Instructors with Safety Matters, an authorized American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI) Training Center, will offer the ASHI CPR and AED certification program. Successful participants will receive a two-year certification card.

The event will be held in room 1701 of the Theater and Dance building on the UCSB campus at 552 University Road with a morning session from 8:30 a.m. – noon and an afternoon session from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m. Each session can accommodate 50 participants.
