Berkeley Medical Reserve Corps offers high quality, low cost CPR classes to all members of the general community with an emphasis on the UC Berkeley campus. Because of the importance of immediate care in treating heart attacks and in relieving choking, we believe that large scale instruction of the campus community is vital to improving response to these medical emergencies. All instructors are volunteer, AHA-certified CPR instructors.
