RecWell Employee Training


First Aid/CPR/AED Training

RecWell staff are required to be currently certified in CPR/AED and First-Aid. Each semester, training is made available to current staff members of the Recreation and Wellness Department. The training is comprised of an online learning portion and a hands-on training. The online learning portion must be completed prior to attending the hands-on training. 

Here's how to become certified:

  1. Sign up for a Practical Skills Sessions (hands-on training)
  2. Complete online learning portion at American Red Cross
    • Online learning time is approximately 2 hours
    • To complete the online learning, you’ll be prompted to login – first time users need to create a login for Red Cross
  3. After completing the online learning portion, print your certificate (if you cannot print it, take a photo on your phone)
  4. Attend the practical skills session (hands-on training) for which you signed up
    • Hands-on training is approximately 2 hours
    • Skills sessions conclude with multiple choice exams
  5. Done! Once your training is over, allow a few days for your certification to be processed. You’ll receive an email from the Red Cross with a link to your digital certification. Turn in your completion certificate (or show from phone)
  6. Submit your time sheet for 4 hours paid time. In the comments enter: Adult CPR/AED and first-aid training
