CPR & AED Training

 

UFD offers CPR and AED training to meet a variety of needs and circumstances.

CPR and AED Training

UFD offers two options for CPR and AED training:

Friends & Family® Hands-Only CPR and AED

Friends and Family hands-only CPR and AED training is appropriate for individuals who want to be able to provide life-saving, hands-only (no rescue breathing) CPR and operate an AED before professional rescuers arrive. Research has shown that effective hands-only CPR provides the best chance of a successful outcome. Course length is approximately one hour. This is the recommended course for most people.

American Heart Association Heartsaver® CPR AED

Heartsaver CPR and AED training is for individuals who need a course completion card for job, regulatory (e.g. OSHA), or other requirements. This course requires participants to enroll in and complete the online course  portion (at additional individual expense) prior to the skills session, and requires purchase of a rescue mask (available through the fire department or other sources). The skills portion takes approximately two hours.

Audience and Class Size

CPR & AED instruction is provided to small groups of up to six UAF faculty, staff, and students (limited to Interior Alaska). Multiple groups (i.e. 12 or 18) may be accommodated simultaneously based on instructor availability.

Scheduling

Courses must be arranged in advance, and are dependent on availability of instructors. Since instruction is provided by UAF student employees of the fire department, one-month lead time is requested. To arrange for a class, please complete this CPR & AED Request Form.

We provide hands-on training in our classroom at UAF CTC UPark  Building, room118, or we can come to your workplace. If training is to be conducted at your site, we will need you to provide a clean, preferably carpeted room with adequate floor space for manikin practice and A/V equipment.

FAQs

Why is hands-only (no rescue breaths) CPR recommended for most people?
Research has shown that effective hands-only CPR provides the best chance of a successful outcome, especially in conjunction with AED use.
Do you offer child and infant CPR training?

We offer child and infant CPR training for UAF affiliates that have a reason to know these skills. We don’t offer to teach these skills broadly because of limits on instructor availability. Courses are taught by UAF student employees of the fire department.

How long does a course completion card last? 
For those that need a course completion card to meet occupational or other requirements, this training should be repeated annually.
