A suitable number of employees must have the necessary training to appropriately administer first aid to victims of accidents or illnesses in the workplace until they can obtain professional medical attention. Additionally, CPR/AED training is offered as these techniques have been proven to significantly increase a victim's chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest.
You need to take part 1 (online through AHA) and part 2 (skills test through EHS) to be certified. The same courses are used for both initial and renewal certifications.
Note: EHS can only offer skills tests to University of Idaho employees.
