Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our CPR classes has been suspended until further notice. Training will be available when it is approved by the Massachusetts DPH and the University.
The Mission CPR program reflects the initiative of UMass EMS to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and to certify individuals both on the UMass campus and in the surrounding community.
The UMass EMS Mission CPR Program offers two certifications under the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI).
Our classes are taught by EMTs certified at both the state and national level, who have received additional training and certifications in CPR instruction. Each one of our instructors takes pride in giving each student an enjoyable and highly educational experience.
