CPR and First Aid Courses

Safe Boating America offers CPR, AED and First Aid Courses sponsored by the American Heart Association.

Coast Guard policy dictates that all applicants for a Merchant Mariner License (Captains License) be current in CPR and First Aid and provide Certification that they completing a course within 12 months prior to their application.

It is important to note that the applicant MUST be current in CPR and First Aid. The majority of CPR courses offered do not provide certification in First Aid. The Certification presented to the Coast Guard MUST indicate that a First Aid module was completed.

You can take our AHA CPR and First Aid courses at a convenient location or take the course ONLINE and go for your practical exam in-person at a local testing center.
