ACWORTH, Ga. -- CPR classes are being offered at Chattahoochee Technical College, free or of little cost to the public, as CPR Awareness month falls in June.
From June 1 - June 8, anyone interested in learning the life-saving procedure can visit the North Metro Campus of the school.
Shelby Martin, Training Center Coordinator for the American Heart Association (AHA) said, "When a bystander provides effective CPR to a cardiac arrest victim, they can double or triple that person's chance of survival."
Family and Friends CPR class, offered at no charge, lasts for two hours and teaches how to perform Hands Only CPR, how to use an AED, and how to stop someone from choking. There is no certification to be earned from this class.
For those wanting to get certified, they can register for the $20 class, Heartsaver CPR and AED on June 4, or June 6.
