CPR & AED Training

Practicing CPR

Learn about the annual UC San Diego CPR & AED training.

EH&S offers training throughout the year to help students, faculty and staff become proficient in administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and using an automated external defibrillator (AED).

These lifesaving techniques are useful in an emergency situation since the average response time for first responders ranges between 8-12 minutes. For each minute delayed, the chance of survival reduces by approximately 10%. CPR and AED training takes a few short hours to learn, giving you the skills necessary to help save a life.
