All registered adults and youth are eligible to take this course following these guidelines:

  • Adults*: Provide CPR/AED certification
  • Scouts BSA requirements*: 14 years old minimum, youth must be First-Class rank, and must have completed First Aid Merit Badge.
  • Venturing requirements*: must have First Aid training.

*These requirements may be waived if you take Friday’s CPR/AED course. See info below.
