UC Davis Health System Health-Care Provider Biennial CPR Renewal

Registration for the January and Feburary 2015 biennial CPR renewal classes are coming soon. All employees who are required to maintain their CPR certification are encouraged to renew during this cycle (even those who recently renewed). There will be limited options for those who do not renew during this time until the next cycle occuring in 2017. Employees planning to maintain their CPR certification through an outside agency are not required to attend a renewal class.

Course description

This renewal class meets Joint Commission requirements for UC Davis Health System staff and is recommended for certification of internal UC Davis Health System health-care providers only. Course curriculum follows guidelines based on current research, resuscitative science journals and papers, including the 2010 AHA guidelines for CPR and emergency cardiovascular care.

This is an online module and skills check only course. Staff must complete the online CPR module, which includes watching a video, reviewing content and completing an exam. When the online module is complete, staff will attend a skills check only session. Length of time: ~1 and half hours for the online module and ~½ hour for the skills check. Staff must demonstrate CPR skills without coaching according to the CPR guidelines. If you do not pass the skills check, you will be required to attend one of our regular CPR class sessions.

Class size is limited; please sign up early. Cancel your registration if you are unable to attend. CPPN certificates of completion will be issued to participants who pass the written evaluation and correctly demonstrate skills on the mannequins. If you need an AHA CPR card you should take an AHA course.

Prerequisites and preparation
