CPR Training Available at NMJC for $25

9/9/2016 5:07:31 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. The Training and Outreach department at New Mexico Junior College is offering CPR training to the public for only $25. These classes are led by experts and include AED training (automated external defibrillator).

People can choose one of these classes to attend: Saturday, October 8 from 8:00am – 12noon; Thursday, October 27 from 5:30pm – 9:30pm; Saturday, November 5 from 8:00am – 12noon; and Thursday, November 17 from 5:30pm – 9:30pm.  All classes will be held at NMJC Training and Outreach, 4000 W.

In addition, there is a special Child Infant First Aid/CPR class on Saturday, September 10 from

8:00am - 12noon.  The cost is also $25.

According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 people in the United States suffer from cardiac arrest out of the hospital, with a high percentage dying before reaching a hospital. Statistics prove that if CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) had been administered by trained people, the survival rate would increase.

“We know how important CPR training is, especially in Lea County, where workers may be out in the fields or desert,” says Rachel Gallagher, Career Support Technician for NMJC’s Training and Outreach division. “We wanted to make the training very affordable not only for employees, but also family members who want to be sure they can help when a tragedy occurs at home.”

People are encouraged to register by calling Gallagher at 575-492-4716 or rgallagher@nmjc.edu. Or they can register online at nmjc.edu and click on Training and Outreach.
