The course will run Tuesdays and Wednesdays, October 17-January 29, from 6 to 10 pm each session. There will additionally be a few Saturday classes, to run from 8 am to 2 pm.


The course fee is $800, which includes the textbook and online resources. In addition, it also provides a AHA CPR certification.
