There is no written test with this course. Only skill testing. It also incorporates the knowledge of the AED ( Automatice External Defibrillator).

  Healthcare Provider/AED CPR. This course is taught to meet the needs of healthcare providers (RNs, MDs, CNAs, Respiratory Therapist). This course offers certification, requires more skills and there is a written test requirement. It also incorporates knowledge of the AED (Automatic External Defibrillator).
