Remembering your skills is just as important as learning them

Two years is a long time between CPR renewals and unfortunately many people have difficulty recalling the skills they learned at their last training. We can help you remember your skills for when you need them the most.  

Here's how:

1. Creating a low-stress environment

Studies show that learning in a low-stress environment can help us better retain information, which makes it easier to ACT FAST in a real emergency! Our classes are fun and relaxed so you don't just learn for today, you learn for every day. 

2. Using mnemonic devices

Mnemonics are tools that can be used to assist human memory such as pictures, acronyms, and rhymes. Words are abstract and often difficult to remember, but visuals provide concrete information. Research shows that the effective use of visuals can decrease learning time, improve comprehension, enhance retrieval, and increase retention. 

3. Explaining the WHYs and HOWs

We don't just give you the facts; we explain why changes were made to how CPR is performed, what is happening inside the victim's body when you perform CPR, how exactly the AED (heart machine) works, etc. When things make sense they are easier to remember.

4. Personalizing the course for YOU

We come to your facility and train your entire staff on emergency situations that are site-specific to your workplace. We tailor our classes to suit your profession and train your staff on location, so in a real life emergency they can work together quickly and efficiently exactly as practiced. 

Our team of American Heart Association and ASHI accredited instructors are committed to making sure every member of your team masters the skills learned in class. We are happy to work with a student one-on-one during the training session or meet with him or her privately for complimentary remediation.
