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.

CPR and AED Training

Learn how to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest using hands-only CPR from professional first responders. Get hands-on experience with our practice mannequins. No CPR cards will be issued.


Each session is made up of three half-hour sessions:

  • Hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
  • How to use an automated external defibrillator (AED)
  • Question and answer
