Community Classes - CPR & First Aid

Northern Inyo Healthcare District is pleased to offer certified American Heart Association (AHA) Hands-On Skill Sessions for CPR and First Aid. These courses are offered on a bi-monthly basis depending on community response and instructor availability.

What is a Skill Session?

Skill Sessions are part of a blended learning format, meaning there is a self-directed online course and a separate hands-on course. Blended learning provides community members with the freedom to complete sections of their training in the convenience of their own home.

Skills Sessions are not included with the purchase of the self-directed online course key.
