More Bang For Your Buck. 

Many agencies allow you to pick a class a la carte. While there are many advantages to this, it could end up costing you more time and money in the long run. One of the largest national organizations offers their Adult First Aid / CPR / AED for $60. They also offer the Child/Infant First Aid / CPR / AED for $60. All in all, you end up paying $120 for both of their courses, with time spent in two class sessions. 

  • We at Vital Force choose to teach both the adult and child/infant courses as a combined package which means that you get more knowledge and bang for your buck. Save time and save money. 

We Drive To You 

Many of these courses require you to drive to a central location as opposed to learning in the comfort of your own home and on your own schedule.

  • With Vital Force, we can come to you if you request mobile CPR, and at no additional cost should you be within the city of Schenectady. 

  • We also offer a variety of classes at central locations for those who prefer classroom-style learning.


Many of these courses require instructors to be versed in the skill of teaching CPR but do not require that the instructor has had experience performing CPR.

  • With Vital Force, you know that you have an instructor who has experience in performing CPR both on the patient and as a dispatcher via 9-1-1.

Keep Your Student Materials

 Many of these courses require no instructor-led portions  and leave out critical student items such as workbooks, reference guides, and rescue materials. 

  • With Vital Force, you receive your own personal student workbook, pocket face mask, and a mini training first aid kit for you to keep.

Clean, Effective, High-Quality Equipment

Many of these courses use materials that are not cleaned (such as gauze, triangular bandages, manikins, and masks) which violates some instructor standards set forth by all nationally recognized training associations. 

  • With Vital Force, you will be using manikins that are disinfected both  inside and out by the instructor, free of obvious damage.

  • We provide personal training equipment to minimize contamination and replace items such as gauze or cling on a frequent basis.

Instructor-Led Learning

Many agencies offer First Aid and sometimes CPR "online only." Learning this knowledge without the skills verification by an experienced instructor can be compared to a friend stating that they know CPR because they watched it on a televised medical drama. 

  • With Vital Force, you only have the option of instructor-led training to ensure the quality of the class and to verify the skill of the client / student.

We Guarantee Your Success 

Many agencies allow their students to take the course an additional time if they are unsuccessful at passing the written or the skills test. 

  • We at Vital Force will personally work with each individual to ensure that they pass whether it's for the first class, their second class, or their tenth class - without any additional costs.

The average cost of a combined CPR & AED course among our largest competitors ranges from $90 to $120 per class depending on if you include First Aid or chose to have an instructor present. Vital Force bases their prices off of what is currently offered by other nationally recognized organizations.
