CPR/AED/First Aid Training

Fall 2019 - Free CPR / AED / First Aid Training

All Faculty & Staff:

Human Resources, in conjunction with the Employee Relations Advisory Committee (ERAC) and Lehigh University Emergency Medical Services (LUEMS), is pleased to announce that CPR/AED/First Aid Training is available for all benefits-eligible faculty and staff. Class size is extremely limited and open seats go fast!

Saving the life of a co-worker, or even a family member, starts with knowing how to help. The American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid class teaches you everything you need to know to calmly and confidently deal with an emergency situation until first responders arrive. 250 Be Well points are awarded to all class participants and lunch is included.

Common medical emergencies that will be discussed include dealing with diabetic symptoms, seizures, heart attacks, allergic reations, and more. This day-long class is conveniently held on-campus and includes lunch. Upon completing the class, the American Heart Association will issue you a certification card, valid for two years. Nearly 700 faculty/staff have already completed this training.
