CPR and First Aid classes

The Center for Emergency Programs offers a varity of CPR and First Aid courses

Many of our courses can be taken for certification through the American Heart Association and all of our courses can be taken for general knowledge. For individuals looking for CPR training, we offer monthly BLS Healthcare Provider CPR Courses. For groups, business/agency we offer several options that can be tailored to your needs. 

Heartcode BLS Provider CPR Skills Session for individuals

The Heartcode BLS provider CPR skills session is the skills session associated with the American Heart Association's Heartcode BLS provider CPR hybrid course. It is taught online through the American Heart Association with a skills session taught through the Center for Emergency Programs. You must register for and complete both sections to receive a certification card. This course meets the prerequisite for EMT courses.

Due to Covid-19 we have made the following adjustments to all skills sessions: Each student will be required to wear a mask when not directly working on a CPR manikin. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided. Social distancing will be enforced. 

    To register for and see the cost of the Heartcode BLS provider course visit the American Heart Association and select Heartcode BLS. 

    To register for the skills session visit Umarket and select CPR courses from the left hand menu. You may then pick the day you wish to attend. The skills session cost is $35.00.

    Heartcode Health Care Provider skills session: $35.00
