Community CPR & AED Training

     Periodically during the semester, Five Quad offers CPR and First Aid classes to faculty and students on campus at UAlbany. When a class is scheduled, it will be posted here on our website.  Contact our Community CPR Training Officer at if you have any questions.


We offer three different classes:


American Heart Association Heartsaver® First Aid

  • classroom, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills to respond to and manage an emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. Students learn skills such as how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock and other first aid emergencies.


    Heartsaver® CPR AED

  • classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches adult CPR and AED use, as well as how to relieve choking on an adult.  This course teaches skills with AHA’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching (PWW) technique, which allows instructors to observe the students, provide feedback and guide the students’ learning of skills.


    BLS for Healthcare Providers

  • to provide a wide variety of healthcare professionals the ability to recognize several life-threatening emergencies, provide CPR, use an AED, and relieve choking in a safe, timely and effective manner.
