Please review the HOST POLICIES at the bottom of this page before filling out the request form

In exchange for hosting one of our certification classes businesses/organizations receive the following:

One complimentary registration for classes of 8 or more paid participants (excluding fundraiser classes)

Your business/organization is promoted on all registration pages, flyers, social media, e-mail and fax blasts and other marketing material for the class

Your logo is prominently displayed on all marketing media 

Please be aware that in-person classes are only being offered in limited areas as we do not have certified instructors in all states.

We require a minimum of at least 6 paid participants in one of our classes however in some areas where instructors have to travel long distances to teach a class, a larger minimum class size may be required. Please be aware that instructors are contractors with Pet Emergency Education and work directly with our company therefore do not manage any of the administrative aspects of the class. Any questions about the class must be directed to our office, not the instructor. 

PetCPR+, PetCPR+ Advanced, Groomer First Aid and K9WildAid+ classes are 3 hours long, EquiAid is 4 hours long

Participants may choose to purchase a printed copy of our Canine and Feline CPR and First Aid manual or Emergency First Aid For Horses manual for an additional $24.95

Click on one of the blue buttons below and fill out the class request form to request an In-Person Private, Public, Fundraiser Class, oa Live Virtual Class

In-Person Public Classes

Facilities and groups may book a class that is open to the public.  
Public classes may also be fundraisers for non-profit animal-related charities as long as they meet our fundraiser guidelines. 

Please be aware that in-person classes are only available in areas where we have a certified instructor. We do not have instructors in all areas and states.

Private Classes

Groups may book a private class for their own staff, members and/or volunteers.  Under no circumstances may a private class be open to the public. Private classes are offered both In-Person (limited to instructor availability) or Virtually live via Zoom with one of our senior certified instructors.

Equine training classes are unique and have special guidelines. Please click on the link below to learn more about hosting an equine first aid class.


Public classes do not need a minimum 6 participants in order to book a class.  Our office will help promote and advertise the class in order to get enough people registered for it. Private classes must have at least 6 people or be willing to open their class to the public in order to achieve enough people. Be aware that we do not have instructors in all locations around the country therefore we may need to require a larger number of people to attend the class in order to book an instructor.

The registration fee for ALL of our classes is $74.95 per person.  This includes an official frame-able certificate (if you are an animal or veterinary professional receiving CEU you will receive the appropriate documentation on your certificate to earn your CEU), a 2 year membership to our Online Animal Emergency Resource Center and a complimentary e-book reference guide.  Participants may choose to purchase a printed copy of the reference guide for an additional $24.95 per copy.

Occasionally we offer seasonal discounts and promotions. They are not, however,  guaranteed and cannot be combined with any other discount or promotion.  Hosts redeeming a discount or promotional coupon are not eligible for the one complimentary registration and discounts must be requested prior to booking. Host Bonuses and registration discounts, including complimentary registrations, are not available for fundraiser classes.

Public classes are primarily scheduled on weekends, with Saturday being the most successful day for attendance. We recommend a morning start time for Saturday classes, between 9 and 11 am. Afternoons on Saturdays tend to be less desirable for participants. Sundays are also successful, but we recommend a start time of 12 pm or later on Sundays. Occasionally we will schedule public classes during the week but only on Tuesday thru Thursdays, after 5 pm.

 In no way may anyone charge more than the fee set forth by Pet Emergency Education for any program. In no way may any entity other than Pet Emergency Education benefit monetarily from any Pet Emergency Education class.

 Hosts of private and public classes understand that they might receive one complimentary registration or a staff discount if they host a qualifying* class.  Discounts and promotions must be discussed at the time the class is booked and complimentary registrations and/or discounts are provided only at the discretion of the Pet Emergency Education management and are not guaranteed.

For private classes, host facilities may choose to have their participants register directly through Pet Emergency Education on our website, or the host may collect their own registrations/payments and submit one full payment to Pet Emergency Education at least 7 business days prior to the scheduled class date. The host may pay via invoice either through email or over the phone with a credit/debit card.  Check payments may also be used to pay for a class however checks must be mailed to our office and be cleared by our bank at least 7 business days prior to the scheduled class. Any check that is returned for any reason will be subject to a $25 fee.

The PetCPR+ Advanced Class may only be taught by instructors that are credentialed veterinary technicians or licensed veterinarians. Our PetCPR+ Advanced, K9WildAid+ and EquiAid classes are not available in all areas. 

Classes that are not at the 6-person minimum within 5 days of the scheduled class are subject to cancellation or rescheduling.

*a qualifying class is one that has at least 8 full-price paid participants.  No other discounts, promotions or coupons may be used with a complimentary registration.
