With the recent completion of the Education Center remodel, the Education Department is excited to offer Emergency Cardiovascular Care courses to the community.
SMC was named an American Heart Association (AHA) training site in May and began offering Basic Life Support (BLS), Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and other courses to employees.
“I’m so thrilled to announce that we can now offer these classes to the public,” said Shay DiBartolomeo, Director of Education. “We’re very proud to be an AHA training site and hope to be able to educate many people in the community.”
Courses available include:
- Basic Life Support: Cost is $75 per person for a 3.5-hour class.
- Advanced Cardio Life Support: $300 per person.
The first BLS class open to the community begins Sept. 16, 2021.
Courses are intended for healthcare providers who require a completion card, people with little or no medical training who require the course completion card for job, regulatory (OSHA), or other requirements, or members of the community who want to learn potentially life-saving skills, according to DiBartolomeo.
