CORONAVIRUS NOTICE - UPDATE - WE'RE OPEN!
WE HAVE BEEN CLEARED TO RESUME CLASSES AND OUR SCHEDULE IS POSTED! In addition to the AHA Guidelines for In-classroom CPR Instruction (which can be found by CLICKING HERE), we have implemented additional guidelines which exceed those provided by the AHA. Those guidelines are as follows:
1 – Except as otherwise noted, all AHA BLS Classroom Instruction Guidelines (attached) will be followed at all times. Exceptions to that policy will generally be more restrictive than the recommendation from AHA.
2 – Each student shall have their own manikin to practice skills requiring breaths. This will limit classes to no more than 8 students per class for skills classes, and 12 students per class for non-skills classes, such as naloxone training.
3 – Students will verbalize giving mouth-to-mouth respirations for adults, and mouth-to-mask/mouth respirations for infant CPR, and will demonstrate proper hand and mask placement.
4 – For skills that do not require breaths (infant CPR, etc.), no more than two students may share a manikin, which must be decontaminated by use of an approved manikin wipe between uses.
5 – Bag valve masks will be decontaminated after each use.
6 – The post-class decontamination policy is amended to require all manikins to have used lungs discarded after EACH class, and each used manikin will be stripped and decontaminated with a 10:1 water/bleach solution following each class.
7 – Social distancing guidelines are to be followed, except as required to provide correctional instruction. Manikins should be spaced at least 3 feet apart during skills sessions. All instructors are to wear masks during the delivery of the course.
8 – Hand sanitizer will be provided, and students and instructors will be required to use hand sanitizer before class begins, after each practical session, and after returning from breaks.
9 – Instructors will wear disposable gloves when handling used manikins or equipment, and during decontamination procedures.
10 – No more than two (2) students per 6-foot table to maintain proper distancing.
11 – All students, instructors, and facilitators must be symptom-free and will be temperature screened prior to admission to the classroom.
12 – Any student who is displaying symptoms may cancel at any time, without penalty.
The Chain of Survival: Only As Strong As the Weakest Link. Early CPR saves lives.
This comprehensive 16-20 hour course is ideal for Instructors certified to teach CPR, AED, and basic first aid, who have wilderness experience.
This training is required for all personnel who work with human blood or blood products such as those workers in the medical, police, fire, and ems field.
I was watching my little brother and he started choking. I followed the procedures I learned your class I needed for school and my brother is alive today thanks to you.
I not only receive more babysitting jobs on the weekends due to my CPR training, but I feel more confident when I'm watching kids thanks to you.
