Modern medical science has surpassed wizardry in all aspects of bodily healing, except in the ability to restore transmogrified cats to their human form. Cast aside your wand and hat with today’s Groupon to Emergency Response Training. Choose between the following options:
- For $100, you get an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) or Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) provider course (a $199 value).
- For $55, you get an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) or Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) renewal course (a $99 value).
Emergency Response Training’s classes, available throughout each month, equip healthcare providers with the adroitness and expertise necessary to respond to cardiovascular emergencies. The American Heart Association–certified training site gives nurses, emergency medical technicians, firefighters, and other first responders license to practice Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. In a small group setting, each two-day provider course imparts systematic skills for the recognition, assessment, and treatment of cardiac arrest. Licensed and professionally experienced instructors incorporate videos, lectures, and hands-on simulations to cover CPR techniques, airway management, rhythm recognition, and tools such as the automated external defibrillator (AED).
After attending 16 hours of class over two days, passing a written exam, and vowing to don Superman capes in times of dire need only, ticker-treaters receive a course-completion certificate that's valid for two years. Already-certified healthcare providers may opt instead for a one-day ACLS or PALS renewal course, each of which lasts eight hours and extends clock-starting licenses for an additional two years.
Prior to attending any class, students should be sure to complete the precourse checklist, walk the dog, and take out the trash. A provider manual ($33.50–$35, not included in this Groupon) is required for all ACLS and PALS courses, and renewal courses additionally require the purchase of a BLS written and skills test ($40, not included in this Groupon).
