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 is still waiting on confirmation from MERT about when CPR classes will be held. The current plan is to offer a class sometime in September 2021 and then late in the Fall 2021 semester, as well. For the most up to date information on these CPR class offerings, check out the weekly listserv email (join here). If you have any additional questions, please reach out to our Vice President, John Palmer at

You may also refer to either the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross to find more CPR resources!
