Sign-up for CPR Training

Please use the form below to sign up for the CPR/First Aid/AED training course to be held during Spring Startup.  Two different trainings will be held in the Egan Building:

  • Friday, January 12, 2018  9:00am - 1:00pm @ [location TBD] - Assistant Professor Neil Nickerson  **This is a traditional, fully in-person training including hands on and classroom.**
  • Friday, January 12, 2018 1:00 - 3:30pm @ [location TBD] - Paul Dorman, Associate Director of Residence Life   **This training involves some online coursework (approx. 2.5 hours) to be completed before the hands on training in January.  This is good for those of you who learn well in online courses and don't want to spend as much time in person.  The classroom part of the training will be done online, while the in-person training will consist of the physical training with partners and CPR dummies.**

Class space is limited, so sign up early. Participants will be chosen on a first come, first served basis.  You will be notified by e-mail if you will participate in this course.

For more information, contact the Academic and Faculty Services Coordinator in the Provost's Office at or 796-6147.

**Please note: the 1:00pm requires advance coursework to be completed online prior to the hands on training.**
