Initially I was “volunteered” for this class and really didn’t really expect much. I have gone through CPR and First Aid training in the past and figured it would be very similar. Much to my surprise it was much more comprehensive (although they don’t provide CPR training). It was an enlightening experience to say the least. We had a verbal enactment at the beginning to show us our knowledge.
I have learned everything from psychology to sign language and all the various ways to deal with various crisis situations. After the 6 weeks of training we did a hands on application, I enjoyed this part!! This was a real eye opener into how much we learned. I would even recommend doing maybe two at the end instead of just one, so future students could really get the “hang of it”. I feel I’d be at least helpful in a crisis situation now. It’s nice to know I’d be a part of the solution not part of the problem.
Thank you very much to All who trained us!!
