Class participants and employers can visit and enter the ID found on the digital certificate (or scan the QR code with a standard QR reader using a smart device) to access a copy of the valid certificate with student training information

A student can cancel class enrollment up to 7 days before the start of the class without penalty, if a cancellation occurs after this the following amounts are deducted from the original payment:

50% from 3 to 7 days before the event starts;

100% from 0 to 2 days before the event starts;

A student may reschedule if there is an unforeseen emergency and as long as the new class is within 30 days of the original class, there is no penalty.

All Bay Area CPR LLC classes are taught with your safety in mind. Social distancing of students, masks during class, and disinfection of manikins between classes are just a few of the precautions enacted for each class.
