Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
The World Institute of Safety, which is the parent company of EnjoyCPR Safety Training (http://www.enjoycpr.com), one of the largest American Heart Association CPR/First Aid training centers is offering free hands-only CPR training. The World Institute of Safety, which has just moved their headquarters to downtown Baltimore, will be having a Meet and Greet on Friday, October 18th, from 2pm to 5pm.
“We want to open our doors for the community to offer free hands-only CPR training and introduce ourselves,” says Junetta Barnes, who is the Chief Operating Officer. EnjoyCPR Safety Training offers American Heart Association CPR, First Aid and OSHA Classes and Basic Workplace Safety and Emergency Preparedness. “Our students enjoy learning when they take our classes, which is where the ‘enjoy’ comes from. Having an enjoyable class makes people more effective students and better prepared to save a life,” says Mrs. Barnes. “We have learned that student confidence is a big predictor of by-stander involvement, so our classes reduce student anxiety which increases positive outcomes.”
The safety organization has worked with fortune 500 companies such as Amazon.com, federal, state and local government agencies and renowned universities. “At our meet and greet, we’ll have freebies, light refreshments and information for scheduling classes. We will also have 1-minute, hands-only CPR training offered to all of our guests,” Jo-Ann Aiken, Associate Director of Facility Management, stated. “Our goal is work with organizations to get more than 1000 new students trained in the downtown Baltimore area." EnjoyCPR Safety Training recently worked with AT&T and the Women of AT&T to train more than 1000 employees all over the country.
The training center offers CPR/First Aid classes at their offices in downtown Baltimore and 13 other locations in Maryland, along with classes in homes. Classes are also offered daily in various locations at 60 other locations around the country, which vary in cost. Their goal in 2014 is to add 100 new CPR Training locations and to train more than 500,000 students.
The meet and greet is free, open to the public and will be on Friday October 18th, from 2:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. at 20 South Charles St, 4th floor, Baltimore, MD 21201.
