Can I claim the cost of a CPR course my wife took for her small business?

If the course your wife took cost over $100, and she took it to obtain skills for, or improve their skills in, an occupation, she can claim a Tuition Tax Credit for it. In order for you to get the credit for it, your wife must first include the "tuition slip" on her return, then only if she does not need it to reduce her own tax payable, can she transfer it to you.

In TurboTax go to Deductions > Students > Tuition Fees; or use the Find feature and search for Tuition Fees. If your wife does not need to use the credit, TurboTax will automatically transfer the amount to your return (if you are preparing them together).
