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.

Our South Dakota CPR, First Aid or BLS certification and renewal classes are updated every time AHA makes a change. Your CPR, First Aid or BLS certificate will reflect the most up to date guidelines.
Most employers 99.3% in the country accept our accredited CPR and BLS certification and recertification cards. In case your employer does not accept our card, you are fully protected by our money back guarantee.
You don’t have to worry about failing the South Dakota CPR, First Aid or BLS exam the first, or even third, time. Exams can be taken as many times as necessary to pass.

The percentage of children living in poverty is 22.6%, giving South Dakota a ranking of 33rd in this category.
