CPR Classes & Recertification
We offer CPR classes for healthcare providers and laypeople through the American Heart Association. Students take the didactic portion of the class online through the AHA website and then attend an in-person session to practice with mannequins, masks, and AED trainers. Topics covered include adult, child, and infant CPR, AED use, and choking relief.
Practice sessions are held monthly and include a certification test. All students who successfully complete the course are certified through the AHA.
Separate CPR classes can be scheduled for large groups.
