Classes are offered in ACLS, PALS, Healthcare Provider, Heartsaver AED and First Aid, Pediatric First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens, Family & Friends, CPR Anytime and Safe Sitter courses. There are also a number of online training programs available. 

Classes are offered to individual groups or companies, scout groups, coaches, families, etc. We will work with you to decide which course is most appropriate for your needs.

Family & Friends Non-Certifying CPR Training

The Family & Friends CPR Course teaches the lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, child CPR with breaths, adult and child AED use, infant CPR and relief of choking in an adult, child or infant. Skills are taught in a dynamic group environment by using the AHA’s research-proven practice-while-watching technique, which provides students with the most hands-on CPR practice time possible.

Family & Friends CPR is for people who want to learn CPR but do not need a course completion card in CPR for their job. This course is ideal for schools and students, new parents, grandparents, babysitters and others interested in learning how to save a life.

The course is typically offered on the third Saturday of every month from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM. Registration is required as space is limited.

Free CPR Anytime Training

Griffin Hospital Valley Parish Nurses are encouraging individuals to be a hero and learn how to save a life by offering free CPR Anytime training.  Classes are offered throughout the year.  CPR Anytime is a non-certifying CPR program for anyone who wants to learn basic CPR skills, choking relief and AED awareness. 

Through participation in this program, participants receive their own CPR Anytime kit so that they can share the skills with close family and friends. The kit includes a manikin, instructional DVD and pamphlet.

The roughly half hour program is offered at convenient times to allow for maximum participation. The program is held at Griffin Hospital.  Reservations are required. 

In addition to individual registration and participation, classes are offered to organized groups - companies, scout groups, coaches, families, etc. We will work with you to decide which course is most appropriate for your group's needs.
