CPR Certification Classes

Would you know what to do in a cardiac, breathing or first aid emergency? The right answer could help you save a life. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, our American Red Cross First Aid/CPR/AED courses give you the skills to save a life. All course options align with OSHA's Best Practices for Workplace First Aid Training Programs. A digital certificate is issued upon successful course completion with anytime, anywhere access to certificate and training history. Free online refreshers are available with all course options.  The full course includes: 

  • CPR for adult, child and infant.
  • AED for adult, child and infant.
    Basic First Aid.
  • A two-year certification will be issued to those who successfully complete all practical skills and the written exam (80%).
  • After enrollment on this TTU Portal, an aquatics instructor will reach out to you with a personal digital enrollment link to be completed at your own pace.
    • Participants must complete the online material prior to attending the in-class skills portion. The online content may take up to 3 hours to complete,and the in-person class time varies from 2 - 3 hours (depends on # of participants and practice time needed).
