How to get AFAA-Approved CPR Training

AFAA-Approved CPR training

We are so excited that you located our courses here at ProTrainings!  We are an accepted provider for the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).  

You will need to complete  both the ProCPR Basic online course and the hands-on skill evaluation we offer with our SUMO kit option


As of May 11th, 2020, ProTrainings was informed that AFAA is temporarily accepting 100% online-only certifications due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  ProTrainings recommends that NASM trainers still use our Blended course (online + hands-on), for the best quality of learning and wider acceptance. NASM will require hands-on CPR at a later time; employers may also require hands-on training, even if NASM doesn't.

If you have any questions about choosing the right course, please contact us.
