Become a CUSERT Responder!

We are now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year!

Are you looking for a positive way to spend your free time that involves helping others and improving your first aid skills, as well as getting to know other Carleton students? If so, CUSERT may be for you!

Every year, we look for dedicated and motivated students to join our team of volunteer medical first responders. CUSERT provides 24/7 emergency medical response services to the Carleton University campus throughout the school year.

Requirements to join CUSERT:

  • Student at Carleton University (including those starting at Carleton in September 2020)
  • Valid Standard First Aid Certification*
  • Valid CPR Level C Certification*
  • Clean Criminal Record
  • Desire to help others and work in a team
  • Interest in practicing first aid in a rewarding and enjoyable environment

*If you are not certified yet but are planning on taking a course before September 20, 2020, you may still submit an application. We will also be offering courses in September that will help you meet this requirement. If you do not upload it with your application, you must submit your Standard First Aid / CPR Level C certification as soon as you receive it.

How to Apply:

The deadline for applications is September 20, 2020. Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as applications may be processed on a rolling basis. If all spots for our Initial Testing Weekend are filled before September 20, 2020, the application form may close before this date. You should therefore submit your application as early as possible.
