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

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.
