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.
