Learn to save lives: Take an onsite CPR/AED class

Are you interested in becoming a certified emergency responder?

UCOP is sponsoring six sessions of the American Heart Association’s Heartsaver® training course, a three-hour, instructor-led classroom course in performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using the automated external defibrillator (AED):

  • Tuesday, Aug. 15, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Kaiser 712
  • Tuesday, Aug. 15, 1 to 4 p.m. in Kaiser 712
  • Thursday, Aug. 17, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Franklin Lobby 1
  • Thursday, Aug. 17, 1 to 4 p.m. in Franklin Lobby 1
  • Thursday, Aug. 24, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Franklin Lobby 1
  • Thursday, Aug. 24, 1 to 4 p.m. in Franklin Lobby 1

Those who successfully complete one of these sessions 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 a maximum of 12 participants, and sessions are expected to fill up, so act quickly to reserve your spot or to be placed on the waiting list.

  • If you’re signing up before 5 p.m. on July 28 OR after Aug. 9, please register through the UC Learning Center (UCLC):
    •     Log in with your UCOP user name and password
    •     Search for “CPR” or “AED” to find class sessions
    •     Click Register next to the session you want, then click Submit
  • From July 29 through Aug. 9, the UCLC will be offline, so to sign up during that time, contact Shaudreya Waterman at 510-987-9827 or She can also answer any questions you may have about this training.

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.
