CPR / AED / FIRST AID TRAINING
Notice: Renton RFA’s CPR classes are cancelled until the state has entered Phase 3 of re-opening. We will keep you updated as things progress. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Our New Program
We are excited to announce the launch of our new CPR Program! We’ve partnered with Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority and Valley Regional Fire Authority to expanded our CPR/AED and First Aid training to the community! Whether you’re looking for training for personal knowledge or certification has been mandated by your employer, our program has the training and standardized curriculum to provide you the skills you need. Enhancements to our program include:
- More courses available throughout the year
- The addition of First Aid as a certification option
- Curriculum based on the standards set forth by the American Heart Association
- Completion cards for both CPR/AED and First Aid training (good for 2-years)
- Both CPR/AED and First Aid sessions meet WISHA and OSHA requirements
Join us for our next informative CPR/AED and First Aid course and learn the basic skills you need to help save a life!
Each course is now broken up into two (2) half-day sessions – one session for CPR/AED training and one session for First Aid training. Participants can choose to sign up for one or both sessions, depending on their needs. The entire course is taught by certified firefighter/EMT instructors. The curriculum we provide is the same curriculum made standard by the American Heart Association (AHA) and taught by the AHA and American Red Cross.
CPR / AED Curriculum: Our CPR / AED session is designed to provide the fundamental skills and confidence needed to perform CPR on an adult, child, or infant. Participants learn how to recognize and alleviate airway obstructions, properly use an AED (automatic external defibrillator), and the signs, symptoms, and corrective action for a stroke or heart attack. Successful completion will result in a completion card. This card satisfies WISHA and OSHA requirements for CPR.
First Aid Curriculum: Our First Aid session provides the fundamental skills necessary to recognize and treat medical emergencies. Participants learn scene safety, the signs and symptoms of diabetes, stroke, and seizures, and how to best treat these emergencies. Participants also learn how to control bleeding, treat for shock and burns, and manage head and spine injuries. Successful completion will result in a completion card. This card satisfies WISHA and OSHA requirements for First Aid.
Our course includes certified completion cards for participants who successfully complete each session. These cards verify that the user has met the performance standards of nationally recognized institutions. The regional fire department branded card(s) is also recognized by WISHA and OSHA – meeting these important safety requirements.
Please note: the card you receive from taking either session within our course is not an “AHA Heartsaver” branded card. If you are taking CPR and/or First Aid to satisfy an employer requirement, please check with them to make sure they accept certified training from the fire department.
