WKCTC Offering CPR, First Aid, and AED Training

Learning the techniques to save someones life is the basis for CPR, first aid and Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED) training at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Every fourth Wednesday of the month, beginning March 26 to the end of the year, WKCTC will be offering training in standard first aid and adult CPR/AED for either renewal of existing cards or new cards issued by the American Red Cross.

The course is designed to provide individuals with information to recognize illness and injury types and is a means of treating those same illnesses or injuries, said Kevin ONeill, WKCTC continuing education coordinator. We want to provide the community with another outlet to be trained or recertified in techniques that could save a life.

WKCTCs External Education Instructor, Larry Gearheart, will teach the monthly course from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. in the Emerging Technology Center, Room 141. The cost each CPR/AED and first aid course is $90.
