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 two years, NYS requires a yearly update.

The course will be offered on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 from 4:00–5:50 p.m. in H 3 & 4 gym.

A CPR challenge course registration form must be completed by Friday, May 28, 2021. You must pre-register. We will not accept registration forms after this date due to new policies from the Red Cross.

The cost for CPR/AED is $70.

You will also need your own pocket mask. The test material is based upon the book issued 2017.  You can view the book and also purchase a mask online at the Red Cross Store. Many students are failing the written exam. Study! You need to score an 80 or better on the written exam.

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