CPR Awareness [Non-Certified]
Recent research has shown that continuous Compression-only CPR can be effective in caring for a person with no signs on life when a rescuer is unable, untrained or unwilling to perform full CPR. Citizens CPR was developed in response to this research. The product is not intended to substitute for a formal training course. It is geared toward providing consumers with an educational overview which can help consumers recognize an emergency and could lead to their enrollment in a first aid, CPR, AED course. Class sessions: 9:15am, 10:10am, and 11:05am
