CPR classes available
A variety of classes in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are being offered at Delaware Technical & Community College, Owens Campus, Georgetown. “CPR for Family and Friends” classes are designed for lay rescuers such as schoolchildren, family members of patients at risk, and those who want to learn rescue skills in case of a family emergency. Those who require a course completion card, such as daycare providers and lifeguards, should sign up for the “Heartsaver” courses. Cards will be issued to students who successfully complete the written exam and the skills demonstration. Skills covered include both mouth-to-mouth ventilation and rescue breathing using barrier devices. For more information about CPR course dates and times, or to register, contact Corporate and Community Programs at 302-854-6966.
