Are your EMS courses National Registry compliant?
Yes! Our programs are authorized by the states of Louisiana and Mississippi, follow National Registry standard curriculum, and graduates are eligible to sit for the National Registry written certification exam.
How is the Hybrid EMS program structured?
We have class live via Microsoft Teams two times each week, with a skill lab and clinical day scheduled at the end of each module of topics. We try to maintain as much flexibility as we can, so you have 72 hours to watch the class recording and log your attendance for credit. Have questions you can't ask due to a recording? No problem! You have access to all of our instructors through Discord and Teams!
How does the In-House Payment Plan work?
In addition to the option of paying for tuition in full, we understand that it isn't often that that's possible. To that end, we also have an in house payment plan for $300 non-refundable down payment. This payment is applied to tuition and the remaining tuition is paid in installments over the course of the program.
I don’t have a location or the space to set up training in?
No problem! You and your team can come to one of our training sites! We utilize a growing list of locations you can choose from in order to complete your training!
I am not looking for a professional class, but would really like CPR, First Aid, and AED training. Do you do that?
Absolutely! We are focused on providing training tailored to your needs. 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 by request so shoot us a message!
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 or text. 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.
I need a Skills Check do you offer that?
Yes we do! We provide skills checks for all AHA online courses. Just click on course calendar for a list of planned dates and times. Can’t find a day that works? Reach out to us and we will see what we can do to accomodate your schedule.
