Itasca, IL – The National Safety Council will launch its 2009 June National Safety Month with free enrollment in two popular online training courses, June 1-7 only:
- “Alive at 25® Parent Program,” for parents of teen drivers, and
- “First Aid and CPR with AED,” basic training for adults.
The “Alive at 25 Parent Program” is an engaging, science-based course that educates parents about the risks teen drivers face. Through this two-hour online program, parents will learn how to reinforce basic driving skills and good decision-making that can help teens become safe and responsible drivers. Registration is free June 1-7 only at www.parentprogram25.com/NSM. (Click on “New Student” and enter “NSM” as an access code. Users will have 30 days to complete the program.)
“First Aid and CPR with AED” is a three-hour online course that can make the difference between life and death. Every year 1.1 million people in the U.S. have a heart attack and about half of them die. Many of these people could be saved if help came faster. Through this course, offered in conjunction with National CPR/AED Week, users will learn the latest method of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED), as well as how to help a person who is choking. First aid topics include bleeding, wound care, shock, burns, serious injuries, fractures and sprains. To register for free June 1-7 only, visit: www.nscfirstaid.com/nationalCPRweek.

Both courses are available all year, with a registration fee, at www.nsc.org.
National Safety Month is the NSC’s annual campaign to educate people about some of our nation’s leading causes of preventable deaths and injuries. It is also a great way for the NSC’s thousands of member businesses to promote safety among their employees and employee families.
