Family Health + Fitness

Infant/Child/Adult CPR

M $75, NM $75

This non-certification class will teach infant and child accident prevention. If you are a parent, grandparent, or caregiver/nanny, baby proofing tips are essential. We always teach how to properly call the 911 system and we will advise you of what phone numbers to have in emergencies as well as what to have in your first aid kit. Then we teach Infant/Child/Adult CPR and choking. This is a very interactive virtual experience, and it recommended to have a stuffed animal or doll to assist with working on the skills as the instructor teaches.
