​First Aid and CPR Course Requirements

The State Board of Education requires that one staff member (licensed or classified) for each 60 students hold a valid first aid card.                  

If you are planning to take a class to obtain your First Aid/CPR card, please be certain that the course meets the following criteria.  If it does not meet these criteria, you will not be eligible for tuition reimbursement.

Criteria:

1) The course is nationally accredited

2) The course is taught by a trainer currently certified by an accredited program

3) The course requires a hands-on skills test

  • This excludes most on-line certifications unless a skills test is required

  • The American Heart Association and the National Safety Council offer on-line courses that require a hands-on skills test

4) The course is not taught by a current employee for a fee

  • This is due to state ethics rules
