How to Double Check if a CPR Company is EMSA Certified
1. Check length of class.
If a company is offering the pediatric CPR & First-aid class in less than 8 hours, it is a scam. It does not matter if you are renewing or if the class is your first time. State law requires the CPR and First-aid to be 8 hours long.
2. Check with EMSA
You can view if a company has a current license with EMSA, by clicking here. Safety Training Seminars is listed and our license number is 0204-DC.
3. Certification card
We will issue the official EMSA approved certification card on the day of the class. There are many CPR companies that mail the card out to students, which can take up to 2-3 weeks for you to receive.
