    Online courses are referred to as blended courses. Erudition via online courseware allows for quicker certification but does not allow for skipping the practical, hands-on portion.

    See >>this checklist<< for required documentation (with embedded links in the document).

    An excerpt from 46CFR10.205:

    (h) First aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course certificates. All applicants for an original license or certificate of registry, except as provided in Secs. 10.429, 10.456, and 10.466 of this part, must present to the OCMI:
    (1) A certificate indicating completion of a first aid course within the past 12 months from:
    (i) The American National Red Cross Standard First Aid and Emergency Care or Multi-media Standard First Aid course;
    (ii) A Coast Guard approved first aid training course; or,
    (iii) A course the OCMI determines meets or exceeds the standards of the American Red Cross courses; and,
    (2) A currently valid certificate of completion of a CPR course from:
    (i) The American National Red Cross;
    (ii) The American Heart Association;
    (iii) A Coast Guard approved CPR training course; or,
    (iv) A course the OCMI determines meets or exceeds the standards of the American Red Cross or American Heart Association courses.


    I'm guessing those online courses which offer certification without the practical, hands-on training don't pass muster with the commonly accepted certification authorities above.


    Caution: I have two brain cells. Sometimes they both work at the same time.

    My unofficial opinion, as long as it's approved by one of the commonly accepted entities mentioned in my post (which is direct cut/paste from 46CFR), yes.

    Please check with the site listed below to make sure:

    U.S. Coast Guard
    Regional Examination Center

    Oakland Federal Bldg., North Tower
    1301 Clay Street, Room 180N
