Basic Life Support/Basic First Aid Training Classes must be conducted in accordance with local government regulations.  Follow the latest Guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Note: Anyone who has been ill or exhibits any signs of illness within 24 hours prior to the class (fever, cough, breathing difficulties/shortness of breath, or other symptoms) should not attend class.


Below is a list of practices that must be followed during Basic Life Support/First Aid classes to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus:

  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet of separation between all participants.

  • Instructors and students must wear face masks during class.

  • Instructors and students must perform hand hygiene using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

  • Gloves must be worn during all skill practices.

  • Use of an AMBU Man manikin is recommended which allows each student to use his/her own individual face piece and head bag for giving breaths.  Clean the chest after each student.

  • If the above is not available, when possible a 1:1 student-to-manikin ratio should be utilized. 

  • If multiple students must use the same manikin, it must be sanitized before being used by each student according to CDC standards. Direct contact with the manikin while providing rescue breaths must be avoided by employing an emergency face shield such as a Rescue Key for each individual student.

  • The AED trainer must be sanitized after use by each student.

  • All manikins must be cleaned after each class. The cleaning procedures must be in accordance with CDC guidance and manufacturers’ directions.

  • All other non-disposable equipment must also be cleaned following CDC guidance and manufacturers’ directions.
