Halloween CPR – 2015 (yes, it’s back)
In 2014, Halloween CPR was a big hit. The students loved it, the instructors loved it – there was a good prize for the “best costume” (voted on by the students). Of course, everyone got a BLS for Healthcare Providers certification card before they left class. All but two students wore a costume – so that means they only paid $40 for an official AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers course. Great deal for them, too!
We usually teach a BLS course the last Friday of each month at UWG-Newnan, so we’re doing “Halloween CPR” again on the last Friday of October, 2015. Yes, we know it’s a day prior to the REAL Halloween day. But, most folks already have their outfit – so, why not join Newnan CPR for “Halloween CPR” on Fri., Oct. 30 this year. BLS course is 9:00 am – 12:15 pm, at the NEW campus of UWG-Newnan. Why not throw in some treats, and a prize for best outfit?
So, on Oct. 30, 2015, we’ll have round 2 of Halloween CPR, a regular BLS for Healthcare class, but just slightly more fun. We’re also doing our regular “BLS Skills Session”, at 8:00 am, for folks that completed their authentic AHA BLS for HCP online Part 1 at onlineAHA.org. Those folks only need a BLS Skills Session, which we’ll do from 8:10 am til 8:45 am – that costs $25.
Our regular BLS for Healthcare Provider classroom course will start at 9:00 am, with Donald Trump, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, or Willie Robertson teaching. You guessed – we don’t know who’s coming to teach, but they will be an authentic AHA BLS Instructor. Our regular course fee for BLS is $50, but on 10/30/2015, it’s only $40 if you’re in a Halloween costume or outfit. Please, no scrubs, nurses outfit, doctor smock, or dental hygiene clothing – that’s what our BLS students wear the rest of the year. Yes, BLS certification card issued same day.
Where? Univ. of West GA – Newnan Campus. That is the NEW campus, 80 Jackson St. Newnan (where the orig. Newnan Hospital used to be). 9:00 am class time for BLS for Healthcare Providers course. Yes, cameras are welcome. So, invite your football player friends, famous singers, and ex-Presidents. Zombies can come, also – so long as they can do chest compressions and breaths without biting the live students. This is a legitimate AHA BLS for Healthcare Providers course, so we will teach CPR, not just have a Halloween Party.
Who? Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers is targeted at medical professionals and students in medical/dental/EMT fields. AHA BLS for HCP is the gold standard in Basic Life Support training! Can non-medical folks take and pass this class? Absolutely, have never had a non-medical person fail it. There are only two skills taught in BLS that are not taught in Heartsaver CPR, namely giving breaths with a bag-mask (rather than mouth-on-mouth) and practicing/testing using 2-person CPR (as opposed to 1-person CPR in Heartsaver). The discounted price makes the Halloween CPR BLS for HCP class the same price as our Heartsaver CPR/AED course.
When? Fri. Oct. 30, 2015 from 9:00 am – 12:15 pm. 2015 FLYER.
