I just had to check up on my certification during a work audit. I'm still good through Nov 2011.

I learned through the Saint John Ambulance a month ago. It was a 2 day Senior First Aid course and I recommend it to everyone! I feel so much more confident now.

My certification expires the end of March.  I'm signed up for a class the week after next.

Trained in First Aid/CPR/AED.  Mainly for the job, but I think the skills are good to have for other reasons as well.  I even used my first aid this summer- splinted a kid's wrist in the woods with hair bands and a stick.  I don't ever want to do that again.  My motto is "I know first aid and CPR, but I don't like to have to use them."

I am almost done with the classes to become a CPR/AED/First Aid trainer.  I can only train the general community (not healthcare professionals), but I'm actually very excited to get started.  My office installed AED's in all our locations 2 years ago and my HR department decided that we should offer classes.  Since I'm the corporate trainer, I was one of the ones selected to become a certified trainer.  :)

I just got recertified in First Aid/CPR/AED for my CERT class.

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.
