CPR Requirement Update

Since it is hard to get a new CPR certification because of social distancing restrictions, we are allowing students to apply to either the EMT or Paramedic Programs without having their CPR/BLS certification. We, as a program, are working to hold a certification class for incoming students once social distancing restrictions have eased enough for us to have the class on campus.

If you still want to get CPR certified in Austin, you have a couple of options. The following instructors are still giving training right now:

Pilar Atocha, AHA CPR Instructor
(512) 743-2480
Basic Life Support (BLS): CPR & AED for Healthcare Professionals
AHA Certificate valid for 2 years
Cost: $45 per student

Austin CPR Experts
AHA BLS for the Healthcare Provider
Cost: $60 per student
