CPR Classes - American Heart Association Certification

The School of Nursing offers CPR Certification Classes once a month.The course is AHA Healthcare Providers/BLS with AED (no first aid). Classes are offered on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Some Saturdays we are able to offer more than one class.

This class is offered in two parts. First, you wil complete online training (paid via AHA website) which is a $22 cost. After completion of the online lessons, you must attend a skills practice and testing session on our campus with a certified instructor. The cost for the skills part of the course is $30 payable by cash or check to the instructor on the day of the class. Total cost of the two parts of the class is $52.  The CPR cards are usually ready the week after the class.  They will be available for pick-up at our office, or you can provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope and have it mailed to you. 

PLEASE READ: The class may be canceled due to low enrollment.  You will be given 72 hours advance notice if the class is canceled.  Please note: we are now located on the main CSUSM campus which requires a parking permit to be able to park on campus. Parking information available at 

To attend a class, fill out the Online Registration Form located underneath the CPR tab.
