CSRA company teaches local teens life-saving skills

Andrena Garnett wants her clients to be prepared to save a life because in an emergency, every second counts.

Garnett – owner of Anerd 4 Life LLC, teaches the American Heart Association’s CPR, basic life support, and first aid certification courses. She will hold a teen training day on Saturday, Oct. 23 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 930 Stevens Creek Road in the ABD boardroom. “I want everyone to understand how important it is to be certified because you can save a life,” says the former Pre-K teacher and daycare director. Garnett states as of Saturday, Oct. 16, four teens had registered for the event, which left two slots available. The cost to register is $50. She will teach the basic CPR and first aid class through a combination of lecture and hands-on activities. Of course, teaching teens is much different than teaching adults. Because they often have short attention spans and love social media, Garnett explains she will also incorporate appropriate TikTok videos into the training to “keep them excited and engaged.” The event will also include painting, and light refreshments will be served.

Garnett launched Anerd 4 Life in 2019 and moved into her current location, where she teaches training classes twice a month, in June 2021. “I am mobile as well,” which means she also travels to local businesses to provide training for their employees, Garnett states. While the training day will be her first time teaching teens, she has taught a variety of classes designed for parents, including a mommy and me class. Garnett says she looks forward to “seeing the excitement on the kids’ faces” as they learn new life-saving skills. She plans to make it a regular event. “It won’t be monthly,” she adds. “It may be quarterly.”


To register for the event, send a Facebook message to Anerd 4 Life LLC. For more information about classes offered, visit or call 706-426-1720.
