Two additional CPR for Kids classes

Due to the success of its CPR for Kids program, Wilton-based Cardiac Companion says it has added an additional two classes to its schedule for the summer.

The courses are being offered on Aug. 1 and Aug. 8 in town, and are for children ages 11 to 13.

The cost for this class is $100 per student. This price includes the course completion card.

Course topics and requirements include:

  • Adult CPR/AED/Choking.
  • Child CPR/AED/Choking.
  • Infant CPR/Choking.
  • Practical Test.

“Having the opportunity to teach CPR and AED use to kids as young as 11 is a true privilege,” Cardiac Companion owner Nancy Capelle says.

“Watching them master skills with such enthusiasm and confidence is so inspiring. Kids are ready, willing and able to save a life and by giving them the opportunity to do, we create a new generation of heroes.”

Upon completion of the three-hour course, students receive an American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR AED course completion card that is valid for two years.
