First Aid & CPR Requirement

The need for all around education. Photo Courtesy of Landmark LearningOn June 14, 2009, the ACA Board of Directors approved a motion pertaining to requiring First Aid and CPR for all ACA Instructors, Instructor Trainers, and Instructor Trainer Educators.

On June 25, 2009, the SEIC Executive Committee finalized the actual policy manual wording. The official policies associated with the First Aid & CPR Requirement can be found in the SEIC Policy Manual, revised as of 9-16-2009.

We have provided the overview document detailing the process.

Please review the revised SEIC Policy Manual at your earliest convenience.

Implementation Plan:

  • Starting 1/1/2010 all newly certified ACA Instructors, Instructor Trainers, and Instructor Trainer Educators must have and maintain an appropriate level of First Aid and age appropriate CPR.
  • Starting 1/1/2011, all ACA Instructors, Instructor Trainers, and Instructor Trainer Educators certified prior to 1/1/2010 must have and maintain an appropriate level of First Aid and age appropriate CPR.
  • At the October 2, 2011, SEIC and ACA Board of Director’s meeting, the phrase "First Aid and CPR courses must include hands on practice and skills demonstration.” was approved to be added appropriately throughout the SEIC Policy Manual.  

If you have any questions, please contact the Safety Education & Instruction Department.
