Training will cover CPR/AED and relief of choking for adults, children and infants. This is ideal for first responders. In addition, the workshop will cover first aid for lay rescuers, focusing on how to manage illness and injuries in the first few minutes of an emergency until professional help arrives.

The Heartsaver course will be held 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturdays, Feb. 25, March 25 and April 22 at the Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City Campus, 1535 Bacharach Blvd. The course also will be held 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday, April 15, at the Cape May County Campus, 341 Court House – South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House.

This training is offered through the college’s Workforce Development program which provides a broad range of workshops, seminars and career training programs to the residents and businesses of Atlantic and Cape May counties.
