Become Heartsaver certified: CPR and AED training begins this week
Are you interested in becoming a certified emergency responder?
UCOP is sponsoring several three-hour training sessions of the American Heart Association’s Heartsaver® training course, a classroom, instructor-led course in performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using the automated external defibrillator (AED).
Those who successfully complete one session will receive an American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR AED Course Completion Card that is valid for two years. The classes are offered through OP’s Office of Risk Services.
Registration is open to those interested in becoming certified or in recertifying. Every student will have hands-on skills practice with a mannequin and receive feedback from the instructor.
Each session is limited to only 12 participants, and many of the following sessions have already filled up, so act quickly to reserve your spot or to be placed on the waiting list:
- Thursday, July 10, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., 5320 Franklin
- Thursday, July 10, 1 to 4 p.m., 5320 Franklin
- Tuesday, July 15, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., 1012 Kaiser

UCOP established the Oakland-based CPR AED program several years ago. Such programs have been shown to dramatically improve the survivability of a heart attack. Certified emergency responders and other staff trained in first aid and as floor wardens are a critical component of UCOP’s overall emergency plans.
