Now that you have your beautiful newborn, you and your family may want to learn infant CPR for safety reasons. This course is recommended for anyone who will be caring for infants or children and focuses on how to prevent and handle the common childhood emergency of choking, and when to call 911 for assistance. There is new science in the 2015 The American Heart Association’s American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care and the Family & Friends CPR Course has been updated to reflect that . This classroom course teaches adult Hands-Only™ CPR, adult AED use, child CPR and AED use, and infant CPR. It also teaches you and your partner or family how to relieve choking in an adult, child or infant. The infant CPR class skills are taught using the AHA’s research-proven Practice-While-Watching technique, which allows participants to practice skills while watching consistent, accurate modeling of skills performance on the course video. Adult, child and infant skills are presented in three separate modules for added flexibility.

This course is ideal for expecting and new parents, grandparents, caregivers, older siblings (at least 12 years of age), and others interested in learning how to save a life.
