WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A GROUP CPR CLASS?
Through participation in a group CPR training, your team will have an opportunity to work together in both an unstructured and structured environment. Not only does this type of training build trust and comradery among team members but it can also increase the job morale of each employee.
The following are some of the benefits of Help-A-Heart CPR’s group CPR and First Aid training programs:
1. You can actually practice and learn in the environment in which the medical emergency may occur.
A great benefit CPR training in the workplace is that you’re practicing right in the very room or space where the potential emergency would occur. Each attendee will get hands-on experience administering CPR in the office or workplace, locating emergency supplies, finding the best phone to use, and more. Getting to practice right in the workplace will help your team get familiar with their surroundings and ultimately act faster in the event of an emergency.
2. It is much easier to fit a group training experience into the schedule of each person.
With the busy schedule that everyone is juggling these days, it can be difficult to fit a CPR or First Aid training class into your schedule. One benefit of group group CPR training is that you don’t need to schedule transportation or cut time from work––we will bring all training materials and equipment to you.
