eLearning / Online Classes

Due to the COVID crisis Chicago CPR Now is doing Skill’s Checks.  Skill’s Checks are a means to complete American Heart Association classes in a blended format, both in person and online.  Many students are told not to do this training online by their academic institution or employer.  In the past there have been many businesses representing themselves as professional CPR trainers offering this class online.  Yes, this cannot be done solely online.  Students are still required to make an appearance and perform the CPR skills they have learned online.  The eLearning option allows students to watch the videos online then come in and do the skill portions.  This is all done through the American Heart Association and the course completion eCards are the same cards issued to students who take a traditional instructor led class in a classroom.

This way of doing things allows students the convenance of watching these videos in the privacy of their own home at their leisure. After watching the videos students must print the certificate of completion which Chicago CPR Now must collect at the Skill’s Check.

  4. COMPLETE YOUR SKILL’S CHECK

    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 their appointment. Please bring cash, exact change. Our instructors are not able to accept checks, process credit cars, and do not carry change. Students are not able to purchase course completion ecards, Chicago CPR Now must do so. These fees do not represent revenue for Chicago CPR Now.

Locations for your Skill’s Checks:

We are able to do your Skill’s Checks at a variety of locations. Depending on the day you need to do your Skill’s Checks we have instructors in the West Burbs (Naperville, Lombard, Oak Park), as well as locations in Chicago (let us know where you are located). We often are available to meet you at place that allows us to have a brief conversation to fill out some paperwork and do the required skills.

Course completion eCards are ordered by demand. eCards will be issued immediately depending on our supply. Otherwise, as soon as payment is received an eCard will be ordered and issued as soon as the American Heart Association approves the order.
