Description:

Are you interested in learning or refreshing your Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) skills? I'm offering a 4 hour course on emergency CPR. The course will be taught at the Layperson (C) level and include a few skills (Assised Respiration, Hypothermic patients ...) which are more likely to be useful in the backcountry then the simple layperson CPR.

I've been an instructor for the Canadian Red Cross through the McMaster Emergency First Response Team and McMaster Ath & Rec for 3 years. I've been an Emergency Medical Responder through EFRT for 5 years. This course will be offered for free for those interested and you will not recieve any certification ($$$).

If you know or have access to any of the following please email me: First Aid Manuals (Red Cross), ACTAR or equivilent CPR training dummies, Automated External Defibrilator trainer (or a real one we can borrow), AED pads to use.

 

If you have any CPR/First Aid instructor experience please email me, the more instructors I can muster the more students we can take on. I would like to maintain a maximum instructor:student of 1:12. I rather teach a few people to do it well then a lot of people to do it shitty. If there is a lot of interest we can add a second date.

 

If you have any specific topics you would like covered (or skipped) please be vocal about it, use the link on the message board.

The course will be limited to 12 participants at this time.

Cheers!

We have room IBLC 185 for this.
