ECSI CPR/AED/First Aid: Hybrid : 4.00-3.00 Hours

Course Description


Course Details:

The ECSI, CPR, AED, and First Aid Hybrid class teaches the skills involved in CPR (adult, child, and infant), AED usage, and several First Aid topics. First Aid topics include traumatic emergency (bleeding control, splinting, etc.), medical emergency (chest pain, seizure, etc.), and environmental emergency (heatstroke, hypothermia, etc.). 


While this course goes over the same material as our In-Person Course, the hybrid course allows students to go through the online portion at their own pace. The online portion offers an interactive format which typically takes 3 hours. Upon completion of the online portion, students will come together for an in-person practice and skills test out (~1.5 hours)*.


*Students must complete the entire online course prior to attending the in-person session. Any student who fails to complete the entire online portion and receive their certificate prior to this course will not be allowed to participate in this class and will not get certified. 


Registration and Payment:

Group Registration:

Registration: Organizations or departments interested in creating a group class must email  After completion of a course agreement, a private class will be set up. Each student will receive a code to complete the online portion of the class at their own pace (interactive format ~3hrs) and then the whole group will come in together for an in-person practice and skills test out (~1.5hrs). 


Payment: The organization or department that sets up the class will be billed through their CFOPAL number for the whole group. The cost is $30/student.
