CPR Classes

MERT traditionally holds Basic Life Support CPR/AED classes where they offer a special price for Penn Nursing students. The three-hour course is the American Heart Association’s BLS for Healthcare Providers course, which is approved for compliance.

SNAP was really appreciative and grateful that we were able to host two different CPR classes through MERT during Fall 2021—one in September and one in November. With the evolving state of the pandemic, we are unsure what CPR classes for Spring 2022 will look like as we await confirmation from Penn Admin and MERT. However, we remain hopeful and do foresee opportunities for CPR classes. We will keep all SNAP members updated!
