CHARLOTTETOWN – May 3, 2018 – All those who would like to obtain their first aid certification, including the use of defibrillators, are invited to sign up for a full-day course June 7 at the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean in Charlottetown.

Professional trainer John Mitchell from Mitchell’s First Aid Services of Union Corner will deliver the training in English from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for RDÉE Prince Edward Island and the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI.

“This training is first being offered to the participants of our PERCÉ internship program, but we’ve still got several spots left for people from the public who’d like to obtain their certification,” explains Stéphane Blanchard, youth economic development officer with the RDÉE. “We’re offering the full day of training, including lunch and coffee break snacks, for $115, taxes included, per person. The number of people we can take is limited to we’ll accept participants on a first-come, first-served basis.”
