You’ll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to give immediate care to an injured or ill person and decide whether advanced medical care is needed. Red Cross certification will be offered. Participants must be able to demonstrate skills competently and pass a written evaluation in order to be certified. Please let the instructor know if any special accommodations are required for the written exam. One-night class option available for participants needing only CPR or only First Aid.
