The obligations of teachers are endless. Not only do they have the responsibility of instructing and guiding today’s youth, but they also have the responsibility of keeping them safe in the classroom. Emergencies can happen at any time. That’s why it’s important to always be prepared and be ready to act. Many organizations and municipalities require CPR certification for teachers to guarantee the safety of the students and maintain a safe learning environment. American BLS+ offers online training courses to satisfy your certification requirements while learning important life saving skills.
Potential emergencies that might occur in the classroom include:
- Allergy Attack
- Broken Bones
- And any more.
American BLS+ recommends that all teachers and school employees take the CPR Course and the First Aid Course. Both courses can be taken online. Teachers should always be prepared for the worst and trained to act quickly. By taking a course, teachers are learning the important skills and gaining the peace of mind that they are prepared to handle an emergency and help save lives.
The CPR/BLS course covers Hands-only CPR and rescue breaths, the use of an AED, and how to react quickly to keep the victim alive. The First Aid Course covers general injuries and helps prevent further injury or harm. Both courses are designed to keep the victim safe until until professional medical help arrives.
