An infant and child CPR class will be held Sunday, April 21, 1-3 p.m. at Hill Center. These classes are held monthly throughout the year, so if you can’t make April 21, you can register for May, June, July, etc.
Here’s more info from the Hill Center calendar:
It takes two hours of your time to learn the skills that could save your child’s life.
During this class you will be taught by a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Registered Nurse. You will learn Infant and Child CPR, AED and what to do if your child or infant is choking. The class applies to infants up to age 12. These are skills everyone caring for an infant or child should have to ensure their safety. This is the perfect class for parents, nannies, babysitters, or family members who might be caring for your child.
