As of August 1, 2020, the training will involve a blended learning format. The classroom portion will be completed online, and the skills demonstration portion will be scheduled with EHS. To register for a class, click here. The cost for Adult First Aid/CPR/AED is $45.00 per person, and is payable through VT Continuing and Professional Education.

Upon receipt of payment, ASHI will send an email to the participant for access to online materials. Once the online portion has been successfully completed, participants will receive an email from EHS indicating that they can now schedule an appointment for CPR skills verification. On your Training Profile page, you may select an appointment under the "Appointments" tab. Skills verification typically takes less than 1.5 hours.
