It’s great because it’s flexible, and you can do it on your schedule, and you don’t have to actually leave your house or drive somewhere. And it’s nice, too, because you can go back and re-look at content, and I really appreciated the takeaways and clips.

Probably better if you have taken an adult CPR class. I strongly encourage that since it gives you confidence in the importance of taking these actions and not waiting.
