Grand County EMS is the American Heart Association Training Center for this region of southeastern Utah. We oversee Training Sites for our own department, Moab Regional Hospital, the National Park Service, and Bureau of Land Management. Our Training Center provides classes and certification for all Heartsaver and Basic Life Support (BLS) courses, as well as Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) courses. Grand County EMS is in the process of adding the Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) discipline to our Training Center.
CPR certification can be achieved in several different ways. Traditional in person classes are taught on a regular basis. You can also take an online class from the American Heart Association by going to elearing.heart.org. Once you have complete the online portion you will need to schedule a CPR skills test with us.
We also teach basic and advanced EMT courses. Our service typically hosts one basic and one advanced class per year. Classes run roughly three months long and are academically challenging. If you are looking for a career in EMS, or just want to know what to do when someone is sick or injured, an EMT class might be what you are looking for.
Grand County EMS also teaches a variety of other classes, including stop the bleed courses, babysitting courses, hands only CPR courses, and many others. Please contact us today if you are interested in any of these or other courses.
