The U.S. National Whitewater Center in collaboration with the American Red Cross, now offers certification in First Aid, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) classes to train individuals in essential live saving skills.
This course will train lay responders to overcome any reluctance to act in emergency situations and to recognize and care for life-threatening respiratory or cardiac emergencies in adults and children. This course will provide the lay responder with knowledge and skills necessary in an emergency to help sustain life and to minimize pain and the consequences of injury or sudden illness until professional medical help arrives. Students who successfully complete this course will receive certificates for Standard First Aid with CPR/AED (Adult and Child) which is valid for two years.
This course consists of online content and classroom segments. Online material must be completed prior to attending the classroom activities. Participants must complete the online portion and score 80% or higher on the final online exam. Participants will also need to print off and hand in the Proof of Completion Certificate to the instructor the day of the Skills Practice and Assessment. The Proof of Completion Certificate will be presented at the end of the online exam.
