CPR – Training for Life
As part of the 2007 Annual Conference, the Health & Safety Commission will offer a new event: CPR – Training For Life. This session will be led by Tom McCracken of the Phoenix Fire Department. The session will follow the American Heart Association's Heartsaver program for teaching Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Instruction will also include use of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) and other related topics. Upon successful completion of the CPR Skills Test, participants will receive an AHA Heartsaver AED Course Completion Card.
USITT and the Health & Safety Commission hope to make this an annual offering, enabling members to earn their CPR certifications and be able to maintain that credential by participating in periodic refresher sessions – all while attending the Annual Conferences.
This year's CPR Training session will be offered on Saturday March 17 at 1 p.m. Pre-registration for this training is strongly recommended, and registration details can be found on the USITT Conference website. As a benefit to USITT members, this training is being offered at the reduced rate of $10 for members. Those who are not USITT members are eligible to take the course but the cost will be $20 each.
