Classes

Coast Life Support District periodically sponsors classes supporting emergency medical response. All classes are open to the community.  Information on upcoming classes can be found here.

Emergency Medical Technician and Emergency Medical Responder (aka First Responder)

In conjunction with Mendocino County Career Technical Education (CTE), CLSD sponsors an annual certification course for each. These courses are typically attended by current and prospective members of local fire departments, state and county park staff, and Sheriff Department personnel, although they are open to the public. For more information, contact Operations Manager Evan Dilks.

The 2016 EMR class  finished in December, 2016.  The 2017 EMT class began on January 24, 2017.  Information on upcoming classes can be found here.


Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation/Automatic External Defribulator (CPR/AED)

CLSD offers CPR/AED training at three levels: classes for the lay community, for professionals who require certification as a job qualification, and for medical providers.  Some Heartsaver CPR/AED classes include First Aid training.   For more information, send email to CPR Training or call (707) 884-1829 x31.  Information on upcoming classes can be found here.


Skills Practice and Test for BLS for Healthcare Provider Cards

CLSD is now offering the skills practice and skills test portions of the two online AHA courses that will result in a BLS for Healthcare Provider card.  To get your BLS for HCP card, sign up for and complete either of these online AHA courses:

Heartcode BLS Part 1

BLS for Healthcare Providers Online Part 1

It is best to contact us and schedule a skills session before completing the online course, as the skills session must be completed within 60 days of online course completion.  Print the completion certificate for the course you take and bring it to the skills session.  The charge for the skills session and the card for 1-3 people is $50 each.  For groups of 4-6 the charge for the skills session and card is $30 each.  For more information or to schedule a skills session, send email to CPR Training or call (707) 884-1829 x31.

Funding support for this program has been provided by the Community Foundation of Mendocino County.
