Risk Management and Safety provides in-person certifications for Basic Adult CPR/AED and First Aid training as well as Box Truck and Trailer practicals (road exams) for the CMV program. We also offer customized in-person department safety trainings.
We offer a CPR/AED only class as well as a CPR/AED/First Aid class. You can become certified in basic adult CPR/AED and First Aid through the American Red Cross. Certification is valid for 2 years. This is open to all BYU employees and students. CPR/AED/First Aid Certification is $28.50 and just CPR/AED is $22.50. Individuals interested in just the CPR/AED course may register through this link and individuals interested in the CPR/AED/First Aid course may register through this link.
All interested individuals may register to be certified through byu.myabsorb.com. The schedule is updated every month and two classes are held monthly based off interest.
Departments who are requiring that their employees or student take these classes will be billed by Risk Management. Employees and students who are taking this outside of BYU employment need to pay for the class prior to coming for the in-person practical exam. Prices are set by American Red Cross. Below is the link for self-pay.
For any questions, please contact us at 801-422-4468.
Employees who will be driving a BYU box truck or pulling a dual axil trailer will need to be certified through the CMV program which includes passing a practical road exam. All documentation for the CMV program must be completed and gathered into a driver file prior to a road exam being administered. The employee taking the practical should be taught how to drive safely with their supervisor as the practical is a road test. CDL drivers do not need to take a practical as they have already done so with the state.
Physical Facilities, Dining Services, BYUB, and Print and Mail has a designated employee who will administer your practical. For all others, please contact us at 801-422-3119 to schedule this road test.
