CPR, AED, & NARCAN training

Cardiac events can strike anyone at any time. Risks increases with age and during increased physical activity. Learning how to perform CPR and use an automatic external defibrillator (AED) make it easy for anyone to save a life. Training increases awareness, familiarity, and increases overall confidence to intervene when necessary. 

In the event of a cardiac arrest, remember to follow medical emergency procedures and call 911.

In-person training

In partnership with OHM Medical, SFU offers free 1 hour training sessions to staff and faculty on a bi-annual basis (spring and fall semesters). Workshops are limited to 25 participants per session. Trained instructors will coach participants on how to perform hands-only CPR, how to use an AED, and how to administer Narcan spray.
