E.H. answers from Austin on August 21, 2008
You might check with the hospitals to see if they offer a class. When my nephew was born 10 weeks early, Seton suggested I take their infant CPR classes slong with his parents, since I would be his caretaker while they worked. It was free at that time, but it was 20 years ago.

Seton offers one on their website - www.goodhealth.com. It's not for official certification but thorough - more designed for parents/care givers. I took it and the instructor was good. Plus small so you get to practice on the dolls. Thought this was a great idea since alot of those others scheduled were just difficult in terms of # of hours and knowing what was a good one.
