CPR/First Aid Classes

After a brief interruption in course offerings during the Fall 2018 semester, CUEMS is proud to offer CPR and first aid certification through the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI). We decided to change our certification provider to ensure that we may continue to provide these classes without charge to the Cornell Community. CUEMS offers several levels of certification detailed below. All classes are taught by CUEMS members who are certified ASHI instructors; class offerings are subject to instructor availability. Please note that weekday classes are generally offered in the evening hours, while weekend classes are generally offered in the morning or early afternoon hours.

To request a CPR or first aid class for a group or individual, please click on the link to complete the form, and our Community Education Officer will contact you shortly to confirm your request. We are more than happy to schedule a class as much as several months in advance, but ask that no class be requested within two weeks of the preferred start date.
