CPR & First Aid Classes
You know how to call 911, but do you know CPR? CPR courses offered through the Zionsville Fire Department will teach you skills that could save the life of a family member, friend or member of your community. Learn CPR and make a difference.
First Saturday Course
The CPR/AED/Choking Rescue course is a three hour class that typically takes place on the first Saturday of the month. This is perfect for the lay person and includes CPR, AED and choking for adults, children and infants. This provides a two-year certification for non-healthcare providers. The course fee is $45 and can be paid the date of the course with a check or exact amount in cash. The class size allows for up to six students. Click here to sign up.
Online Courses, Hands-On Practice and Evaluation
This option provides a variety of different online courses offered through the American Heart Association. If you are on a time crunch or need a skill that is not provided in the Saturday course, this is the option for you. The skills sessions can be scheduled on Thursdays only during normal business hours. Click here to visit the AHA website sign up form.
