Asterion Employees Receive First Aid, CPR, AED Training
Asterion’s corporate-based team members recently completed the American Heart Association Heartsaver first aid cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) course held at the company’s Indianapolis headquarters.
Billie Dzunda, Asterion’s health and safety manager, organized the training, which included both hands-on coaching and classroom teaching conducted by an American Heart Association certified instructor. All participants who completed the training were certified for two years.
