ProCPR Slashes CPR Certification Cost for Christmas Season has cut the price on its health care provider CPR certification course to $17.50 until the end of the year.

Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) December 10, 2009 -- Health care workers who require CPR certification to perform their jobs can get a nationally recognized certificate from for $17.50 if they take the online course and purchase their certificate before the end of the year. In response to difficult economic conditions, ProCPR is reducing the price of its accredited online CPR training and certification program from $29.95 to $17.50.

CPR certification in a traditional classroom setting has been the standard means of teaching CPR since its inception in the 1960s. ProCPR changes this model by incorporating e-learning, allowing the student to learn when it is most convenient for them. The website also sends optional training videos through e-mail every week to participants to keep the material fresh over the two-year certification period.

"Cash is tight for people during the Christmas season, especially in this economy. We are hoping to lower the stress a little this year with a reduced rate," says Roy Shaw, co-founder of ProCPR.

The program offers a special "blended" certificate to students who require a brief hands-on skills demonstration with a manikin. This manikin practice is performed after the student has completed his or her cognitive training online and may be administered by any valid CPR instructor.
