All Instructor Led Classes Suspended Until July 1, 2020

Commonwealth CPR’s Reaction To COVID-19

Continue to our Home Page

In the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, effective March 16, 2020 Commonwealth CPR has suspended all in person instructor led classes until July 1, 2020

The American Heart Association has released a memo to all training centers and instructors with the following information…

Those with AHA Provider and Instructor cards that expired in March and April, and those with cards expiring at the end of May and June can renew their card for up to 120 days from the recommended renewal date on their card. See below for specific recommended renewal and extension dates:

Recommended Renewal Date on Card (end of month)New Renewal Due Date with 120-day Extension (end of month)
March 2020July 2020
April 2020August 2020
May 2020September 2020
June 2020October 2020
AHA Updated Interim Guidance on AHA Card Extensions during COVID-19

Beginning in July, we will resume normal timelines for renewing cards. Those with cards expiring at the end of July should plan to renew their cards by the recommended renewal date on their card (July 2020). 

However, for those who may be in affected areas with restrictions still in place into July, Training Centers, at their discretion, may consider extending July cards past their renewal date, for no more than 120 days. 

With that being said, we will still be offering all of our online curriculum. For online classes, such as the CPR/AED courses that require an instructor evaluation, we will be offering extended hours come July so that we can accommodate all those who require an instructor evaluation. Commonwealth CPR will be taking extra precautions in decontamination going forward. At this point in time it is too early to tell whether or not we will be extending our July renewals.

We are hoping that come July we will be operating at full capacity, but we are closely watching recommendations from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and this date will be moved as we see fit.

As always, we are committed to serve you and your training needs. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us should you have any questions or concerns.

Please view our COVID-19 page for more information on this evolving matter.
