CPR & First Aid Certification

Are you prepared to handle most job site injuries? Do you know what to do in case of an emergency? Recent changes in the law require that contractors ensure that at least one person with a valid certificate in first aid training shall be present at each worksite to render first aid. In addition, where a single employee worksite exists, the employer is required to have a written plan that is communicated to all employees. Further, medically approved first aid kits are required on site. Join us for a course that will provide you with the skills, knowledge and peace of mind that you can handle worksite accidents and emergencies. Upon successful completion of the class, you will receive the American Heart Association First Aid Certificate.

Instructor: Steve Ball of Michigan Gutters
