Did you know:
• Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, any time. Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors?
• Less than one-third of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR?
• Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival?
• Studies have shown that children as young as 9 years old can learn and retain CPR skills?

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to emergencies in a responsible and efficient manner, allowing you to potentially save the life of a loved one.
Instruction will be provided on adult and pediatric first aid, CPR, and AED use. Upon completion, participants will have the opportunity to receive a 2-year certification from the American Heart Association.
