First Aid and CPR

​In order for a student to be recommended for teacher certification through Michigan Department of Education the student must provide a valid adult/child CPR and First Aid certificate to Sarah Hansen in EHS 421 just prior to student teaching. Students MUST take First Aid/CPR courses through one of the Michigan Department of Education approved course providers. Fully online courses are not acceptable; learning First Aid and Adult & Pediatric CPR require demonstration and practice in a classroom. 

Any individual with physical limitations that make it impractical to obtain Adult/Child CPR and First Aid certification should complete a form available from CSS in EHS 421.

Your original Adult/Child CPR and First Aid certification cards must be signed and turned into EHS 421. You can drop them off in EHS 421, mail them, or fax them (BOTH front and back of cards) to 989-774-3624, Attn: Teacher Certification. 

It is a requirement for students to complete First Aid and Adult/Child CPR training prior to student teaching. If you complete your student teaching experience more than one year prior to being recommended by CMU to the state for teacher certification you will need to check the expiration date and re-certify if necessary.

If you run into problems getting certified, contact Sarah Hansen as soon as possible at
