CPR Classes & Certification

Anyone can save a life.
We're empowering our community to do their part.

Almost 90% of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests don't survive. Their lives depend on someone nearby immediately administering CPR— which, if performed in the first few minutes, can triple a person's chance of survival. Do your part to reduce the third leading cause of death, and get CPR certified.

Who can get CPR certified?

UC Davis students, non-UC Davis students, staff, medical professionals, members of the public— everyone's welcome.
