Lifesaver CPR provides a great thoroughness to the class, so that whether one is new or well experienced, the class is taught the way it is designed to be taught.  (One who is well experienced will take the class at a faster pace than a novice, but this is due to the material being grasped faster and the tests being passed more quickly rather than parts of the class being cut out.)  Lifesaver CPR also provides the option of traveling to your location to make the class very convenient with regards to location and time of class.  The price is very affordable, and it includes an American Heart Association certification card and student ebook, unless it is for wilderness first aid or pet first aid classes.  (Go to pet or wilderness page links for sample non-AHA certification cards.)  All certifications last for 2 years and will typically be received immediately upon completion of the class.  I like to make class enjoyable  and not just a ritual you need to do every 2 years.  My objective is for the student to obtain the confidence to respond in a moment’s notice, if an emergency situation were to arise.  If you truly want to learn the skills and enhance your confidence to respond in an emergency, contact Lifesaver CPR (214-704-3891)!

*Is there a fee for using my credit card or Paypal account?

No, there is not a credit card or Paypal fee; Lifesaver CPR accepts Paypal, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa, check, and cash.  $1 will be added to the total of all purchases, but this will be discounted off of cash, money order, or check purchases.  Debit cards are not accepted.

*Is there a no show fee?

No.  The person will pre-pay a non-refundable class fee; if the class fee was not pre-paid, the class fee is still owed!

*Is there a cancellation fee?

No.  The person will pre-pay a non-refundable class fee; if the class fee was not pre-paid, the class fee is still owed!

*If I do not finish the class, do I owe money for the class?

Yes.  You are obligated to pay the entire class cost whether you become certified or not!  Certification means that the student fully participated in the class and passed all of the required tests.  Taking the class does not guarantee certification.

*How do I confirm my spot in a class?

Signing up for a class is a commitment.  Lifesaver CPR fully expects people to live up to their commitments; therefore, class fees are non-refundable!

You will schedule a class time by contacting Lifesaver CPR (214-704-3891) (lifesavercpr@texascprcourse.com) & finding a class time slot within the Lifesaver CPR schedule.  You will pre-pay the entire class fee (non-refundable); if for some reason, the person does not pre-pay the class fee, class will not start until the entire payment is received.  If one does not finish the class, certification was not earned, and the class fee cannot be refunded!

*Are online only CPR/ First Aid classes sufficient?


Please read my blog article on this topic!

Then, call Lifesaver CPR to schedule your class (214-704-3891)!

*What is the difference between CPR and First Aid?

CPR is performed when someone is not normally breathing and not responding if you are not a healthcare professional or if there is not an adequate pulse nor responsiveness nor normal breathing if you are a healthcare professional.  First aid is performed if there is an injury or illness but the previously mentioned CPR conditions are not present (e.g. bandaging a bleeding wound).

*Where are the CPR/ AED/ First Aid classes taught?

Lifesaver CPR will travel to the client to teach the class or the client can come to one of Lifesaver CPR’s classrooms in Denton or possibly in McKinney!  Call 214-704-3891 to schedule your class today! 

*How long is the class?

AHA “ACLS Provider” classes are required to schedule 16 hours for the full course and 8 hours for the renewal course; the course is designed to actually be approximately this number of hours.

See the Heartsaver, ACLS, and BLS specific pages for more time approximations.

pet first aid class is about 2-5 hours, depending on whether it is the abbreviated class or not, the number of participants, etc.

wilderness first aid class is approximately 18-25 hours, depending on the number of participants, the number of optional sections completed, etc.

These ranges are the typical time frames; there may be exceptions with certain individuals/ groups taking a great length of time to complete the class; this may be due to extra breaks, extra questions/ discussion, extra times to do the skills test(s), etc.  Although Lifesaver CPR will try to keep the class moving, some individuals/ groups may take longer than predicted.  It is better to be confident in the lifesaving skills than to cut corners in the class for the mere sake of finishing very fast.

*Do I have to learn AED?

Yes.  The American Heart Association believes that AED’s are common and important enough that AED should be taught in every certifying CPR course.  All of the Lifesaver CPR classes result in the student becoming certified upon completion of the class.
