UEMSA is a certified training center to offer the Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) course under the guide of the Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI), a division of Jones & Bartlett Learning, LLC.

UEMSA contracts instructors from the American Heart Association (AHA) to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes.

AHA Disclaimer: "The American Heart Association strongly promotes knowledge and proficiency in all AHA courses and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the AHA. Any fees charged for such a course, except for a portion of fees needed for AHA course materials, do not represent income to the AHA." 


UEMSA has no obligation to offer an EMR or CPR course and makes no guarantee that an EMR or CPR course will be offered in the future. The details of a future course can be modified at any time for any reason. Future courses and in-session courses can be canceled at any time for any reason.

The EMR course is bound to the terms set forth in the syllabus for the specific semester. A copy of the syllabus can be provided upon request. Agreement to the terms is assumed if a student participates in the course after the first day of class.
