Friends and Family CPR Course

This training will take place on Monday, March 6th from 10:30 am to 11:30 am and registration is required. You can register for this event here.

Almost 80% of sudden cardiac arrests happen in the home. 92% of victims don’t survive, often because people around them don’t act and begin CPR. You can help change this statistic by learning the simple skills of CPR. These skills are taught by American Heart Association faculty instructors, using the AHA’s research-proven, practice-while-watching technique. This allows participants to have the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

This course covers the lifesaving skills of:

  • Adult Hands-Only™ CPR
  • Child CPR with breaths
  • Adult and child AED (automated external defibrillator) use
  • Infant CPR
  • Relief of choking in an adult, child, or infant.

Registration is required. This event will take place in person at the Riverton Library. There is no age requirement, but it is recommended participants are at least 9 years old. (CPR is based more on body strength than age.)

Please note, this training is not appropriate for anyone looking for a certification. This course is intended for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a course completion card in CPR for their job. It is ideal for schools and students, parents, grandparents, babysitters, and others interested in learning how to save a life.
