CPR / Basic Life Support course, Friday 24 November, tutor TBC

This is an afternoon's CPR and Basic Life Support Update which will include the use of a automated external defibrillator, and will fulfill our obligation to attend training in this every 2 years.  This course follows on from the morning workshop with Joanne Elphinston on Effortless Self-Carriage.  Both courses are "stand-alone" courses, so you can do either or both!
