Open to volunteers and employees from any organization, this course is specifically designed for individuals leading trail or restoration crews.
One day can save a life. In this Saturday workshop, you will receive a universally applicable certification in Adult CPR, AED, and First Aid to deliver life-saving care in the outdoors. Signs and symptoms of common injuries and illnesses will be demonstrated in sample scenarios and accompanied by the recommended steps to aid the patient while emergency medical services are en route. With a small class size of less than 15 people, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and practice your training in a hands-on setting.
Cost: $60 to be paid upon arrival in class by cash, credit card, or checks made payable to Tim Gaines.
