CPR for the Professional Rescuer Course

If you are a lifeguard and want to keep your certification current, you must update your CPR for the Professional Rescuer/AED/First Aid card every year. Even though it says it is good for 2 years. NYS requires a yearly update.

The course will be offered on Wednesday, June 6 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. in H3 & H4 Gym.

You will need to have a registration form completed by Wednesday, May 30. You can pick up a registration form in the athletic office or click here. You MUST pre-register, registration forms will not be accepted after the date due to new policies from the Red Cross.

The cost for the CPR/AED course is $70.

***You will also need your own pocket mask. The test material is based upon the book issued in 2017.  You can view the book and also purchase a mask online at Red Cross Store.  Many students are failing the written exam, STUDY you need to pass the written with an 80 or better.

If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Kippen or email at mkippen@ncolonie.org.
