The basics of first Aid, CPR and AED to adults, children and infants will be covered in a four-hour evening class, with an eCard made available at the successful completion of the course.  A fee of $40 (exact cash or check) is required in advance to cover the cost of books and materials, and comfortable clothing is suggested for all participants.
