Halloween CPR 2014 (yes, Fri. Oct. 31)
It’s time for Halloween CPR, a time to have some fun – and still learn the life-saving skills of CPR, and in this case, American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers course. An official, authorized, 2-year certification course, accepted at every hospital/clinic/nursing/medical/dental school in GA.
Newnan CPR usually has a BLS for Healthcare Providers class the last Friday of each month – why not have a special one on Halloween day? Why not give folks that dress up in a costume to have fun with us, a $10 discount? Why not throw in some treats, and a prize for best outfit?
OK, on Oct. 31, we’ll do Halloween CPR, a regular BLS for Healthcare class, but more fun. If you’ve completed authentic AHA BLS for HCP online Part 1 at onlineAHA.org, and only need a Skills Session, then the Skills Practice (Part2) and Skills Check (Part 3) will be at 8:00 am, and cost $25.
The full BLS for HCP classroom course will start at 9:00 am, with Elvis, Justin Bieber, and Willie Robertson teaching (yes, they’re real AHA BLS instructors). The course fee is $50, but it’s only $40 if you’re in a Halloween outfit/costume of some type. (Sorry, but doctor’s smock, scrubs, nurses outfit, or dental hygiene clothing doesn’t count – that’s what our normal BLS class looks like). Yes, BLS certification card issued same day. Flyer.
Where? Well, we really tried to get a Haunted House to teach this class, but they were pretty busy this time of year (before 10/5 or after 11/5 works for them – but didn’t sound right for us). So, Halloween CPR will be in Newnan, at Univ. of West GA (7 Solar Cir, Newnan 30265). 9:00 am class time. Sure, you can bring cameras. Zombies are welcome, so are firemen, cops, cheerleaders, singers, band members, gorillas, and ex-Presidents). We call it Halloween CPR, but it’s is a legitimate BLS for Healthcare CPR course, so students need to be able to do chest compressions in your outfit.
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. 31, 2014 9:00 am for BLS classroom class. Should be over at 12:20 pm. FLYER.
