EMT School, week 1 redux

I’m back in EMT school.  During week one, we went over CPR.  Note, I didn’t say that we CERTIFIED in CPR, just that we went over it.  I felt somewhat cheated, since we sat through the CPR training materials for adults, children, and infants, including AED usage.  Apparently, the certification test will be some time in October.

I understand the rationale of having CPR instruction be the very first thing in class (“because now that you’re a medical person, people will expect you to be able to DO something if their loved one collapses”), but I’m not sure I understand the delay in certification testing.

Ah, well.
