first aid training for the general public

Important COVID-19 Notes: As this is a mostly online, “blended-learning” class during the COVID-19 pandemic, you will need:

  • a reliable, high-speed WiFi connection.
  • at minimum, a tablet (like an iPad® or its Android equivalent).
    • A full-size computer would be even better. But, to be perfectly clear, a mobile phone screen will be too small to be able read the slides and view the demonstrations clearly.

This class may be taken with or without hands-on training. However, only those who take the complete course (both the online lectures and the in-person training) are eligible for certification.

For individuals, the in-person portion of the class will be held — by appointment only — in the home office of CPR-Twin Cities (in the Highland Park neighborhood of Saint Paul, MN).

  • strokes
  • seizures
  • poisonings
  • allergic reactions
  • diabetic emergencies
  • heat/cold emergencies
  • burns
  • bleeding
  • fractures/dislocations
  • concussions
  • spinal injuries
