Westchester & Fairfield's CPR/AED program prepares students for emergency situations they may encounter in the future.
This one-day course will cover basic emergency skills needed for infants, children, and adults in emergency situations. It will follow the American Red Cross Blended Learning format and provide students with the best training experience. During the class, they will learn how to perform one person and two person CPR, how to use a bag-valve-mask, and how to use an automated external defibrillator. In addition, there may also be sessions focusing on standard precautions to prevent disease transmission, the signs of cardiac arrest, and the four links in cardiac chain of survival. By the end of the course, students will be CPR certified.
