United States Coast Guard Approval

EMS Safety’s CPR, AED and First Aid course is approved by the Department of Homeland Security, United States Coast Guard (USCG), National Maritime Center.

Documenting USCG-Approved Training

There are two documents a student will need to document successful course completion of the EMS Safety CPR, AED and First Aid course.

1. The EMS Safety Course Completion Card -AND-

2. The EMS Safety USCG Course Completion Certificate

The USCG will NOT accept an EMS Safety CPR, AED and First Aid Completion Card by itself. The EMS Safety Course Completion Card MUST be accompanied by an EMS Safety USCG Course Completion Certificate.

Issuing USCG Course Completion Certificates

EMS Safety Training Centers and authorized instructors may issue USCG Course Completion Certificates directly to students who successfully complete EMS Safety CPR, AED and First Aid. For more information on documentation and issuing EMS Safety USCG Course Completion Certificates, login to your Otis Portal and click on the Approvals tab in the left menu.

Please Note: EMS Safety Services is no longer accepting USCG alternate site-approval requests.
