The course will be taught by Valerie Wood, a sought after instructor in the GTA, Toronto First Responder, and owner of ERT-CPR.  Her teaching style makes the seriousness of the topic interesting, engaging and memorable.  You will leave with the security, peace of mind and knowledge to jump into action in the event of an emergency, the whole purpose of doing these workshops.

In our classes, babies are welcome, but you may find it easier to concentrate if you’re able to make alternate arrangements for child care.You also get to come back for a free 2nd Refresher course anytime within 12 months of the initial workshop.

This is ideal for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and caregivers – anyone looking after your child who needs the skills to save them in a choking incident or other serious situation. It is a non-certification course however, so if you need a certificate course, please check out for another workshop suitable to your needs.

About brendaandrew

I am super excited to be the new Program Director for the Newmarket/Aurora area. With roots in the area and as a mom myself of two young boys, I know the challenges that Moms have in needing good information to help with raising baby, wanting to get out of the house and have time to bond not just with your baby but with other moms who are going through similar challenges and life experiences as you. I had wanted to be part of Mommy Connections for a few years before I joined. For some reason, I went back to a full time marketing corporate type job after my first child, because I thought it was the right and responsible thing to do, and didn't really enjoy it because it took me away from spending time with my son. Before my son, the corporate marketing gig was great, but I found upon returning to work, my priorities had changed, as it does for most Moms. WIth the job market in my field of work being really difficult after my second son was born, I was finding it hard to find full time work again. I made it my goal to find something that was going to work for me and my family and knew that I had to be resourceful. I ended up doing some marketing freelancing and consulting and then revisited the idea of becoming a Mommy Connections Director. I felt that at this particular time in my life it is the perfect solution for me to use my marketing and event expertise, do what I love, and also have the flexibility to be there for my kids. A match made in heaven. So here I am. And I couldn't be happier. I look forward to meeting all you Moms in the area. If you're anything like me - the more information and support I can get when it comes to raising my kids - the better.
