CPR Re-certification

This learning opportunity will provide you with an add-on to the scheduled programming.

The CFPM Conference is the perfect time to get recertified in CPR. Many employees and regulatory associations require it. If your skills are more that one year out of date you should take a full CPR course. 

CPR recertification will be provided by Heart Starters.

Entertainment 

Paige Warner is a singer-songwriter who favours soul-stirring lyrics paired with catchy melodies and a common flavour of contemporary R&B, yet each of her songs has its own unique mix of genres. Paige is skilled with more than just her voice, however; as she also accompanies herself with piano, guitar, and ukulele.
