Non-member cost: $250 for the first 1-8 participants and $20 per person after the first eight, up to 30 per class.

AEDs. More and more employers are becoming aware of the importance of installing an automated external defibrillator (AED) in the workplace, but many are unsure about how to proceed. We can help employers assess their situation and provide subsequent training in the use of AEDs and in first aid/CPR.
