Our mission is to begin and continue the education of Basic Life Support and First Aid within the UNM community as well as the general public of Albuquerque and surrounding areas. Our goal is for every UNM building to have at least one AED unit and everyone within to be trained to save a life. For more information regarding AED purchasing or maintenance, please contact us at

UNM HEaRT offers American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) two-year certification for faculty, staff, family, student, and community. We would like to have everyone on campus trained in case of an emergency. We accept tuition remission forms, cash, check, purchase requisitions, and credit cards.

If your department or group has six or more people who would like to be trained, please contact us at; we will organize a separate class to work with your schedule.

For more information please contact us at (505) 272-8364 or
