Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mission Accomplished I bought the "combination" course that had both an online and a classroom component. The online course was effective in practicing the proper sequence of events for administering CPR, but, overall, the online scenarios were more about figuring out the exact spot to place the cursor in order to get credit rather than understanding the big picture. The classroom portion, on the other hand, was certainly more realistic. The hands-on activities were very effective...the PowerPoint presentation, however, not so much. The instructor was clearly just showing us the various slides in order to meet her requirement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what it used to be I took another course years ago at another chapter which was a lesser class but seemed to offer more if that makes sense. In all honesty I will find another course to use when it comes time to renew because i didn't get my moneys worth out of this. To cut costs they no longer print you a card, you have to do that yourself. That is of course assuming you get the completion email and don't have to jump through hoops for it like several of my classmates did. No literature of any kind given out to look back on where as with my old basic cpr class we got that, again another cost cutting measure. Unfortunately i found out too late my school has someone they use who only charges $25 for the same course I paid $85 for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thorough, precise, and convenient The online portion provided a thorough explanation on how to rescue a patient along with various situational examples. The programs forward progress was dependent on my subject knowledge and skill level. The class room was equally as thorough and governed by the students ability to demonstrate skill and knowledge on CPR/AED for healthcare providers. The instructor encouraged questions and an open dialogue atmosphere. He had answers with explanations for all student questions. He spoke clearly and I found him to have a complete understanding of the subject matter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers There were lots of problems with the internet pre course required to take the class online. I have had my BLS for over 26 years, but have never experienced the problems getting through any online education. It took me 3-4 hours or more. The system did not work right. I could have taken the pre test in ten minutes. It was a waste of time to struggle through bad online education and be told you could not show up for class without this prerequiste. It was very frustrating !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Instructor was late My instructor was late. Got off topic a whole lot. I was the only one in the class who had never taken a basic life support class and she rushed through all the material and let us out about 2 hours early. I did not learn anything that I did not already know from common knowledge. She mostly told stories about experiences she had in the field. Got my certificate but did feel that I earned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More Time? Review Booklet? Overall a great course but I would really like to have spent more time on the child and infant portions. There are important distinctions that I have already forgotten. It would also be nice to have a comprehensive review booklet included as part of the class materials rather than having to purchase one from Red Cross separately. It takes a lot of repetition to drill new information enough to react automatically in an emergency situation. I want to be certain that if I have a certificate I can truly be of service if and when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience I did this course before college with a friend In preparation for starting nursing school. I had a great experience in the class and got to talk and interact with other healthcare professionals as well as gear some of their stories as we discussed best courses of action in certain situations. It was easy to fit the time to do this into my schedule because a lot of the new learning parts were introduced on line so I could set aside time to go through it at my own pace and then apply and actually try doing the techniques and procedures in the class room. Overall it worked really well for me and was well organized. I also like that I can go back to the online portion for refreshers nytime I need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Combo Online/In Person Class I took this class as a requirement for applying for jobs in the medical field. I did the half online, half in person class. I did have some trouble with the online part, due to not totally understanding where I was supposed to click on the screen. It was a little frustrating because I knew the answer, but kept getting it marked wrong due to a technicality. So a little more instruction to that would be helpful. My instructor was very friendly, knowledgeable, and approachable. He answered all our questions and took the time to explain everything.
