ECSI is proud to be your source for CPR and First Aid training materials for Boy Scouts of America courses!

The Emergency Care & Safety Institute (ECSI) is pleased to be recognized by the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) as an approved CPR/AED and First Aid training provider. ECSI offers engaging and effective training programs that meet Boy Scouts of America training requirements and help BSA staff members and volunteers teach scouts to provide life-saving care in the event of an emergency.

The ECSI Difference

Discover why training with ECSI, an internationally recognized training organization, is the smart choice for your council:

  • Ease of Administration and Zero Fees. Joining ECSI is easy and involves no training center or instructor fees. The national agreement between BSA and ECSI gives each unit, district, or council the ability to act as a stand-alone emergency care training center, or ECSI Education Center. With this independence, BSA staff and volunteers can teach emergency care courses as needed within their local scouting chapter and do not have to worry about paying recurring fees. We also offer instructor reciprocity for those with adequate teaching experience along with free Instructor Development Course materials for those that would like to become a new First Aid or CPR/AED instructor.
  • Training Tailored to Your Needs. With flexible course delivery options, you can offer your scouts the training they need in the manner in which they will learn best. Simply purchase one of these four items in order to obtain a digital course completion card for the course: student manuals, student eBooks, online course access codes, pocket guides. The digital course completion card can be sent via email or printed out by the instructor and issued to scouts at the training location. Please note, an on-site skills check demonstrated to an instructor is required in order to earn a nationally recognized course completion card from ECSI.
  • High-Quality Materials. When you order your training materials from ECSI, you do not have to sacrifice quality for affordability. Our highly developed student manuals and interactive online courses feature the latest medical content and are filled with tips and tools to ensure that Boy Scouts of all levels are prepared to respond to an emergency situation.
