CPR courses for healthcare providers

Kishwaukee College is offering American Heart Association CPR courses that include certification/re-certification specifically for Healthcare Providers.  Each class costs $55 and will be held at Kishwaukee College. The required textbooks are available at the Kishwaukee College Bookstore and are not included in the cost of the class. Participants should wear comfortable clothing to class. To receive certification, no part of the class can be missed.

CPR for the Healthcare Provider is designed for certification, as well as recertification, and covers the role of healthcare providers who respond to cardiovascular and respiratory emergencies. Proper CPR skills, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), relieving foreign body airway obstructions, and using a bag mask will be presented.  This class will be offered at a wide variety of days and times to better accommodate Healthcare Providers schedules.
