Does the USCG accept entirely online CPR and First Aid training for Captains licenses?

Updated: Jul 27

No, The USCG National Maritime Center requires that some portion of your CPR and First Aid training is done in person.



No matter which provider you choose you need to make sure some portion of your First Aid and CPR course is done is person. If you First Aid | CPR card from Red Cross says ONLINE it will not be accepted.
