Red Cross CPR class for professional rescuers and health care providers on Sunday, Dec. 9

Saint Joseph’s College will offer a course in CPR for professional rescuers and health care providers on Sunday, Dec. 9, at the Harold Alfond Center on the Standish campus. The Red Cross-certified course is designed for the professional rescuer and those who have a duty to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies, such as lifeguards, nurses, athletic trainers, EMTs and CNAs.

Participants will learn to care for adults, children and infants who are unconscious and not responsive. After completing all requirements of the course, participants will receive an American Red Cross CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer certification valid for two years.

The course runs from noon until 5:30 p.m., Dec. 9, and the cost is $90 (or $80 for recertification). If a class is needed on a different day, Saint Joseph’s can create a class at another time if there are four interested people. For more information or to register, call (207) 893-6615 or e-mail rdaigle@sjcme.edu. For more information on Red Cross classes on campus, visit www.sjcme.edu/alfond/redcross.
