First Aid and CPR Classes

In 2008 Back to School of Rhode Island received a grant from American Red Cross of Rhode Island to offer free CPR and First Aid classes in English and Spanish to low-income parents/guardians and youth.  Through this grant over 450 people were trained from April, 2008 to December 2010. After completing the training, participants have the confidence to respond in an emergency situation with skills that can save a life. Participants who met the course objectives received completion certificates, which are nationally recognized.


Currently CPR classes are offered the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The cost of these classes is $55.00 per person. To register, please call 401-301-5028.  The dollars you invest in training go back into your community to support the Back to School Celebration events.
