EAST PROVIDENCE – A series of CPR training classes by Brown Medicine is set for February and March.
The classes are ideal for people who routinely work with large groups of people.
“We are pleased to offer this training to the community at large and encourage anyone who is not in the medical or emergency response field to take it, particularly those who work in restaurants, fitness centers or in a security capacity, who work with the elderly population or who coach sports or teach school-age children,” said Dr. Louis B. Rice, president of Brown Medicine.
In addition to CPR, participants will learn how to use a defibrillator on someone who has gone into cardiac arrest and how to help adults, children and infants when they are choking. Those who complete the course will receive a certificate of completion from Brown Medicine.
Courses are designed around a curriculum developed by the American Heart Association.
They are open to anyone over age 18.
Class size is limited. Classes are scheduled for Feb. 8 and 22 and March 7, 21 and 28. Classes are offered each day from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m.
