CPR class

    My gym is offering a CPR class in a few weeks. It costs $40. I've never learned it.
    Since my mom had a heart attack a few years ago and my dad has had a stroke, I was thinking it might be a good thing to know.
    How hard is it to learn?

    I can't imagine it's too technical if it's just the one class.

    It's very easy to learn.

    Extremely easy, and definitely a good idea. Good thought by you.

    Went through a CPR class with the youth group at my church in late 2007. It was a five- to six-hour course, but it was well worth it.

    CPR is a great thing to know. I have CPR/AED certification and have had to use it also.

    I have to take CPR every year for my coaching certification. Only $15. CPR cards are good for two years, First Aid every three.

    I keep up with my CPR/First Aid, because I've had to use it. Still, the worst feeling I've ever had was when a little boy was choking. For a millisecond I felt panicked, but then the training took over and I knew what to do. Of course after he was okay again, the shakes set in and I had way too much adrenaline pumping through my veins.
