Family & Friends CPR

CPR for Family and Friends

What would you do if your child stopped breathing?

The Family & Friends CPR program contains information on how to perform the basic skills of CPR in adults, children and infants and how to help an adult, child or infant who is choking. 
This classroom-based, video and instructor-led CPR course offers families, friends and community members the opportunity to learn basic CPR in a dynamic group environment.

The Family & Friends CPR program is for family members, friends and members of the general community who want to learn CPR but do not need a course completion card. This program is specifically designed for those who prefer to learn in a group environment with feedback from an instructor.

This program also can be a non-credentialed option for teaching CPR to middle and high school aged students in school settings. This program can be used in a variety of creative ways to teach lifesaving CPR skills to communities. 
Some examples include: 
• Workplace wellness program 
• Neighborhood or condo association meeting activity 
• Parent/teacher meeting program
