What is the minimum age for CPR, First Aid and/or AED certification?
There is no minimum age requirement for certification. However, a student must be able to understand the information and pass the skills testing, along with the written exam if required. If he or she is able to do so, they should be issued a certification card regardless of his or her age.
I have an injury or disability and can’t perform all the skills. Can I be certified?
No. CPR/AED and First Aid certification requires that students pass a skills exam. Students who cannot perform the skills are not issued certification cards. However, a person with a disability can perform many of the skills as well as guide another rescuer through the steps. Even though a person may not be able to complete the certification requirements, the training is still highly valuable.
How many hours does it take to complete most classes?
All of our classes are at least 3 hours and typically can be completed in 1 day (ginger addition)
