CPR/AED for Outdoor Enthusiasts


The CMC Denver Group’s Wilderness First Aid School (WFA) offers a 2 and 1/2 hour CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) evening class at the AMC/CMC.  There are limited spaces for this course. The cost of the course is $40. 

This is the two and one-half hour ECSI Adult CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) course. Students receive a two-year CPR/AED certification upon completion of the class.  The ECSI course is comparable to the American Heart Association’s (AHA) HeartSaver certification, and meets the 2015 AHA CPR Guidelines. The ECSI course is recognized as meeting industry standards for CPR/AED courses.

We are offering a small CPR/AED class held outdoors with a limit of six students on September 3, 2020 at 5:300pm. Each student will be socially-distanced by at least six feet apart. A separate mannequin and AED trainer will be provided to each student to work individually on CPR and AED skills. Students will not work in groups as is done in our normal, pre-COVID-19 CPR/AED classes. A sanitized mask will be provided to each student to practice mouth-to-mouth skills individually on the mannequins. Our certified CPR/AED Laura Zaruba instructor will also be teaching the class. Students completing the class will receive a two-year Adult CPR/AED certification from ECSI. Please note that the CMC State WFA course does not include CPR/AED certification (although CPR/AED is discussed during the course).

NOTE:  Leaders and prospective leaders seeking to have their CPR costs covered under the  Support Aid for Leader Training (SALT) program, should NOT register here.  Rather, you MUST first apply through the Denver Saftey and Leadership committee – see https://goo.gl/DhBZfM for the SALT application and tuition coverage program. SALT does not provide for reimbursements for students who self-pay in advance of the class.

This course includes CPR in wilderness environments. The class also covers how to relieve choking victims. (Please note that this course does not qualify for the AHA Basic Life Support (BLS) for Health Care Professionals). The course is taught by a Wilderness First Responder.
