CPR, First Aid and AED

Important Notice

Recreation and Wellness will not be offering any certification courses for the Spring 2024 semester. Please read below for “alternative certifications” offered outside of TCNJ.

Course Offerings

We offer Adult only classes or Adult and Pediatric classes utilizing the American Red Cross certification. The class is a blended learning format, which means all students will be required to complete an online portion before the scheduled class time. The online portion will take roughly 2.5 hours and the in-class portion will be roughly 1.5 hours. We can do an entire in-class certification by request only, but it must be for a group of at least 6 people and the class will take 4-6 hours.

Course Costs

Classes cost $40 per person. Students can pay with TCNJ Get It Points or by check made out to “TCNJ”.

For instructions on how to add points to your Student ID, please visit How to Add Get-It Points.
