Taking a course

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive June 2004: Taking a course
By Mrse on Saturday, June 19, 2004 - 11:07 am:

Hello everyone, this morning I am taking a course. The cpr/firstaid course. I need it for my work, it is required by my new empoyer. I am really nervous, dh was going to come with me, but I felt bad that he would have to sit in a class room all day so I told him he did not have to go, it was basically to hold my hand as I am so nervous. He has taken the course before. It is at 8:30 this morning, so I will have to leave here pretty quick. wish me luck, ahhhhhhhhhhh

Don't sweat it, Mrse. I've taken dozens of CPR/First Aid classes over the years (even taught CPR for the Red Cross for a while when I was in the military). They've changed it a little bit each year to make it easier. They want it to be as easy as possible, because they want people to remember it in an emergency. Good luck! :)

First aid & cpr are not hard courses. I took them years ago when I worked in a nursing home. I then had to take them before I could bring my ds home. They had changed quite a bit, but the same pricipal was there.

How did your class go?

Well I am back, it has been a very long day, only got out a half hour early, thank goodness the class room was air conditioned, as it is a scorcher today. It was good, but everyone I talked to felt the same way I did that you feel a bit insecure, wondering if you are going to remember everything in case of an emergencey. I pasted, but from the sounds of it, that is not hard since he has only failed 1 person the whole time he has been teaching and that was because the guy would not participate at all. Once the course was over I was talking to a lady coming out of the building, and was not paying attention and I walked off the edge of the concrete down onto the side walk, I did not fall, but wrenched my back something terrible, I am in a fair amount of pain. My birthday is on monday but dh, has invited the family over to celebrate, tonight, not really into it, I am tired , hot and in pain. but I get presents!!! lol. I will be 39 on monday june 21. Getting close to forty ahhhhhhhhh.
