LifeLine provides a full line of emergency education classes. Every one of our emergency education instructors are emergency medical professionals, working either full or part time in the EMS field either as paramedics, EMT’s, firefighters or emergency nurses. This brings immeasurable value to your class, since your instructor performs the skills they are teaching you on real people in real life emergencies.
We meet or exceed the guidelines in regards to the ratio of mannequins to students. This makes your class flow smoothly by removing the hassle of waiting in lines to practice your skills. The students can practice the skills until they are comfortable with them, and will leave the class confident in their understanding of the skills that were taught. It also lowers the possibility of cross contamination of germs between students. All accessories for training are provided in the class including the appropriate AED to match what has been deployed at your organization. This provides the best training possible for one of the most stressful events your staff will ever face by using the same system of rescue that will occur in the real world event they may face.
Classes utilize attractive and occasionally humorous multi-media presentations including PowerPoints, videos and DVDs. This allows us to keep the students stimulated and fully engaged in the training process making their training experience both beneficial and enjoyable. Our instructors constantly keep the students attention by encouraging questions and comments during the class. Our instructors also all believe that getting the students to laugh is a valuable tool to keeping their constant attention.
Students who attend the class will have access to the specific textbook the training is focused on during the class. This is a full sized, color book that the students can read and use for review throughout the class and they are available to students for an additional minimal fee if they wish to use it throughout the year. This keeps the skills they learn fresh in their mind, and easily remembered if they are called upon to respond to an emergency. Upon completion of the class, each student will receive a course completion/certification card from LifeLine. If needed, the specific certification card can be purchased through our partnership or a "Certificate of Education Credits" is available from LifeLine. The different training courses offered at LifeLine cover, a wide variety of health related topics and can be combined and customized to meet your specific needs.
After your class, LifeLine will have all the student documentation and education records. We will have all the course rosters on file, which makes it easy to quickly look to see who took what class and when. When it is time for your students to refresh their lifesaving skills, we will notify you in advance. During every certification year, we will provide the course completion cards in class so that the staff has them immediately.
