That all Police Officers who’s regular duties are not administrative only must complete 8 hours of First Aid, CPR, and AED every two years.

All Police Officers who Completed their First Aid, CPR, and AED training before April 1st, 2017 must complete an “update” class (POST 21798) meeting the new content requirement standards prior to their next required certification.

Those Officers that complete their training after April 1st 2017 must comply with the new standards. AHA classes are permissible as Red Cross Classes have been eliminated from Title 22.

There are two methods available to complete the 8 hr required update class.
