Community Training Center Hours of Operation
NOTICE TO INSTRUCTORS:
When you agree to teach CPR to participants, please make sure they understand that there is a possible 20 day turnaround before they receive cards. If they need cards immediately, please do NOT send them to the Training Center to pick up their cards ahead of others who are awaiting the allotted time. Participants need to take courses in a time frame that allows for processing rosters and cards, and to receive their cards from their instructors. Many organizations will only accept the original card and NOT a course completion letter.
Volunteers Needed for the Heart and Stroke Walk. The Heart and Stroke Walk will be held at Tanglewood Park on Saturday, October 18, 2014. The CTC will be there to offer HANDS ONLY CPR. Please come out and save a life! In 2013, 90 people were trained to do Family & Friends CPR at the Heart and Stroke Walk.
The CTC will be open from 08:00AM-5:00PM. If you need to pick up rental equipment or to come in for other issues outside those hours, please call and we can make arrangements for your request in advance. Due to the nature of our business, we may be working offsite at another satellite. If possible, please schedule an appointment if you need to come in for issues other than dropping off rosters or picking up cards.
