Community CPR

ECSI Logo"Life Saving Training. Simplified."

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) use are lifesaving techniques useful in many emergencies in which someone’s heart has stopped beating. Brandeis Emergency Medical Corps (BEMCo) offers low cost CPR, AED, and First-Aid classes to the Brandeis University community. These classes are taught by BEMCo members that are also Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) trained instructors. Our instructors are certified to teach Heartsaver First Aid, CPR, and AED use as well as Healthcare Provider CPR and AED use. The classroom, video-based, instructor-led course teaches adult, pediatric, and infant CPR and AED use; how to relieve choking in an adult, child, or infant; and basic first aid skills.

BEMCo offers two CPR, AED, and First Aid classes a month for the Brandeis community at a low cost which can teach one invaluable life skills as well as fulfill one of the two required physical education credits. For group sign-ups or questions about CPR classes, please contact us.
