Classes/Training

Dartmouth EMS offers training opportunities for community members as well as more advanced classes for healthcare providers.

CPR and First Aid Classes

Dartmouth EMS offers American Heart Association certification courses in First Aid and CPR. Most of our CPR courses are at the “Heartsaver” level, though we do offer training at the “Healthcare Provider” (Basic Life Support) level for professional rescuers. Our courses are available at a subsidized rate of $10 per course for undergraduate students. The cost for graduate students, faculty, staff, and community members is $45 per course. If you would like to sign up for one of our classes, please use the form below. **NOTE: students additionally are asked to include their DASH number in the name slot of the form as this is how payment will be collected for the courses.**

We also offer courses for student organizations, community groups, and departments at locations and times of your choice. Please email us at dartmouth.ems@dartmouth.edu to set up a customized course for you at your location in the Upper Valley area.
