Due to the overwhelming number of requests for pet cpr and first aid; we will begin offering the Pet CPR & First Aid certification beginning March 1, 2018. This course will be provided in alignment with Pet Emergency Education and will offer the student a comprehensive base knowledge of the assessment of a pet related emergencies including burns, poison control, shock, choking, allergic reactions, andcpr. Pet Emergency Education is a nationally recognized training and certification providing pet training to animal and veterinary professionals as well as pet owners.
The curriculum provided is based upon empirical research conducted at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. The Pet Emergency certification is also affiliated with such organizations as FEMA and the American Association of Veterinary Boards and is a continuing education provider for Certification for Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
Having recently completed the FEMA Animals in Disasters Certification Program and the Pet Emergency Education Instructor program I am looking forward to offering this class as part of our existing curriculum. If you or your organization are interested in hosting a Pet CPR & First Aid class, feel free to contact me directly or Pet Emergency Education at http://petemergencyeducation.com/
