Wooohooo! I made it!...and thanks to my new skills...so did my plastic and foam manequinn! But seriously, having basic knowledge of CPR maneuvers is such a valuable tool. I encourage everyone to take the class. My certification card will arrive in the mail within the next week or so..and I feel a great sense of accomplishment. I also learned the Heimlich maneuver which is great. The instructor was clear and competent...and he was funny as well. We all had a good time learning.
