CPR and First Aid Training

Duke EMS is an American Heart Association certified Training Site at the Basic Life Support Level. We offer certifying classes in CPR/AED and First Aid for non-medical personnel as well as medical personnel. We also offer shorter, non-certifying courses in CPR/First Aid for those who are interested in the skills but do not have the time, money, or need for full certification. If you are interested in these free, non-certifying courses, follow this link. For certification offerings and dates, see the links below.

*For groups with five or more participants, we can teach the class at your location and on a date of your choosing.

**Duke EMS reserves the right to cancel any scheduled course at any time. If you have pre-paid for your course, you will be fully refunded.

***You can pay in cash or check at the start of class. Groups can also send a request to duemsexternal@duke.edu so that an electronic Duke payment page be created to accept credit card/p-card
