First in the State

Saint Benedict Academy faculty and staff were the first cohort in the state to receive digital certification from the American Red Cross in Adult, Child, and Infant CPR and AED. The faculty took a four-hour course at the school on Wednesday, October 9 after a full-day of teaching. Their instructor, Alejandro Urrutia, conducted an informative class on responding to emergencies and how to adminster CPR and utilize the AED in a variety of scenarios. At the end of the course, teachers received notification that they had successfully completed the requirements for certification and will have access to their documentation on-line as the Red Cross phases out the traditional wallet cards in favor of digital certificates.
