• Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillator Program (CPR/AED)


     

    Overview

    CPR Training The LAUSD American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center is managed by District Nursing Services. The program offers Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and First Aid Training to all District employees. After successful completion of the training, each participant receives a certification card from the AHA, which is valid for two years. The classes meet the State Teacher Credentialing requirement for CPR. Class schedules are posted in the Learning Zone on the LAUSD website. Employees have two options in which to meet the certification requirements: Option 1 - completing an all-day classroom course or Option 2 - completing an online cognitive portion, done with the AHA, followed by an in-classroom skills practice and testing session (2 hours). Both classroom options are conducted at District Nursing Services Training Room. For questions contact District Nursing Services at (213) 202-7580.
