CPR cards issued by this program are good for a period of two years. It is the card holders responsibility to find a CPR Refresher class. The Charleston Fire Department CPR Program is there for initial certification and while we’re happy to have you back – we cannot guarantee class seats for renewal!

This program meets all regulatory requirements for current CPR standards. Participants will be issued an American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) CPR/AED card when they successfully complete the course. Participants who stay to complete the optional STOP-THE-BLEED add-on course will receive a certificate for that as well.
This program is designed for people with no prior medical knowledge or training. Those seeking recertification in CPR/AED may use this course to complete that requirement.
No. This course is intended for non-medical personnel. BLS is a credential specific to first responders/medical personnel.
The Charleston Fire Department CPR Program is currently in its pilot phase for 2019 and intend to host 4 classes with a student cap of 18 per class. If the program is successful, our goal is to expand this offering in 2020.
