Announcing an opportunity to obtain CPR/AED and First Aid Certification for BCARES members.

The cost for this training will be $6 for CPR and $1.50 for First aid. This certification is required for the Field Support (S) and Field Qualified (Q) levels of BCARES membership and is good for 2 years.

There is a maximum class size of 9 for this training, and a minimum of 5, so sign up, with a booking, as soon as possible if you are interested. This is the best price I have ever seen, and it will be taught by Terry Young who teaches these courses for ARES groups across Colorado.

With an estimate of 3-4 hours for each session, I would suggest that we bring a sack lunch for a brief lunch break between sessions.

The date is set for Saturday June 11 and will be held in the Pawnee room in the Boulder EOC from 9am to 4pm.

To book a space for this training, click on the date (June 11) in the calendar.
