CPR and First Aid Training

Safety Education

Would you know how to react in an emergency? Are you aware that you are more likely to perform life-saving first aid on a family member than a stranger? Prepare yourself for the unexpected by taking our safety classes. All classes are American Red Cross courses and are offered at various times throughout the year.

Sun Devil Fitness is committed to providing advanced educational opportunities to the ASU community by offering professional certifications. Completion of these certifications can bring students professional opportunities and developed leadership skills, while encouraging personal excellence and growth.

All certifications are valid for two years.

Schedule a Class Designed Just for Your Group!

ASU staff, departments or organizations can receive training on responding to emergencies.

Instructors can customize training topics to best suit your group's needs to include or highlight multiple levels of CPR/AED and First Aid classes.

Classes can be held at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex or at your location. All you need to provide is a mediated classroom. To schedule a class, we will need at least a two-week notice and a minimum class size of five participants.
