GWRRA Rider Education has traditionally encouraged members to obtain and maintain certifications in First Aid and CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation). These basic skills are easily learned, but may make the difference between life and death in the critical minutes before professional help can arrive. There are a number of fine providers of this type of training available, including familiar names such as the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association.

Medic First Aid Patch

GWRRA is a recognized corporate provider of the MEDIC FIRST AID international® program. As such, our certified instructor members are able to provide this high quality program to other members at a very affordable cost. In addition to First Aid and CPR, many of the Districts are proud to have recently added an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training option to the available courses.

Whatever your preferred provider, we strongly encourage you to get trained and stay current in your certification. “Education and Preparedness” are important steps in fulfillment of our motto, “Safety Is For Life.” If you would like to have more information on becoming a GWRRA MEDIC FIRST AID Instructor, contact your District coordinator listed below.
