First Aid and CPR Requirements for the Initial Certification of Michigan Teachers.
According to the State of Michigan:
Coursework must include first aid, adult CPR, and child CPR.
Online courses are not acceptable (our blended option IS acceptable!) – learning first aid and CPR requires demonstration and practice.
Candidates are to provide the actual card(s) to the teacher preparation institution for photocopying. The institution will keep the copies with the candidates’ academic records.
Grand Rapids Healthcare Training is an Approved Provider of Courses for First Aid and CPR for Michigan licensing for provisional or student teacher certification.
For new or renewing cardholders.
Approximately 4 hours.

If sitting in a classroom for an entire class isn’t your thing, you can sign up for a class that is 1 hour of a skills check in our office and the rest of the class (watching the videos, the bookwork type of stuff) done online with the American Heart Association. Yes, it’s accepted by the State of Michigan for licensing. You get the same card, but much less time commitment. Check out the Class Schedules calendar and look for a class with the word “blended” in the title.
