WORKSHOP – Bali-Ready CPR – Erika & Dillon
October 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Being trained in CPR may help you save a life, but in many basic CPR courses are taught assuming that an ambulance and trained medics are just minutes away. In Bali, this is rarely the case. We offer this comprehensive CPR course to help you build a strong first response skill set that is a match for the situations you might encounter here. Come learn AHA Healthcare Provider level CPR with a focus on the medical realities of Bali.
