It’s a common misconception that CPR is best taught by a classroom instructor with hands-on practice and that online training is only allowed if you «get away with it.»
Our online CPR training isn’t a shortcut — we don’t cut corners. We use online training because it’s a better way to learn. The truth is that the traditional classroom isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
That doesn’t mean we discourage hands-on practice though. Blended training (learning online and then practicing on a manikin) is a very popular way that we teach CPR for those who need it.
We’ve even gone to great lengths to invent a new type of manikin to make blended CPR certification more accessible. The difference is that you can do our version of hands-on practice and never leave home.
What good is a course if it’s not accepted? You’re counting on us to not only build effective and engaging training, but also to ensure it’s accepted everywhere, which is why we have a dedicated compliance team proactively seeking out approvals and working on your behalf when a certificate isn’t recognized.It’s because of all these approvals by our relentless compliance department that we can boast a 99% employer acceptance rate across the country. That’s why you will actually see «AHCA» explicitly listed in state policy documents. No other online/blended CPR training company has as many approvals as we do.

Compliance for CPR and First Aid can be complicated. Some state departments publish a list of CPR providers that are approved for licensure. Other states only publish guidelines for approved providers to follow and don’t specifically approve the training. Still others aren’t involved at all and leave the decision completely up to the employer.
Whatever the policy for your state and profession, just know that we’re here to answer your questions and offer documentation that AHCA will satisfy your particular requirements.
While it’s nearly impossible to maintain a comprehensive list of approvals, we’ve done our best to assemble as many of our approvals as possible in our compliance packet.
The quick search tool provided here was created to help you quickly verify whether AHCA has been
approved by your state department or licensing board.
Remember that compliance is an ongoing process. So please reach out to us if you’re unsure about
whether or not you’re approved to use AHCA.
Licensure requirements for CPR vary from one state or profession to the next. And they can change over time. That’s why it’s important to know what is accepted before you get started.
For example, some boards do not require CPR at all. Others are comfortable with 100% online CPR certification for re-licensure. Sometimes blended CPR training is acceptable, while others mandate classroom CPR training.Rather than spend your afternoon navigating your local government’s website trying to find these requirements, you may be able to find the answer to your questions about CPR acceptance right here.
