The American Heart Association (AHA) reports that about 80% of all sudden cardiac arrests occur at home. The first witness to a sudden heart attack or cardiac arrest is usually a family member, close relative, friend or neighbor. Immediate first aid and CPR usually increase a patient’s chances for survival before medical assistance is given. Therefore acquiring enough skills and confidence to deliver CPR may be necessary to help save the life of a loved one.

This classroom-based, video and instructor-led CPR course offers families, friends and community members the opportunity to learn basic CPR in a dynamic group environment.
The program applies AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which improves learning and retention.
