CPR / AED / First Aid

Iowa State University offers employees, students and groups two options for CPR/AED training through a contracted vendor. Fees include course materials and two-year National Safety Council certification. The certificate is issued by the National Safety Council and meets the 2015 CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) guidelines. The training offered is approved by the Iowa Department of Human Services. Click here to view the states where the training offered by the National Safety Council is approved.

It is the responsibility of campus AED owners to provide or arrange for training and refresher training in AED use for staff and maintain on-site training records.

  • AED owners must identify staff that may be on-site during normal business hours and available to operate AED equipment. Units should make a reasonable effort to train sufficient staff in order to have at least one trained staff person on site during normal business hours.

  • Iowa State University recommends that all staff identified for AED training successfully complete an American Heart Association CPR/AED course or a nationally acceptable equivalent. Competency is determined by the certified course instructor.

  • Training records, including a description of the training program and refresher training schedule, will be kept on file by the AED owner.
