CPR/AED Training/Certification

Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, and Licensed Educators

Indiana Department of Education CPR/AED Training/Certification Requirement for Licensure

CPR/AED training and eventual certification is a requirement set forth by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) for all initial (and at the time of conversion or renewal of any kind) teacher education licenses. An initial teaching license is the first license issued to an applicant, regardless of content area or setting. CPR-Heimlich Maneuver training may be delivered primarily online, but it must include a “hands-on” training/demonstration component with a mannequin. To see additional information about this requirement and a list of approved providers, visit the IDOE website at DOE: CPR and AED Certification (in.gov).

NEW CPR/AED Training/Certification opportunity being offered!

The Office of Teacher Education and Licensure (OTEL) and the Purdue University Fire Department (PUFD) are piloting a new program to offer CPR/AED training and certification to undergraduate and graduate Purdue University Teacher Education students currently enrolled in a licensure program. OTEL and the PUFD are working together to provide a program for Teacher Education students that is credentialed, reliable, convenient, and cost effective for CPR/AED hands-on training. This program will be delivered in a 2-part, “blended” format, with the first portion of the training delivered online, and upon completion, a second in person, hands-on training. The only cost will be the AHA online course, which is $15.00. There is no cost for the hands-on skills session if completed through Purdue University Fire Department. Should you need to cancel either portion of your training, there are instructions for cancellation at the bottom of the course description on the registration page. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Teacher Education and Licensure (OTEL).

There are TWO registrations required for training and certification: The first is for the online portion of the training via the AHA registration link, and then once the online portion of the training is completed you can register for the in person training. The second registration includes the hands-on skills session with a Purdue Fire Department CPR instructor. You can register for both training sessions prior to any training being completed if a date later than the online training is selected for the hands-on training. There are eight hands-on skills sessions scheduled with each session having nine spots. The skill sessions will be held on March 17, 24, 29, April 6, 13, 19, 26, and May 3. The skills session will start at 5:00 pm (EST) in the Aviation Library at the Airport Terminal (TERM) building.
