3.9 First Aid: Online First Aid and Online CPR Certification

This website offers certificates in both CPR and first aid after completion of online courses. Fees are modest if you wish a certificate, but the courses themselves are free. If you need certification, please ensure the institution with which you are dealing accepts online certificates; however, the education could help anyone become competent in this critical area.

It remains a worthwhile introduction to the subject, probably suitable for high school and above. Parents without a background in logic would find it well worth their time.
