NRP Certification and Recertification

We know you’re busy. With online certification you can get the training you need without the classroom.

We’ve taken nearly 2 decades on online training experience and turned it into a pain-free certification experience for you.

Earn your NRP certification or recertification with Career Step and you can

  • Train when it’s most convenient for you whether that’s in between patients, a marathon 6-hour stretch, or late nights after work.
  • Start and stop your training whenever you need to. You’ll have access to the course material until you pass the certification exam, so you have the flexibility to study when it works for you.
  • Learn exactly the information you need to keep your skills up-to-date. The curriculum is based on the latest ECC guidelines, and you can spend the most time on those topics you need to brush up on.
  • Get your card immediately as soon as you pass the certification exam. You’ll have access to a digital, printable card right away and your printed card will be mailed out quickly after you pass.

Thousands of healthcare professionals have successfully used our programs, and we work hard to make sure our cards are accepted. Our courses are accredited by a number of third-party, national associations.
