Are your EMS programs accredited?
EMR.through AEMT certifications don't actually receive accreditation. While paramedic is a course requiring accreditation, EMR, EMT, and AEMT are authorized by states instead. Our program is approved by both Louisiana and Mississippi, and is taught to National Registry curriculum standards, so graduates of the ARES EMS programs are eligible to sit for the National Registry exam for certification. Once this test is complete, the candidate will simply apply for state licensure in order to work as a first responder.
How does the ARES In-House Payment Plan work?
For our larger, more expensive courses, students are eligible to join by paying $500 as a down payment. While the In-House payments are non-refundable, they are a great way for a student to receive 0% interest financing easily without a credit check. NOTE: All tuition must be paid in full before students are allowed to graduate their selected course.

We specialize in community and individual based informational classes recognizing that this information is important to EVERYONE, not just professional rescuers. We frequently set up training for families, groups of kids, church groups, clubs, or individual training!
Does this CPR, BLS or ACLS count for my state requirements?
ARES provides certification cards through The American Heart Association, The American Red Cross, and The American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI). All three are recognized as approved providers for CPR …so, in most cases YES. If you have further questions about this please give us a call. Compliance may be subject to independent requirements or policies, so if you are unsure you should request clarification and specifics from your employer or regulating entity.
What is the minimum age to learn CPR?
The AHA does not mandate a minimum age requirement for learning CPR. The ability to perform CPR is based more on body strength than age. Studies have shown that children as young as nine years old can learn and retain CPR skills.
Why is AED training included in all your CPR courses?
The science shows that victims have a greater chance of survival from cardiac arrest when high-quality CPR includes use of an AED.
