Team Certified from the John I. Leonard High School Medical Academy will be conducting Hands-Only CPR training in the auditorium at the Ideal Middle School (300 Royal Commerce Road, Royal Palm Beach) on Friday, Oct. 26 at 2 p.m.
Tania Martinez will be leading the training, along with her basic life support American Heart Association-certified students.
New laws in many states will require schools to train students in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before high school graduation. Team Certified will be starting the program that may become the standard for all Palm Beach County schools in the near future. The program will be enhancing student knowledge on CPR and will be teaching them how to react when there is an emergency situation.
Events such as this are made possible because of the funding and mentoring that Team Certified received from the Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank. The team was one of nine finalists that participated in last year’s event and was awarded $12,500 to help fulfill this idea.
