Event Description
Note that you do not need to register in Career Pathway for this workshop. Registration occurs via email application.

A Healthier U is offering a limited number of scholarships for a CPR/First Aid/AED course for faculty and professional staff, taught by instructors from the American Red Cross. The scholarship will cover the entire cost of this course. The course will be presented in a “blended learning” format, meaning that there will be both an online and an in-person component followed by an exam.


·         Online Component: The first portion of the class will be offered online and will take an average of 5 hours to complete at home. The online component will be available to participants for two weeks before their in-person skills portion and exam.

·         In-Person Skills Session: The second portion of the class will be a 2.5-hour, in-person skills session offered on the University City Campus. During the skills portion, participants must show a certificate of completion for the online portion of the course. At the skills session, participants will receive hands-on instruction about how to perform CPR.


At the end of the skills session, you must be able to demonstrate resuscitation techniques in order to complete the class and become CPR/AED certified by the Red Cross.


You must be able to commit to the 2.5-hour, in-person session at the University City Campus (Behrakis Grand Hall, 33rd and Chestnut Streets) on Wednesday, March 15, from noon-2:30 p.m. in order to apply for this opportunity.


To apply for a scholarship for this course, send an email to mfauble@drexel.edu by Feb. 10, and answer the following questions:


1.       Why are you interested in CPR/First Aid/AED?

2.       Please explain your interest in this topic as it relates to your work with Drexel University.

3.       What else would you like us to know about you that might be relevant to CPR/First Aid/AED?

4.       Please explain your commitment to learning CPR/First Aid/AED and any scheduling concerns that might prohibit you from completing this online or on-site coursework.

5.       Are you able to attend the in-person session on Wednesday, March 15, from noon-2:30 p.m. in Behrakis Hall (33rd and Chestnut Streets)?


Participants will be selected based on course availability and a sincere interest in learning CPR/First Aid/AED. All applications must be received by Feb. 10, 2017, and will be considered in the order in which they are received. Space is very limited. You are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
