UREC New Student Employee Orientations

This course is for UREC student/hourly employees only.  This class should be taken within 30 days after starting employment with UREC.  This orientation class will offer new student employees basic employment training regarding UREC policies and procedures. 

UREC student employees are responsible for registering themselves online at https://urecmembers.uark.edu/. Log on using your UARK user name and password. Select the appropriate semester and click on the “UREC Employees” classes. 

You may also register at the UREC Main Office in HPER 225, or by calling 479-575-4646. Participants who need to cancel their registration are asked to do so as soon as they are aware of a conflict, so that the space is available for others to register. UREC student-employees who fail to show up to a class for which they are registered will be subject to the UREC student employee discipline policy guidelines

UREC Student Employee CPR Classes

University Recreation provides employees a free class for First Aid, CPR, and AED certifications.  If you already have a certification, you will need to give a copy of your certificate to your supervisor.  If you do not have a certification, or are about to expire, UREC provides classes specifically for employees throughout the semester.

Red Cross CPR certifications are valid for 2 years.  If your certification has not yet expired, or if it has expired very recently (within a few months) and you are able to show proof of your certification date, you are eligible to sign up for the challenge course.  If you have never been Red Cross certified before, or have been expired for more than a few months, you will need to register for the full course.  The full course runs approximately 3 hours. 

UREC student employees are responsible for registering themselves online at https://urecmembers.uark.edu/.  

You can also stop by the UREC Main Office in HPER 225 or register over the phone by calling 479-575-4646.  Please specify that you are a UREC employee when you register.


If you have questions regarding your CPR certifications, contact the UREC Main Office at 479-575-4646.
