Just wondering if anyone here has been certified for it. I got certified this morning for the first time (adult/child only...not infant). The hospital I work at offered the class free to employees, so I figured what the hell. I'm a finance guy not a healthcare worker, so I've never been through the training class. Pretty interesting class, and it's nice having this newfound knowledge now.
I've been certified for CPR numerous times, and First Aid once. Although my first aid certificate has expired and I have never used it ever, I think that if I ever had to use what I learnt, I would have forgotten what to do.
No Milk, no.
Milk is for babies. When you grow up, you have to drink beer.
Please read and comment on my journal
Yep - adult and child CPR & First Aid, through both Red Cross and American Heart Association. Have to have it for my job. The first time I did it, the lady kinda hacked her way through the class. I felt like it was a B.S. class, and she didn't do a good job of it. The second time, the instructor was very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond what he had to teach us. It was an amazing experience.
I have to renew soon, so I'll have to take it again next month or january. I really enjoyed it and have thought about becoming an instructor several times. Never end up looking into it though.
Yup, I was CPR certified as part of my major, which is also a requirement for virtually any personal trainer certification.
the things that is funny is that they make you get certified to work in a gym. and then they tell you never to perform CPR on someone becasue if it goes wrong the family can sue you and that you can't put your mouth on people because of diseases and germs..etc....What the hell is the point of getting it if you aren't allowed to use it?
