where can I take a CPR training class within Kaiser Permanente facility. I’m a Unit Assistant for dept 335 Telemetry x 17565
Cynthia, you may contact your local Health Education Department for information on where to take CPR near you. Thank you!
The nurse takes it from NCTI.EDU. Check to see if MAs are eligible for training; if so, it’s free to Kaiser employees. If not try Fast Response or Red Cross.
