POWELL — Powell Valley Community Education is offering American Red Cross certification classes. The first class, Adult/Child/Infant CPR, is from 6 to 10 p.m. Nov. 17 in the Northwest College Johnson Fitness Center, Room 4. Standard First Aid Certification is also 6 to 10 p.m. on Dec. 1 at the same location. Keith McCallister is the certified instructor.
These certification classes are to be taken separately. CPR certification is valid for one year and first aid certification is valid for three years. Fees are $25 each and include instruction and the corresponding certification card which will come from the American Red Cross office.
The CPR course meets guidelines requiring automated external defibrillator and workplace training. The first aid training meets the ECC May 2006 guidelines and teaches the latest techniques.
