Attentive Safety® provides essential services and will continue to have classroom certification courses following the American Heart Association guidelines for conducting classroom certification courses during the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
These guidelines will be followed for any classroom courses held at Attentive Safety®. Included in these guidelines are:
Asking any potential student to cancel their participation if they have had any known exposure to COVID-19 or if they feel ill with a cough and or fever. Attentive Safety® will screen students as they arrive for any classroom participation. Any student that demonstrates signs of illness ( cough / fever, etc ) will not be allowed to attend the course.
All Instructors and Staff at Attentive Safety® are screened daily.
Class registration will be limited to no more than 2 students per class to allow appropriate space between students.
All manikins and training equipment will be completely disinfected prior to any class.
All students, after arriving at Attentive Safety®, must wash their hands with soap and water before class.
All students will wear gloves (supplied by Attentive Safety®) during all manikin practice sessions.
All students will safely remove and discard all gloves used during the course.
All students will wash their hands after course completion prior to leaving Attentive Safety®.
Mouth to mouth practice with manikins will not be attempted.
These recommendations could very easily/quickly be changed as new information and guidelines are released.
As a viable option to classroom courses for certification, please remember that the American Heart Association does have “Blended Learning”. Blended learning allows the student to take a certification course Online, and then completes a Skills check-off with an American Heart Association Instructor to complete the certification process. This is a “one on one” skills check-off and significantly reduces exposure that could be involved with larger classroom courses. The student, if successful, receives a 2 year certification from the American Heart Association.
If you require current certification / recertification during the COVID-19 outbreak, Attentive Safety® will offer these options as listed above. Attentive Safety® is following enhanced protocols to assure optimal disinfection of our offices and training spaces, equipment and providing the safest possible environment.
If conditions and information changes, Attentive Safety® will make adjustments to meet these challenges. You may register and pay for any of our classes online at: https://www.attentivesafety.com
