Get American Red Cross Certified for CPR, AED and First Aid in Only One Day

Would you like to learn true lifesaving skills in just one day? The Student Recreation Center of the University Student Union (USU) is offering classes throughout the semester to get you certified in CPR, AED and First Aid. For just $59 per person, you’ll receive hands-on training that will prepare you to recognize and respond appropriately to a variety of cardiac, breathing and first aid emergencies. This program will teach the skills you need to know to provide immediate care to a suddenly injured or ill adult, child or infant until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. Plus, this is an affordable and accessible option for fellow Matadors who need this certification to graduate. 

All American Red Cross classes will be held on select Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the USU. Each class is limited to 15 participants. You’ll be provided with workshop equipment including manikins, AEDs (automated external defibrillators), disposable gloves and masks in person.
