Get Trained: CPR and First Aid Certification

February 19, 2020

The American Heart Association estimates that as many 200,000 lives could be saved each year if CPR were performed early enough. If it’s been 2 years or more since your last certification – or you just want to refresh your skills – please join us on Monday, February 24, for New Life Adult/Child CPR with AED and First Aid certification training for members. The session will take place from 12 pm–4:30 pm at the Fitness Center Studio.

Learning the techniques through CPR/First Aid/AED certification prepares you to assess the scene for safety and respond when faced with a heart attack, cardiac arrest, airway obstruction or another emergency – potentially buying valuable time before an ambulance or qualified emergency medical staff can arrive. The New Life course will cover three critical components for members who attend:

Basic CPR: Including CPR basics for adults, children, and infants, as well as airway obstruction identification and remedy for choking victims.

Standard First Aid: How to assess scenes and victims in a variety of the most common types of medical emergencies and injuries.

Automated External Defibrillators: Understanding AED safety, when they should be used, and how they should be used in conjunction with CPR.

Participation in the certification class is $45 per person. Please email aevans@talkingrockclub.com to sign up!
