This class teaches basic CPR and first aid for infants and children up to age seven and discusses how to create a safe home environment. This class is ideal for school children, new parents, grandparents, babysitters and other community members who are interested in learning how to save a life but who do not require a course completion certificate for their job.
Course material is provided by the American Heart Association.
The course uses a practice-while-watching video format and manikins for hands-on practice. There is no testing and the student learns through instructor feedback during practice sessions.

You will be practicing skills that require working on the floor and having hands-on contact with the mannequins and fellow students. If you have any physical conditions that might prevent these activities, please notify the Cardiac Training Center by calling 619-740-4226.
Effective June 8, 2020, face coverings are required to be worn at all of Sharp’s non-medical facilities when physical distancing of 6 feet or more is not possible and in common areas such as stairwells, elevators, break rooms, lobbies and hallways. You must bring a face covering with you to class. Anyone who does not have a face covering will be asked to reschedule.
Due to recommended precautions against coronavirus (COVID-19), we will not have any students demonstrate breathing directly into a mask, mouthpiece or manikin. For purposes of our classes, you will practice and test using a bag-valve-mask for respirations. Before we start class, we ask that you wash your hands and use hand sanitizer as needed during the class. If you are currently ill, especially if you have respiratory symptoms, please notify the instructor and reschedule for another date once you are well.
Please bring a face covering and your Family & Friends Infant and Child CPR booklet to class.
