CPR & Life Support Classes

Every parent and/or caregiver should know how and when to administer CPR. When performed correctly, CPR can save a person's life by restoring breathing and circulation until advanced life support can be given by health care providers.

Holy Cross Health provides a variety of CPR and AED classes for caregivers in our community, as well as advanced life support training for medical personnel. For more information and to register for classes, please click on the links below.
