CPR/AED & First Aid Training Opportunities

Why should I know CPR/AED?

Many businesses and schools provide CPR/AED training so employees are prepared to administer appropriate action in the event of a workplace emergency. According to a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, individuals working long hours are 67% more likely to suffer from a heart attack during their lifetime. You just might save a life if you choose to complete CPR/AED training!

What will I learn in the training?

This course will provide individuals with the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide effective CPR life support in the event of an emergency and includes an AED training component. Participants who complete this course will be certified by the American Heart Association (AHA).
