CPR for Musicians
CPR training will give you the skills and confidence to act quickly and save a life in the event of an emergency. With summer and festival season around the corner, it’s a great idea to prepare yourself and/or your band members for any incidents that might happen while on the road or during a performance. Learn important skills such as use of the AED, what to do if someone is not breathing and how to treat for shock. Registration space is limited
Lifesaving CPR-A and AED training teaches candidates how to perform CPR, the purpose of an AED, how to use an AED, and choking procedures for adults. Lifesaving CPR-A and AED training is recommended for candidates who are likely to only encounter adult victims.
