(CCC / AED / Heimlich)
CERT of The Villages offers free CPR (now CCC – Continuous Chest Compression) / AED (Automated External Defibrillator) / Heimlich Maneuver (choking) training to any resident of The Villages who wishes to take the class. Classroom training and hands on training using training manikins and training AED units is provided. These classes are held on the 2nd Friday of every month at the Colony Cottage Recreation Center (510 Colony Blvd, The Villages, FL) from 1:00 – 3:30 pm. During Covid-19 the class is held in two parts. There is an online presentation of the lectures and videos on the Thursday evening prior to the listed Friday. Students are then invited to Colony Cottage Rec Center on Friday in small groups for one-on-one practice with an instructor. These staggered sessions last approximately 15 minutes, which gives time for practice, evaluation and equipment cleaning before the next student..
