CPR, First Aid, & AED Certification Classes

YEMS offers CPR, First Aid, and/or AED classes to students, faculty, and staff of Yale University as well as private organizations and community members. All classes are taught by YEMS instructors who hold CPR instructor certification from the AAOS Emergency Care & Safety Institute (ECSI).

About our classes

Each class lasts approximately 3 hours and confers CPR certification good for 2 years. The cost of each class varies depending on the level of CPR taught. All YEMS classes are held conveniently on Yale’s campus.

Included in the cost of each class are the following:

  • CPR certification for 2 years
  • CPR certification card
  • Textbook

YEMS offers all levels of CPR certification up to and including the Professional Rescuer level. No prior experience is required, but participants must be 12 years of age or older, and class size is limited. Our most popular classes include the following:

  • CPR and AED Standard
  • CPR, AED, and First Aid (includes first aid techniques)
  • Professional Rescuer CPR (equivalent to AHA Healthcare Provider CPR for hospital employees and EMTs)

Advance registration is required for all classes.

Organizations or groups with 5 or more individuals requiring CPR certification may make special arrangements for a class taught by YEMS. Contact sarah.oyadomari@yale.edu for details.
