations. Search Prime’s class registration page to find upcoming classes in your location.

No. Students are no longer required to take a test in order to obtain a First Aid certification card. This is a change that happened when the 2010 CPR guidelines were released.

First aid classes typically cover a wide range of ways you can assist a person who has been hurt. Meanwhile, CPR classes focus on helping a person who is undergoing cardiac arrest.

A CPR and first aid certification typically last for two years.

Although OSHA does not state who can provide CPR training, they emphasize that getting it online is insufficient.

We highly recommend our face-to-face CPR First Aid classes at our Training Centers. Nevertheless, we also offer you the option for online-blended learning for your convenience. You can choose from multiple course dates that are available every week.

Our AHA-recognized First Aid CPR Certification is valid for two years up to the end of the month when the course completion card was issued. You have the option to renew your certification before the end of this period.

Prime Medical Training offers First Aid CPR Training sessions at our professional medical training centers in Tennessee. You can choose from three different locations in the state: Knoxville, Johnson City, and Memphis.

It is technically possible to fail a First Aid course since certification has certain requirements. However, rest assured that our First Aid CPR classes are designed to impart basic skills in a simple way to increase your chances of passing the course.
