Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED/First Aid Certification

The Department of Campus Recreation offers the American Red Cross Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED certification. Our certification is open to USA students, faculty/staff, and the community. 

Cost:

Free for USA faculty/staff

$30 for USA students and Student Recreation Center members

$50 for non-USA/non-members

Please note this course is for the layperson, not professional rescuer. **Also note that the College of Nursing no longer accepts American Red Cross CPRO certification to meet the requirements for nursing students; they must have certification from the American Heart Association.

This course has two parts, an online portion followed by an in-person skills demonstration. The in-person skills demonstration will only require two hours to complete. Below are the instructions on how to sign up for a course.
