Workplace Medical Emergencies happen every day and we can prepare your staff for these medical emergencies.  Our CPR, First Aid and AED classes are both educational and fun. Our philosophy is that learning should be fun. We feel that if you have fun, laugh and the CPR class is interesting you will enjoy yourself and will absorb and retain the material better. Another major difference, all of our instructors have actually performed CPR, First Aid and used AEDs on real people. Not all instructors have real world CPR First Aid AED experience, they simply read about CPR and First Aid in a book. We believe real world experience makes for a better instructor and believe you will too.  All of our courses are designed to comply with the most current OSHA regulations.  We offer onsite group safety training classes at your business - sorry we do not offer classes for individuals.

Fort Myers CPR AED First Aid TrainingCan anyone teach CPR AED and First Aid? 
This is a common mistake I often see.  In an effort to reduce costs, managers either go with the low bid or attempt to do the training in house.  You should never cut costs on life saving training or life saving equipment.  Would you have your maintenance man install your fire suppression system?  Would you have human resources test and inspect your fire extinguishers?  The answer is no, you would not.  Both fire suppression systems and fire extinguishers are designed to save property.  CPR AED and first aid classes are designed to save lives.  Given the choice between saving lives or saving property, which in your opinion is more important and which do you think could result in the greatest liability?  Make certain your instructor is a full time instructor that has actually performed CPR and used First Aid in real life on real people.  Having people teach CPR that have never done CPR on real people is like taking flying lessons from a guy that has never really piloted an airplane before.  Bottom line – always hire a full time professional.

How often should CPR and First Aid training occur? 
The old expression use it or lose it comes to mind.  The American Heart Association (AHA) and Emergency Care and Safety Institute (ECSI) CPR AED and First Aid certification cards are valid for a period of 2 years.  Every 2 years may be sufficient for the actual training classes but safety drills, similar to the fire drills we had in school should be conducted on a regular basis.  These drills apply what was learned in the classroom to real life scenarios that can occur on the job site.

In addition to first aid treatment for medical emergencies what else do you cover? 
Our classes are student driven.  By this I mean no 2 classes are alike.  We encourage the students to talk about medical emergencies that they have seen either on the job or at home.  We discuss proper treatment for these emergencies, what to do, and what not to do.  We go through many different scenarios and we also stress accident prevention.  As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.  Often we discover safety concerns that management was unaware of.  Through our classroom discussions, management is then able to take action to correct any safety issues.

What else can I do to improve the safety of my staff? 
Quick access to the proper PPE – Personal Protective Equipment is a must for your staff.  Your PPE should include medical exam gloves, a CPR Mask, eye protection, biohazard bag and a face mask.  These are relatively inexpensive and should be placed in an easy to reach location to allow quick retrieval for use in the event of a medical emergency.

Does The CPR School offer classes in Spanish?
Yes, for groups of at least 10 employees we can have a bi-lingual instructor teach your CPR AED and First Aid Class in Spanish. 

Does The CPR School offer Bloodborne Pathogens HIV AIDS training?
Yes. We often combine this class with our CPR AED class.  Bloodborne Pathogens Training is an OSHA mandated training program for any person who may be "reasonably anticipated" to come into contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) as the result of performing their job duties.  OSHA Bloodborne pathogens. - 1910.1030

Who needs Bloodborne Pathogens Training?
Adult Day Care and Assisted Living Facility (ALF) Staff, Child Day Care Providers, Coaches and Personal Trainers, Construction Workers, CPR and First Aid First Responders, Emergency Response Teams (ERT & CERT), Cleaning, Housekeeping, Custodians and Janitorial Professionals, Health Care Providers including Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Dental Assistants and Dental Hygienists, CNA’s, Plumbers and Electricians, Tattoo Artists, Teachers, Police Officers, Corrections Officers and Security Guards.  This list should include anyone who may come in contact with blood or body fluid for any reason.

Does The CPR School conduct Emergency Medical Preparedness Safety Drills? 
Yes.  We offer onsite drills at your business, school or club.  We believe that training is very important, however even with expert professional CPR AED and First Aid instruction it is difficult to gauge how well your staff will react to a real medical emergency.  Our onsite CPR AED First Aid Safety drills are designed to test and rate the effectiveness of your employee health and safety program, it also allows us to evaluate if adequate first aid supplies, PPE, and AEDs are readily available.  Safety drills are the only way for us to clearly identify your businesses strengths and weaknesses in a proactive manner.
