The American Red Cross Community CPR / AED course provides participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to sustain life and minimize the consequences of injury or sudden illness until advanced medical help arrives.
This life-saving course is being offered from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7, at the Sanibel Recreation Center, 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will hold an adult, infant, child CPR/AED certification valid for two years.
The cost of the course is $70 for members and $87.50 for non-members and it includes all materials. Skills acquired in this course cannot be applied to a lifeguarding certification as this course certifies participants in rescue skills for lay responders, not professional rescuers.
