Free Heartsaver® CPR/AED Course Offered in Sapulpa

Beckie Doyle, Health Educator for the Oklahoma State Department of Health, encourages area residents and families to attend a free Heartsaver® CPR/AED Course in November at the Library Annex in Sapulpa.

“This course is not for healthcare providers; rather, it is for anyone with limited or no medical training who needs a course completion card in CPR and AED operation to meet job, regulatory or other requirements,” explained Doyle. “This course is good for those who have never taken a CPR course and for those that are renewing their card.”

Upon completion of this course, students receive a Heartsaver® CPR/AED Course Completion Card that is valid for two years. During the course, Doyle will conduct video-based lessons and work with students to complete their CPR and AED skills practice and testing.

Course completion cards will arrive via U.S. postal mail approximately 3-4 weeks after the completion of the course. Proof of attendance can be provided at the end of class for those that need immediate proof.

“This course is typically never offered at no cost. We are very fortunate, through a grant, to be able to offer it at no charge,” added Melissa M. Struttmann, Executive Director of Creek County Literacy Program.

This free Heartsaver® CPR/AED Course will be held twice on Thursday, November 6 from 9am-11:30am and 4pm-6:30pm in the Library Annex, 15 North Poplar Street in Sapulpa. Refreshments and snacks will be served. This free Course is open to the public. Registration is limited to 12 participants for each class. Attendees must be at least 16 years old and must register in advance. To register, please call 918-224-9647.
