Classes in First Aid/CPR are held monthly at the Education Center, with a variety of class times to suit everyone’s schedule.

The April class will be held Saturday, April 20, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. This class will be taught by Pete Peterson, while our May regular classes are taught by Carl Macht.

The May classes will be held Saturday, May 4, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., and a Monday/Wednesday class on Monday, May 13, and Wednesday, May 15, from 6-10 p.m. Spring is our busiest time for First Aid/CPR classes, so sign up early to ensure your place.

For spring rafting guides and summer outfitters, two recertification classes will be held — Saturday, May 11, and Wednesday,May 22, both taught by Pete Peterson. If you plan to take a recertification class, start looking for that almost-expired certificate, which is required to be eligible to take a recertification class. Without proof of your previous certificate, you will need to take the full class.

Two levels of QuickBooks classes, Intro and Advanced, will be held on May 4 and 11, taught by Betty Woollard. These Saturday classes will be held 9 a.m.-4 p.m., with a short lunch break. The cost is $75 per class.

The Intro class will cover the basics of this accounting software, including setting up customers, vendors and employees, journal entries, recording sales and receivables and writing checks. Students attending the Intro to QuickBooks class should have some bookkeeping experience and understand accounting terms, as this class will focus on QuickBooks programs and products, and not accounting training.

The Advanced class will be for current QuickBooks users, and will include payroll, creating subaccounts, reconciling bank statements and running reports.
