The Pet Emergency Education training and orientation program is a comprehensive on demand course that teaches human CPR instructors and other professionals to become certified animal emergency first aid and CPR instructors. This course is approximately 10 hours long and is asynchronous; there are no live components. Trainees can log in and out as much as they wish however they must complete the program in 30 days. Before moving forward in the training please click here to read through our Policy Agreement.

Our courses work best with Google Chrome. Safari and Microsoft Explorer and Edge may also be used, however they have been shown to cause intermittent login issues.

This program is made up of videos, tutorials, assigned readings, PowerPoint presentations, quizzes and a final exam. To reiterate, this course is asynchronous, meaning that it can be viewed at the participant’s own pace and you can log in and out of the program as much as you want. However, as previously stated, you must complete this course within 30 days. Once you complete the course you will have 7 days from that date to print off your certificate. After 7 days your access to the training program will expire.

You will also be required to review all of the material for the PetCPR+ Certification course that you will be teaching in great detail including all lesson plans, the E-Book reference guide, and the class PowerPoint. Every item in this program is vitally important for you to review and will be covered within all of the assessments. The cumulative final exam will be taken at the end of the course and covers all material presented within the training program. There are multiple quizzes and exams that require a 100% passing score and you have 5 attempts to pass each quiz and the final exam.

There are multiple attempts allowed for each quiz and for the final. Modules must be completed in order, therefore you will not be able to access a module until you successfully complete the previous module. You must also pass all modules before you will be given access to the final exam.

Any participant that needs an extension to complete this orientation must email the instructor training manager prior to the end date of this orientation program and request an extension. 

Instructor’s supplies such as canine and feline mannequins, projectors, stuffed animals and first aid kits may be purchased through our company or if your training center already owns these supplies just let us know. A list of required supplies can be found in this training program.
