About Basic First Aid & CPR:
Basic First Aid & CPR are requirements for Ride Leaders & Coaches who will be working directly with students on bikes or in the field.
This certification covers basic emergency treatment and can only be fulfilled by a hands-on class (online courses will not count). The CPR portion of this class is required to obtain the WFA certification, but may be taken out of sequence. The CPR portion will be taught during the first half of the class and then anyone scheduled to take the WFA will be excused. The Basic First Aid will be taught during the second half of the class. The Utah League has partnered with Intermountain Hospitals to offer these course specifically for our coaches. Certification is valid for 2 years
