This class will add knowledge in first aid beyond the Stop the Bleed class the Monday before, however Stop the Bleed is not a prerequisite.  The class will focus on CPR and AED use and trauma related injuries.  Taught by Dr. Francis "DOC" Beeman, you will gain the knowledge in the proper CPR techniques and use of an AED, which we have at the club.


Register for this class via the club website calendar.  Class is limited to 12 participants. 


The CPR portion is NOT a Red Cross certification course, however certification can be obtained by taking the online class offered by the Red Cross at a cost of $35.  For more information and how to sign up for the online Red Cross class, contact Doc Beeman at 630-909-9681 or open a helpdesk ticket on the PTPC website under the tab "contact us"
