Unlike most other CPR/AED online courses, our course was both written and approved by AHA trained U.S board certified physicians. You can feel confident in the quality of our CPR/AED course. Our CPR/AED online course covers the same topics that AHA approved classroom courses trains you on. But, our CPR/AED training and exam is more affordable and more convenient than many classroom based CPR/AED training courses.

You do not require any additional material beside our course work. Our courses are comprehensive and provide you with all the information you need in order to pass your Mississippi CPR, First Aid or BLS certification exam. The course fees include all necessary materials.
That is not a problem if you don’t pass the exam the first time. You can take the test as many times as you like.
You have multiple options to take the exam, you can print the questions and take the exam offline and when completed you can input the answers. You can take as much time as you need to.
According to www.americashealthrankings.org, Mississippi was ranked the second-poorest in overall health in 2012 and has remained the same since 2011. The life expectancy is 74.81 years, which is the lowest life expectancy by almost 4 years, as compared to the national average of 78.7 years.
When it comes to public health funding, Mississippi is ranked 33rd, spending an average of $63 per person. It is ranked 42nd in insurance with 18.6% of the population living without insurance. Although poorly-ranked, this indicates a decrease from 19.2% in 2011. Mississippi is also the second most poorly-ranked in the availability of primary care physicians, with only 81.4 PCPs per 100,000 residents, considerably lower than the national average of 121.
Approximately 21.2% of adults in Mississippi are living below poverty level (2010). The percentage of children living in poverty is 24.4%, ranking Mississippi 41st in the country in this category. Since 2000, the rate of adults living in poverty has increased 1.3%, while the rate of children has actually decreased over 9% since 2011 alone.
Due to the highest prevalence of sedentary lifestyle, Mississippi is the poorest-ranked in the country in obesity, with 34.9% of adults (approximately 780 thousand people) considered obese. This number has been steadily increasing since 1992, with a more than 7% in just the last decade. With a ranking of 39th, Mississippi has a moderately high percentage of obese children (15.8%). Suggesting a correlation between obesity and increased prevalence of diabetes, it is no surprise that 12.4% of adults (over 280 thousand people) in Mississippi are living with diabetes, ranking it the poorest in the country in yet another category. The incidence of diabetes in adults has increased more than 3% in the last decade. The incidence of stroke is 4 %, which is appreciably higher than the national average of 2.1%.
With a high prevalence for smoking, 26% of the population smokes, ranking Mississippi 46th in the country. This percentage has remained relatively stable in the last decade. Despite a poor ranking for smoking, statistics indicate that the prevalence for binge drinking is the 6th lowest in the country, with only 14.2% of the population participating, however this marks a 4.2% increase since only 2011.
With the strengths being a low prevalence for binge drinking and a low rate of violent crime, Mississippi is still struggling with a high prevalence for sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking and diabetes as well as low availability of PCPs.
