A Skill Check is the final step in the certification process for those that have completed the American Heart Association eLearning course. There is a separate fee for the Skill Check. Our classroom-based courses include both the cognitive and skill modules.
Our classes focus on demonstrating the skills learned. Many classes do not have a required written test. Without the worry of a written test, many students are better able to focus on the skills they need to practice. For Healthcare Providers needing BLS certification, however, there is a mandatory multiple-choice test.
VT SafetyNet runs an efficient classroom, making the most of your time, so breaks are limited. If you have a specific need that requires a break, please contact VT SafetyNet prior to class. At the request of the employer/organization sponsoring the training, breaks can be added. This must be planned and added to the overall class length.
No. Beware of online CPR classes that promise their certification is accepted nationally and enable you to print your certification card immediately. If there is not an in-person skills practice or Skill Check conducted by an authorized instructor, it is unlikely that it will be considered valid by most businesses/agencies/hospitals.
Our certification classes are fast-paced and will demand your full attention. We ask that you leave your children at home. Nursing mothers that wish to bring their infant should call before class and speak to the instructor.
