SpecialistMike :

Customer:

yes

SpecialistMike :

Have you ever taken an in person course before?

Customer:

no

SpecialistMike :

OK i have taken A LOT myself

SpecialistMike :

i can tell you immediately that an in person course

SpecialistMike :

with a quality instructor is going to be considerably more valuable

SpecialistMike :

and make you MUCH more comfortable

SpecialistMike :

in the event you ever have to use your skills

SpecialistMike :

they have dummies of all sizes for simulation on adults, kids, infants

SpecialistMike :

they teach you the correct amount of force for chest compressions

SpecialistMike :

the correct amount of breath for rescue breathing

SpecialistMike :

and the dummies basically "react" as to simulate a real human

SpecialistMike :

there is no comparison to real life hands on CPR training to something online

Customer:

ok. that is what I was thinking too, but hearing it out loud, makes my decision so much easier. I'll take an actual class. How much do classes run do you know? or do they all cost different amounts based on who has them?

SpecialistMike :

well it depends on who is putting them on

SpecialistMike :

i used to always do the redcross ones

SpecialistMike :

they were like 40 or so at the time

SpecialistMike :

through my employer

SpecialistMike :

and when i was a graduate student it was like 10 dollars

SpecialistMike :

I would look locally for instructors

SpecialistMike :

it would be important in my eyes to get feedback on instructors

SpecialistMike :

you actually want to learn the skills as opposed to just taking the class

SpecialistMike :

the instructors make a HUGE difference

SpecialistMike :

because if the time comes

SpecialistMike :

you gotta be familiar

SpecialistMike :

and comfortable
