First Aid Instructor Class
Grant Funded First Aid Instructor Classfirst aid kit

The Anaheim/Santa Ana UASI has funded an instructor class for staff and volunteers who are interested in teaching First Aid, CPR, AED and Wilderness & Remote First Aid to volunteers. 

Grant funding is extremely limited and therefore only a few spaces remain open for Anaheim Volunteers.  If you are interested, please submit a registration form which must be approved by the program before you will be accepted into class.  Anyone not accepted into class will remain on the waiting list in the event a student cancels.

To enroll, you must have a current First Aid, CPR, AED certification and be able to complete a pre-test with 80% proficiency or greater.  To be certified, you must attend all class meetings, and pass class exams with 80% proficiency or greater.

CERT Meeting Schedule
The Volunteer Meeting Schedules are subject to change.  Please confirm in advance of the meeting.
