Fitness Trainers and CPR-AED-First Aid Training Requirement

Annie, Annie…are you okay?

As fitness professionals, you have to work every day with people who are stressing their bodies. Often these are overweight, out of shape and high risk clients. People who might be at risk for a heart attack or coronary arrest. But they aren’t the only ones in danger. Even your fittest (footballers suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in recent times on play field), most athletic client could choke on a piece of gum on their way into your gym.  Would you know what to do?

CPR-AED Training is a mandatory requirement for all Fitness (Gym Instructor, Group Exercise, Aqua Instructor), Sports Trainer & Community Activity Programs Coaches.

Some of the best Fitness Associations who require CPR-AED training as illegibility criteria for fitness training profession, some of them are:

American Council on Exercise (ACE);

International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA); &

Australian Fitness Academy (AFA);

What about first aid? Isn’t that important too?  Actually, chances are you are going to run into a cut, scrape, sprained ankle, or upset stomach before you see a heart attack. It is valuable knowledge to have and you’ll likely feel more comfortable practicing as a fitness professional with this skill set. At this time, however, ACE does not require a certificate in First Aid, but an optional training requirement.

American Council on Exercise (ACE) requires certification exam candidates to hold current Adult CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) certificates prior to sitting for the exam. They also require ACE certified professionals to provide proof of their CPR/AED certificates at the time of renewal.

But not just any CPR course will do. Online certifications are not acceptable by any of the associations. ACE requires that candidates complete an Adult CPR/AED course with a live skills check. This means there is a living, breathing instructor watching and checking off your skill performance. An online only CPR course alone cannot provide this live skills check.
