Welcome to CPR & First Aid Training

Become a Certified CPR and First Aid Provider

Frederick Community Colleges offers CPR and First Aid classes designed for everyone. From professionals fulfilling job requirements to laypersons seeking knowledge about what to do in case of emergency, instruction and hands-on training is delivered in accordance with American Heart Association guidelines. CPR Basic Life Support for the Healthcare Provider satisfies requirements to renew current Healthcare Provider CPR certifications. Classes are held at our newly-renovated Monroe Center, located at 200 Monroe Avenue in Frederick, MD.

Summer and Fall Registration is Open

FCC summer/fall classes will be delivered primarily online to maintain public safety. Face to face instruction and student interactions will only be conducted when it is necessary, required, and feasible to do so in a safe environment. Classes will be offered in online, structured remote, and hybrid learning formats. Comprehensive student resources remain available remotely to deliver College services to students. 

FCC is currently in Stage 1 of the Frederick Community College Roadmap to Resilience and Recovery plan.  As we continue to develop ways to safely and thoughtfully offer a few in-person instructional experiences, we tried to anticipate questions and provide answers about what to expect should you register for a class that meets on Main Campus or at the Monroe Center. Additional information is available here.
