AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION (AHA) CPR and First Aid Training Classes
The Brownsburg Fire Territory provides CPR, AED, and First Aid certifications based on the American Heart Association Classes and Guidelines. Students who successfully complete their course will be provided with an e-card, valid for two years. Currently, we do not have traditional large group class sessions available; however, we do scheduled appointments for the skill practice and testing for AHA CPR AED and First Aid courses. We only provide this service for official AHA classes. Please see the information below on how to purchase and complete the online course and then schedule the in-person skills practice and testing session. The skills practice and testing sessions are scheduled in half hour time blocks.

STEP TWO: In-Person Practice/Skills Testing
Contact the Division Chief of EMS via Email to schedule in-person practice/skills testing >>
Students who have completed the online course portion will be able to print a certificate needed for STEP TWO which is an in-person skills test with an AHA Certified Instructor. You must bring a printed copy of your online completion certificate to the appointment as the skills session is unable to be conducted and a card cannot be issued without this certificate. Certificates from the online course should be dated less than 60 days from the date of the in-person skills practice and testing appointment.
Each session must be scheduled, is 30 minutes long, allows for an initial Q&A/practice session, and concludes by demonstrating the skills learned. Testing is held at the Brownsburg Fire Territory Headquarters located at 470 East Northfield Drive in Brownsburg, Indiana 46112.
The fees for the skills practice and testing sessions are:
BLS for Healthcare Providers...$10.00
Payment is payable by EXACT cash or check only and due at the time of the appointment. Checks should be made out to "Brownsburg Fire Territory." We are unable to accept debit or credit cards for CPR appointments.
