With a blended course, you take the cognitive test/challenge portion of your certification online with ProTrainings and print out our blended course certificate.

To print the blended course temporary certificate and skills checklist, after passing and paying for the online test, click the blended course instruction link on the receipt page or from the home page action link.

Be sure to bring this certificate to an instructor of your choosing or designated trainer for your employer, where your  hands-on skills will be evaluated, usually in a 30-45 minute session.  After the skill evaluation, the hands on instructor will co-sign the back of your card and mark your blended portion complete through their instructor dashboard for issue of the professional blended course card.

If your employer doesn't have a recommended instructor, try going to BlendedCPR.com and checking for an approved evaluator in your area or give a call to your local fire station or ambulance company. Skill evaluators usually charge between $20 and $40 for this service.

If you completed the 100% online recertification, we offer four (4) Basic Continuing Education Credits which are equal to contact hours. Please log into your account and click on the actions link to print out your CEU statement if you completed and paid for the course.

If you are an EMS professional and completed the Blended Course with a hands-on skill evaluation, we can give you 4 Basic Credits through CECBEMS (Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services). Please send us an email with your EMS License number, date issued, renewal date, and national registry if currently national registry certified, and we would be glad to send you an official statement of CECBEMS credits.

Not every licensing board offers the same amount of CEU's for our course, so please check with your agency for the number of hours that can be used for BLS or Healthcare Provider CPR certification. EMS professionals should check with their registration/licensure/certifying authority to determine if the course is recognized and approved for the purposes of renewing their registration, licensure, or certification.
