Campus Safety Factsheet


The purpose of the courses in the First Aid/CPR/AED program is to help participants recognize and respond appropriately to cardiac, breathing, and first aid emergencies; and to know how to care for a suddenly injured or ill person until more advanced medical personnel arrive and take over. The course may also satisfy OSHA workplace or other regulatory requirements.

Upcoming Classes


Q. What is CPR training and why should I take a class?2023-10-03T15:16:22-07:00

With a half-million cardiac arrests each year, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can help save a life if a person’s breathing or heart stops. It’s not just for healthcare workers and emergency responders. In fact, CPR can double or triple the chance of survival when bystanders take action.

Q. Do you offer different training class formats?2023-10-03T15:17:22-07:00

Yes, CS-Med uses American Red Cross Services to teach training in multiple formats* including: In Person: Delivered in a traditional classroom setting, our in-person first aid courses combine lecture with hands-on skills sessions. The course culminates with testing, which allows participants to receive a two-year certification. Blended Learning Learning: Featuring award-winning simulation learning, our blended learning programs combine self-paced, interactive instruction and in-person skills sessions. Blended Learning courses allow you to learn on your schedule, then demonstrate your skills to a certified instructor.

Q. I lost my certificate. How do I get another one?2023-10-03T15:19:06-07:00

Visit the American Red Cross “Find My Certificate” page and follow the instructions. If you require a printed certificate, contact 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and select the prompt “Training and Certification” for assistance. To help process your request, please have the following information available when you call: course name, course location, date, course instructor’s name, and your name. Most Red Cross certifications, including First Aid/CPR/AED, CPR/AED for Healthcare Providers are valid for two years from the course completion date. If more than two years has passed, you will need to take another class to get recertified.

Q. Is it a requirement to perform CPR on the ground during the Basic Life Support course to become certified?2023-10-03T15:21:18-07:00

Participants in the Basic Life Support course may demonstrate the primary assessment and the CPR skill as they would perform it in their environment of care. For example, depending on their scope of practice, they may demonstrate the primary assessment and CPR skill on an elevated surface that is firm, flat and stable which would be used in the scope of their care, such as a hospital bed or stretcher. Or they may demonstrate these skills on the ground.
