EHS Establishes New CPR Training Center

Environmental Health Safety has established a new American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) CPR/AED/First Aid Training Center. In the past EHS provided CPR training services through a third party contractor.

EHS will now house a training program within the University.

New Trainers!

EHS would like to congratulate our first three new CPR/AED/BFA instructors: Brandon Best, James Cantu and Alex Fusaro! Additional trainers are forthcoming. Our group of trainers will ensure that we can offer regular classes on a predictable schedule.

When will training classes be scheduled?

We anticipate serving some specific needs for department and units that have specific requirements initially. We will then schedule open classes as we have done in the past. New training opportunities will appear in the Campus Events Calendar and will be publicized through TN Today or other means. Look for new dates in November and December soon!

How much will classes cost?

Through the creation of the new training center, EHS was able to reduce costs. The new fees for the courses are as follows.

  • First Aid only – $15.00
  • CPR/AED only – $30.00
  • CPR/AED & First Aid  – $40.00
