    Email our office at, introduce yourself, let us know which class you would like to do a Skill’s Check for, and  which day(s) you would like to come into the office. Please note that not every instructor is able to do Skill’s Checks. It maybe wise to check your schedule and ours first to make sure they agree.


    When you come to your appointment please have ready the certificate of completion mentioned above and your Skill’s Check fee also mentioned above. We no longer accept these fees online, students need to bring exact cash to our office. Please bring cash, exact change. Our instructors are not able to accept checks, process credit cars, and we do not carry change in our office. Students taking Heartsaver classes need to also bring the $20 course completion eCard fee with them as well. Students are not able to purchase these materials, Chicago CPR Now must do so. However, these fees do not represent revenue for Chicago CPR Now.
