Group discussion, skill stations, lecture and written evaluations will assist you to demonstrate your knowledge of Basic Life Support, ECG rhythm interpretation, airway support, electrical interventions, cardiac medications, and the AHA approved algorithms for patient management.

Registration is from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.
