Depending on the number of participants, classes generally last about 3 hours.

How can I know that we will be receiving highly effective instruction?

We have many references from some of the biggest organizations in northern Illinois.

Why does our organization need emergency response training?

Do we need an AED at our office?

Based on the efficacy achieved through CPR and defibrillator use, AEDs are recommended for every organization.
