CPR & First Aid For Personal Trainers

Be Prepared For Anything

Personal trainers and fitness professionals have a unique need for First Aid and CPR training. Your work puts you in contact with people at every point in their fitness journeys, from athletes in their prime to people who have serious health challenges, and involves physical activity. The risk for accident or injury is there, as well as the potential for serious cardiac events, including heart attacks.

As the Personal Trainer, you’re the person who’s going to be on the scene when these events happen. First Response Training International prepares you with the skills you need to provide appropriate care until emergency personnel arrive. You’ll learn how to evaluate a situation and victim, when to call 911, and how to administer CPR and First Aid, and how to utilize an AED in emergency situations.

As a Personal Trainer, you’re committed to helping your clients become healthier. The skills you learn during CPR and First Aid training can help you save their lives. It’s a meaningful extension of your professional skill set, and in many states, CPR Certification is mandatory for personal trainers.

OSHA’s standard for first aid training in general industry is listed in 1910.151, provides:

Medical services and first aid

(a)The employer shall ensure the ready availability of personnel for advice and consultation on matters of plant health.

(b)In the absence of an infirmary, clinic, or hospital in near proximity to the workplace which is used for the treatment of all injured employees, a person or persons shall be adequately trained to render first aid. Adequate first aid supplies shall be readily available.

The bloodborne pathogens standard at 1910.1030(g)(2)

This requires employers to provide training to any employees who have occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials, such as employees assigned medical or first aid duties by their employers. The standard at 29 CFR 1910.1030(b) defines „occupational exposure“ as „reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials that may result from the performance of an employee’s duties.“ If an employee is trained in first aid and identified by the employer as responsible for rendering medical assistance as part of his/her job duties, that employee is covered by the bloodborne pathogens standard.
