In reality, I don’t recommend onlinne only life support classes at all.

Recertification will also be required after the lapse of a certain time period.
The Self- paced courses for home use are the AHA CPR and Infant Anytime Personal Learning Programs.

You can begin the course immediately or return at a later date to accomplish this program.
In order to get thee most out of such training, it is
advisable to invest in a training center that offers the full range
of courses you will need. Thhe Self- paced courses for home use are the AHA CPR and Infant Anytime Personal Learning
Programs.
