The American Heart Association has released information and guidelines for conducting classroom certification courses during the COVID-19 virus outbreak. GCCPR will continue to have classroom certification courses, on a limited basis, following these guidelines.
These guidelines will be followed for any classroom courses held (including one on one Skills Check-off’s) at the GCCPR Training Center. 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. GCCPR 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 GCCPR are screened daily.
Class registration will be limited to allow appropriate space between students.
All manikins and training equipment will be completely disinfected prior to any class.
All students are required to wear masks during the course.
All students, after arriving at GCCPR, must wash their hands with soap and water before class.
All students will wear gloves (supplied by GCCPR) 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 GCCPR.
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
