SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah. —  Basin Rec is holding a CPR/AED/first aid course open to teenagers 12 – 17, in the community. 

The cost is $50 and it takes place both online and at The Fieldhouse in the Field Party Room.

Learn important skills and become CPR/AED and basic First Aid certified through the Red Cross. This blended-learning course will help you recognize and care for a variety of first aid, breathing, and cardiac emergency situations. The majority of the class content will be done online with a practical in person session at the Fieldhouse. Participants will be emailed the course link after registering for the class. 

Online Portion: Complete before November 18 class
In-Person class: Thursday, November 18
Time: 5 pm-7 pm

Register here.
 
Basin Rec continually holds these classes for adults, however, Angie Greenburg, Recreation Coordinator for Basin Rec. told me that the registration of those classes, more often than not, sells out quickly.

The United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends employees be certified annually to perform CPR, and first aid training should take place at least once every three years.

Greenburg told me that teenagers have a considerably higher babysitting hiring rate if they are certified in CPR/first aid and that all of the employees at Basin Rec are required to have their certification.
