Family & Friends CPR
The Family & Friends CPR course is aimed at members of the public, family members, relatives and friends of adults and children at risk for sudden death. It is ideal for laypersons with no prior medical knowledge who want to learn life-saving rescue skills for their loved ones.
The course provides a basic orientation to the skills of CPR and choking for adults, children and infants, and how to activate the emergency services. A 71-page Family & Friends CPR booklet is provided to each participant for review before, during and after the course. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.
