As a teacher your students become like family, you celebrate their success and uplift then during their downfalls. You wear several different hats; you are a mentor, educator, and counselor to hundreds of students. Another role that is important for a teacher is being a first responder. In a medical emergency your students will look toward you to save a life. Would you know how to react and provide lifesaving CPR in an emergency.
As one of Massachusetts’ largest American Heart Association Training Sites CPR of America is proud to train thousands of people each year. We provide the guaranteed lowest prices on all our on-site American Heart Association CPR, AED, and First Aid training. Since our founding we have provided classes to prestigious clients such as Harvard University, IBM, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Turner Construction Co, and hundreds of others. What separates us from the competition is our courses which are taught by current first responders, EMTs, or nurses. Our instructors use the skills that they teach on a daily basis to save lives.
For teachers we recommend that you take an American Heart Association First Aid and CPR course.
In this course we cover the following topics
· How to use an epinephrine autoinjector to reverse an allergic reaction
