CPR & AED Train the Trainer Certification

The train the trainer option is used to certify a trainer to teach others using the included training kit. It incorporates the online course with an additional train the trainer module, as well as the training kit. This option results in an OSHA compliant lifetime trainer certification from Hard Hat Training. This certification is not company-specific, meaning you can take it with you should you change employers.

CPR & AED Competent Person Training

OSHA defines a “competent person” as someone who “is capable of identifying existing and predictable hazards in [their] surroundings or working conditions which are unsanitary, hazardous, or dangerous to employees.” A competent person has the authorization to take “prompt corrective measures” to minimize or eliminate hazards. They have enough training and/or experience to be “capable of identifying workplace hazards relating to the specific operation and has the authority to correct them.”

Some standards do have additional, specific requirements that must be met in order for an employee to be considered a competent person. Our Competent Person option fulfills these specific requirements.

Why do I need CPR & AED training?

In line with the standards listed above, many industries require employees to be trained in first aid and basic CPR to ensure that individuals receive life-saving treatment in the event of an emergency.
When it comes to refresher training, the standard in some instances are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

CPR & AED Frequently Asked Questions

What are the 3 steps of CPR?

The 3 steps of CPR can be abbreviated to CAB—Compressions, Airway, breathing. When a heart stops beating, or is only quivering, blood stops flowing throughout the body. CPR is when a person performs chest compressions and gives breaths to a patient who has no pulse or who isn’t breathing. Chest compressions, combined with breathing into the patient, help circulate the oxygenated blood throughout the body and into the brain in order to resuscitate the victim.

Is CPR 15 compressions to 2 breaths?

No, CPR is not 15 compressions to 2 breaths. Perform 30 compressions to 2 breaths. The average rate should be 100-120 compressions per minute, meaning that 30 compressions should take you between 15 and 18 seconds.

When should you use an AED?

You should use an AED if you see someone suddenly collapse and discover that they aren’t breathing and don’t have a pulse.

What is the difference between CPR & AED training and First Aid training?

Our CPR & AED training only covers how to perform CPR and use an AED. Our First Aid training covers CPR & AED plus other essential lifesaving skills, like controlling bleeding, treating shock, and more.
