Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene.

It is an entry level class for anyone with a personal desire to learn basic CPR in an Instructor-led environment. You'll learn the basic skills of CPR, and leave with the understanding that performing Hands-Only CPR Can Save Lives and, if started immediately, can double or even triple a person's chances of survival.  You’ll leave the class with the confidence to jump into action if needed.
