In order to be certified in the State of Michigan, you must have valid First Aid and both the Child and the Adult CPR training. Michigan State University's College of Education does not provide this training directly to interns. You may find that someone in the district in which you are placed offers this training for no charge to school employees, but be certain to check whether the training will include everything you need for certification. Most likely, you will have to pay for this training yourself. For the official State of Michigan requirements for First Aid and CPR, see http://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,1607,7-140-6530_5683_14795-75289--,00.html, including a description of the required documentation and a list of approved providers.

You cannot be recommended for certification until you have completed your CPR and First Aid training and delivered the required documentation to the College of Education Student Affairs Office.
