The in-class portion will be led by a certified instructor from Alert First-Aid and will provide you with a chance to practice these skills and ask questions.
These are the same topics as are covered in the First Aid component of Parenting The Newborn, but in a stand-alone format. This class may be taken before or after your baby is born, but the class is for adults only. Babies in the class make it difficult to pay attention to the course material.
This is a First aid basics class intended mainly for parents or relatives and does not include a Certificate or CPR Certification.
