Course description

This American Heart Association safety course is designed for parents, family, friends, and care-givers of infants and children. Attendees will learn how to respond to and deliver CPR and relieve choking to manage emergency illness and injury until professional help arrives.

Topics also include injury prevention, environmental emergencies and car seat education. Attendees will receive an American Heart Association booklet for this course. This is a non-certification course, so participants will not need to take an examination upon completion of the course. The $20 tuition price is for two people. This class is offered in partnership with the Flagstaff Exchange Club.
