At Hagerstown Community College, you have three options to get cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification. All occur in the evening and count for 0.5 CEUs.

  • The Basic Life Support (BLS) course occurs in the span of an evening with four hours of instruction. It also covers how to relieve choking and use an Automated External Defibrilator (AED). This class is catered to individuals in the health care field who have not been certified previously.

  • The CPR recertification course lasts two hours and is a refresher on the topics covered in the BLS course.

  • The ASHI CPR and AED course caters to instructors, childcare providers, emergency response teams, and others who do not work in healthcare. It lasts three hours, providing instruction on adult, child, and infant CPR as well as on AED operation.
