First Aid and CPR Training

An adult certified in First Aid/CPR is required if a troop leaves their meeting place and/or if an activity’s Safety Activity Checkpoint indicates a First Aider is required.  The following healthcare providers may also serve as first-aiders: physician, physician’s assistant, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, paramedic, military medic, and emergency medical technician.

With our partner agency, EPIC Trainings, Inc., we offer full day and blended learning* classes.  These standard First Aid and CPR courses include adult and child CPR and basic first aid. Certification is valid for 2 years.  Blended learning classes are NOT recommended if this is your first time taking First Aid and CPR training.
