The American Heart Association now offers a wide range of basic CPR Heartsaver Classes, BLS, ACLS and PALS courses online with an Exam, this only completes the first 1/2 portion. The second step, is finding an AHA Training Center that will provide a skills session to check individuals accuracy and techniques.
