ECSI CPR/AED/First Aid: Hybrid

COVID-19 Update: Please email if you are interested in taking this course to be added to. our waiting list. All classes will take place at the Illinois Fire service Institute. The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority and we have added several precautions to allow distancing between students and limited contact between students and instructors (see COVID-19 Safety Notice).


Course Details

The ECSI, CPR, AED, and First Aid Hybrid class goes over the skills involved in CPR (both adult and infant), AED usage, and several First Aid topics. First Aid topics include traumatic emergency (bleeding control, splinting, etc.), medical emergency (chest pain, seizure, etc.), or environmental emergency (heatstroke, hypothermia, etc.). 


While this course goes over the same material as our In-Person Course, the hybrid course allows students to go through the online portion at their own pace. The online portion offers an interactive format which typically takes 3 hours. Upon completion of the online portion, students will come together for an in-person practice and skills test out (~1.5 hours)*.


*Students must complete the entire online course prior to attending the in-person session. Any student who fails to complete the entire online portion and receive their certificate of completion prior to this course will not be allowed to participate in this class and will not get certified.
