KINBURN – Make sure you can be a lifesaver when the time calls.

Choose from two options. From 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. there will be a CPR and AED program for $35. This course covers airway/breathing/circulation, CPR/AED (adults & children), choking, heart attack, stroke, communicable diseases, the law, and emergency scenarios. Certification is valid for one year. 

Emergency First Aid from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. plus 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. – $80.

The option to recertify Standard First Aid is also available. Both courses take place at Stonecrest.

“Choose to attend only the morning or the whole day,” the SESC said. “For those staying for the day, a lunch break will take place after the CPR and AED course, so please bring your own lunch. We encourage a nut-free lunch in case of any potential food allergies.”
