The Office of Student Affairs offers Basic Life Support (BLS) certification for CU alumni, faculty, staff, students, and unaffiliated community members. This is a 4-hour traditional classroom course where BLS is taught and demonstrated. Participants learn to recognize life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, and use an AED.      

You don't need to be a healthcare provider to participate. The BLS course provides a two-year certification through the American Heart Association.

Fall 2021 classes coming soon. If a course is listed but not available, the session is full.​

​​​​​​Participants will receive the BLS Provider Manual at the beginning of class. The course will be held in the Education 2 North Building, #3108. The class will start promptly at 5:30pm so we suggest getting there early or you may not be permitted into the class.

Visitors are encouraged to park in the Ignacio or Georgetown lots. A parking map can be found in the confirmation email after registering for the course.
