CPR and First Aid

As of August 1st, 2023 teacher candidates no longer need to provide a valid adult/child CPR and First Aid certificate to the Office of Educator Preparation Programs (OEPP) in order to be recommended for initial teacher certification through the Michigan Department of Education. Instead, these important trainings are now required to take place within the first year of a teacher’s employment.  New teachers who do not already hold a valid CPR/First Aid completion card and who are employed in classroom teaching positions on or after August 1, 2023, will be provided Michigan Department of Education-approved first aid and CPR training as part of the 15 days of professional development required by MCL 380.1526.

The OEPP will no longer be coordinating on-campus training opportunities. If you are interested in taking CPR training, please see the training offered through University Recreation (URec).
