August 17, 2020


The ACA's Safety Education & Instruction Council (SEIC) recently approved the administrative extension of First Aid & CPR credentials for instructors and trainers who have been unable to safely find and attend in-person first aid and CPR certification courses.


In a season so greatly affected by COVID-19, SEIC acknowledges the hardship in obtaining or maintaining First Aid & CPR,which is a critical component of the ACA instructor certification maintenance requirements. For this reason, all CPR and First Aid credentials which have been submitted into the ACA Course Management System (CMS), but have since expired, have been automatically extended until March 31, 2021.


This extension allows for continued course registration and reporting within the CMS, as well as the ability to view, download, or print digital certificates. For any instructors who have not yet submitted any First Aid or CPR credentials, please be sure to do so at your earliest convenience. If your most recent credentials are currently expired, the administrative extension will be put in place immediately upon submission. I.e., please still submit your first aid and CPR documentation, even if it has recently expired.


For further assistance in uploading your documentation, or utilizing any of the CMS features, please read the user guide documents, which are posted here:


*This extension applies to first aid & CPR credentials as they directly pertain to ACA instructor certification requirements. This extension does NOT make valid expired first aid and CPR credentials for other agencies for which they may be used. If you have a question, please email the SEI Department.
