First Aid & CPR Courses

Community Courses

American Academy of CPR and First Aid : Provides online CPR, First Aid and BLS training for individuals looking to acquire certification and expand their medical knowledge.


Unit or Church-Led Courses

The national agreement between the BSA and ECSI gives each unit, district, camp, or council the ability to act as a standalone ECSI Education Center.  With this independence, volunteers can teach CPR/AED and first-aid courses as needed. The following ECSI CPR/AED and first aid training materials meet BSA training requirements: 

Fees and Course Completion Cards: Joining ECSI is easy and involves no Education Center or instructor fees. As an ECSI Education Center, you have the freedom to manage your own courses and do not have to worry about having to pay recurring fees. The first 20 standard student manuals purchased come with a course completion card. For additional course completion cards, a field guide or pocket guide must be purchased. Before purchasing an online course, make sure there is an ECSI instructor available in your area to complete a skills check. Please note, an on-site skills check demonstrated to an instructor is required in order to earn a nationally-recognized course completion card from ECSI.

High-Quality Materials: Student manuals feature the latest medical content and are filled with tips and tools to ensure that Scouts of all levels are prepared to respond to an emergency situation.
