The training you receive from NHCPR prepared you for the National Registry of EMTs exam.  Once you have sucessfully passed that exam process, you can take you NREMT certification to most states and challenge their certification process.   

The best thing to do is to contact the Emergency Services department of the state you want to become certified in to see what their policy is.

The official answer is no.  What this class does is prepare you to take the National Registry of EMTs certification test.  Once you pass that, you will be certified as an EMT.

We do take all major credit cards.  You can also visit your local back to inquire about a personal loan to cover the cost of the class.  A payment plan is available.  See the course listing for a link to the plan.

You have to be 18 by the end of the class.  You can begin the class while you are 17.  Please call us for additional details.

By working with New Hampshire CPR, you will find that we offer flexible and convenient scheduling, reliable and experienced instructors and customized site specific scenarios and educational materials for all industries. You will meet General Industry OSHA Standards, Title 29 and the Code of Federal Regulations. We make safety training simple and fun.

Being issued a Successful Completion Card in First Aid, CPR or AED does not mean that you must respond in an emergency situation. For the lay rescuer, the decision to help or not to help in any situation is yours to make. If you choose to assist someone in need of first aid, you are protected under the Good Samaritan Law.

The law is based on "the principle that a person attempting to aid another in imminent danger and who then is sued by the one they attempted to aid, will not be charged with contributory negligence unless the rescuer attempts or provides first aid that is unreasonable or the rescuer acts unreasonably in performing the attempted rescue or first aid."

The Good Samaritan law's purpose is to keep people from being so reluctant to help a stranger in need for fear of legal repercussions, if they made some mistake in treatment. Therefore, this doctrine was primarily developed for first aid encounters and every state does have its own adapted version. Remember, a person is not obligated by law to perform first aid in most states, not unless it's part of a job description. Some states will consider it an act of negligence, if we don't at least call for help. Beyond this, assisting is optional and voluntary, partly due to preserving the rescuers own health in the process.

Our instructors are trained by American Heart Association. They develop the course curriculum, quiz and the material presented in the video demonstrations. Our instructors are also available for any questions or further clarification about the classes.

You should receive your American Heart Association e-Card 1-2 business days after the course is completed.  This card will be delivered to the email you provided when enrolling in the course.  We can provide you a temporary letter the day of the class stating that you have completed the class.

Our CPR/AED and First Aid card are valid for 2 years from the date of issue of your course completion card.

AED stands for automated external defibrillator. An AED is a small electronic portable device, which automatically diagnoses and treats life-threatening ventricular fibrillation or quivering of the heart. With the use of an AED, the heart is able to re-establish a normal, effective heart rhythm. In our CPR/AED certification course you will watch a video that explains the basics of an AED device.

The number of EMTs for your event depends on many variables. Type of event, estimated people in attendance, risk factors and location are just few.

Many of New Hampshire CPR staff comes from the same 911 services you know and trust. We have experience working in many different types of 911 emergency medical systems and have found that there are several very important reasons you should not solely rely on ’911′ for your event.

  • Even with good cell service, in your call seill has to route your call. Response time averages 7-10 minutes to get EMS on site. New Hampshire CPR response time is mere seconds.
  • 911 systems are responsible for an entire community and are generally over taxed, thus response time could be even longer.

We have been those volunteers you’ve trusted for years. You can trust that we’ve seen not only the challenges faced by organizers when trying to provide medical services at their events, but also the challenges faced by volunteers.

  • In order to provide EMTs to provide service to your event, they need to be working under a licensed EMS unit with the State of New Hampshire.  It is a lengthy process that requires many man hours to accomplish.  New Hampshire CPR has already done the work for you.
  • The volunteers you have been using most likely are not aware that they an not allowed to provide medical coverage without the oversight of a licensed EMS service, like New Hampshire CPR.
  • Volunteers are dressed in street clothes, easily blending into the crowds making it hard for participants, onlookers, event staff and incoming rescue to recognize that there is someone on scene that can help.New Hampshire CPR staff are dressed in uniform and look professional at all times. Our uniforms make it obvious who we are and that we are there to help.
  • Having an ambulance increases our costs, which inherently increase your cost. Based on our experience, it is not cost effective to have an ambulance on site.

  • We can at your request quote you standby coverage with an ambulance, but in our experience a mere 1% of all injuries require emergency transportation. By not having an ambulance on site we save you the cost of paying one to sit there. Should an ambulance become  necessary we will stabilize the patient and call 911. Upon the arrival of rescue units, New Hampshire CPR will hand off the patient to the Fire Department, along with all pertinent medical history and detailed documentation of the injury.

  • And finally, if the ambulance has to transport a patient from your event, you have now lost your ambulance and medical staff for the remainder of your event.

New Hampshire CPR serves all of New England, so, location is never a problem.

New Hampshire CPR can accommodate from 1 to 60 participants per certification class. We have enough equipment and instructors to meet your needs. We are only limited by the space available at your facility.  If your facility does not have the space, you can have your class at our Manchester classroom.

You need to provide an area large enough for all participants to sit during a lecture and get on to the floor for the skills practicum.  We supply all audio/visual equipment and training aids.

New Hampshire CPR charges a per person fee. We ask for a guaranteed minimum of 5 participants, depending on geographic location. We do not charge on-site, administrative or travel fees. New Hampshire CPR maintains a maximum ratio of 1 instructor to 10 students.

An AHA eCard is the electronic equivalent of a printed course completion card and can be provided to students as an alternative to a printed card. eCards are valid course completion cards and can be presented to employers as proof of successful completion of an AHA course. Like printed cards, eCards also expire two years from the issue date.

AHA eCards are more secure than printed cards. A three-point verification by the TCC, Instructor and student, is required to issue and claim eCards. eCard information is populated electronically by the TCC or Instructor and can only be altered by the TCC or AHA Customer Service by using AHA’s My Cards™. eCards can be easily verified by employers at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards to prove issuance by a valid TC and Instructor aligned with that TC.

No, they are optional. Each Training Center will determine whether they distribute eCards or the physical course completion cards. Only one of the two will be issued per participant.

Yes, employers may verify that an AHA eCard is authentic by entering the card information at www.heart.org/cpr/mycards.
The AHA has also created a memo on the validity of eCards for employers who may request an official AHA statement. Click here for this memo.

eCards may be issued for completion of classroom-based training or blended learning training (a skills session completed after an eLearning course).

Yes. An AHA eCard can be printed by the student or Instructor, if necessary.

After a student claims an eCard, the student’s AHA TCC/TC Admin or the AHA Customer Support Center is able to make edits to the course date, the Instructor name, and the student’s name or email address.
