Survival Skills 101: February First Aid

The check is in the mail!

I have signed up to become certified in First Aid + CPR/AED – Adult + CPR – Infant/Child by the end of the month. I’m happy to say that it’s a lot easier than I thought!

It technically just requires one block of time: for example, you could receive your certification in all of the above skills on one Saturday from 9 – 5 p.m.!  I selected a “Blended” course, so that I can complete the online course work at home at my own pace (Viv will probably watch some of it with me) and attend a 3-hour evening class that covers the hands-on instruction. I selected this option over the all-day-Saturday course so that we could access the information for a year and I wouldn’t have to sacrifice an entire Saturday. I must admit, though, completing the entire certification in one fell swoop was awfully tempting.

Make this the month you brush up on some life-saving skills, too!
