First Aid & CPR Training

For more information contact FSO/MT  

Or Course instructor Steve Shane 


Two CPR/First Aid classes have set up for the members of our flotilla. I am starting with only two classes this year as last year I scheduled several and ended up having to cancel some for lack of interest. Rest assured, I will hold more classes if there is interest. If you are unable to make either of these dates, please fill out the form at the bottom of this sections.

These classes will be taught under the auspices of the American Safety and Health Institute. This agency is the same one that I uses to certify the Gold Side's boat crews.

As reminder, all CPR and First Aid certifications are good for two years. If you took a class last year you do not need to take it again this year (although you are welcome to). If you took a class prior to last year, your certification has expired, and should be renewed. We are specially encouraging all members involved in operations to be sure to be qualified due to the nature of our mission. However, it should be noted that these classes are not just for operations. Vessel examiners, marine safety personnel, and just plain folks will benefit from having this knowledge (or perhaps someone else close to you will benefit from your knowledge).

New this year, the two classes will be different, the first one will be only for Auxiliarist that have a current, or recently expired (2 or 3 months) CPR/First Aid certification. This re-certification class is a little shorter. It will begin at 0800 and hopefully be over before 1200. This course will be on TBA- Re-certification class for those currently certified or just expired

The second class will be the full CPR/First Aid initial certification. This class will start at 0900, break for lunch, and hopefully be through before 1500 (the exact timing depends on the skill of the participants and the discussions generated).  This class will be offered on the following two Saturdays, TBA,  in the South Portland Coast Guard Station classroom (more classes of each type will be set up if demand requires)

Please pick the class that best fits your needs and schedule. I need to point out that there is a strict limit of 10 students per class. Once you have decided on which class you want to participate in, please email me as soon as you can. This is a first come, first serve situation. Again, due to changing cost of the certification cards, there has to be an $10.00 charge for taking the class. As an additional service to our members, I will have at the class a nifty little key ring packet that contains a CPR mouth shield and a pair of gloves that can be purchased for $5.00. These are very small and quite handy to have.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me or use the form below. Again, as a reminder, due to the time it takes to set up the manikins, just showing up the day of the class will not work. Be sure to email me your choice of class dates as soon as you can to insure a spot.


Stephen L. Shane,  Instructor
