ESCANABA — Bay College Training & Development (MTEC) will be offering CPR and First Aid training on Wednesday, July 11, from 9 am – 4 pm. This course is designed for those who want to learn the skills, but are not required to obtain certification in CPR for employment. Participants will learn how to respond to and manage choking or a sudden cardiac arrest until emergency help arrives; this includes instruction on how to properly use an AED, or automated external defibrillator. The first aid portion of the course will cover adult and pediatric first aid that includes how to treat bleeding, broken bones, sprains, shock, and other first aid emergencies.

According to the American Heart Association, each year there are over 350,000 cases of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest. The average survival rate is 10%, however, that rate increases to 31% when cardiac arrest is witnessed by a bystander and an AED is used. Cindy Plourde, Registered Nurse and Bay College CPR Instructor, comments, “Knowledge of basic first aid can make the difference between life and death. Knowing how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a vital life skill everyone should have. CPR, if performed immediately and correctly, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.”

The cost of the training is $85, and includes a mask and the required manual. To register or view all course offerings, visit https://mytraining.baycollege.edu. For questions or more information, call (906) 217-4200.
