FAQs

Please read carefully. The following policies apply to all classes taught at Longmont CPR.

Choosing the Correct Class

There are detailed descriptions of our classes on this website. In addition to that, we are available via telephone and email to give advice as to which class is the most appropriate for a student's vocational/academic needs. It is the student’s responsibility to inquire if his or her employer/school has specific certification requirements, and to ask for help before registering.

Attendance

Students must arrive on time and be present for the entire class to receive certification. Late-comers may be denied entry altogether (at the discretion of the instructor), or may be allowed to participate, but without certification.

Quality Standards

Students must not only attend class, they must demonstrate the ability to perform all skills and pass all written quizzes.

Environment

Classes will only be held in a safe and smoke-free environment.

Appropriate Attire

To allow students to perform all of the training skills on the floor and avoid embarrassment, please choose clothing that is both non-restrictive and non-revealing.

Recertification (also known as Review or Refresher) Classes

Recertification students will be required to show proof that they have successfully completed that particular American Red Cross class (or the equivalent class from the American Heart Association) within the past two years.

When do I get my card?

The Red Cross uses a state of the art digital system that sends you a digital copy. With Red Cross Digital Certificates you get anytime, anywhere access to your certificates; plus print, share, and download wherever and whenever you like. Each certificate includes unique ID and a QR code.You should receive your email with your certificate in a few hours after taking the class. All BLS classes will receive their card immediately at the end of class.

Why do I have to prepay for a class online?

Because our classes have a student limit, we enroll students on a first-come, first-serve basis, and if we held spaces for people who didn't pay and reached our maximum, we'd have to turn away people who were willing to prepay for that seat in the class. Plus we've learned that a non-paying reservation has a 60% higher chance of not showing up. i.e. wasting a reservation.

**You can come in to register and pay cash, credit card or debit card.

Can Longmont CPR teach a class at my facility?

Yes.  If you have a group of 5 or more people, Longmont CPR will come to your facility providing you have adequate space to accommodate everyone.  We will bring all of the necessary equipment with us to teach the class.  It can be customized to fit your specific needs.

Student No-Show

When you sign up and pay for a class, you are registering for one of a limited number of spaces in that class. Once we commit to providing you with that training, that space cannot be sold to anyone else. If you do not show up, it’s simply too late to offer that space to someone else. So, in order to keep no-shows to a minimum, if you do not show up for your class, your registration fee will be forfeited altogether. There are no exceptions to this policy.
