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 $30. The next classes is on November 18, 2019.
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.
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.
This class does not meet the requirements for Wilderness First Aid certification.
