UL Rec Sports offers two CPR & AED certifications through the American Red Cross.
- Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED
- CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer and Health Care Providers
Adult & Pediatric CPR/AED course will prepare you to respond to cardiac and breathing emergencies for people of all ages, including infants, and will educate and train you in the use of automated external defibrillators (AED). This course is offered as a blended learning course meaning that you will complete some work on your own at home and then practice what you have learned with one of our instructors on your scheduled class date. Typical online class length is about 2.5 hours: 1.5 hours online and about 1 hour in person.
- Classes are held in room 155B in Bourgeois Hall and are scheduled on the last Friday of each month for 2 hours to allow for any extra practice or skill review that participants may need. However, classes will typically take about 1 hour to complete. Classes listed below with an "*" have been moved to an earlier date to accommodate holidays and exams.
- Your online work must be completed before participating in-person on your scheduled class date.
