CBC to Offer Basic Life Skills for Healthcare Providers CPR Course

The Basic Life Skills for Healthcare Providers CPR Certification course will be held at Coastal Bend College Beeville and Coastal Bend College Kingsville. The cost of the seven-hour course includes tuition and materials at $50. Those who satisfactorily complete the course will receive a certificate of completion from Coastal Bend College.

According to the American Heart Association, “about 92% of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital, but statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, and even triple, a victim’s chance of survival.” Also, Choking is the No. 1 cause of unintentional death in infants.

In addition to the personal benefits that can come from knowing CPR, many health care and education training programs, as well as companies and organizations, require students and employees to be certified in Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers. CPR protocol recently dramatically changed from the previous “ABCs” of CPR.

Through the CBC Continuing Education CPR Program, you can learn to give “the breath of life” in one of our one-day training courses. This class, which meets the American Heart Association requirements for CPR programs, provides the prospective or actual health care professional with the knowledge and skills needed to perform CPR with the use of an automated external defibrillator and bag mask for infant, child and adult patients.

The Basic Life Skills for Healthcare Providers CPR Certification will be held once a month in CBC Beeville Dan A. Hughes Petroleum Technology Building, Room 107 and CBC Kingsville, Room 123 through May from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. The cost of the course is $50.

The dates for course are as follows: March 6, March 20, April 3, April 17, May 1, and May 15.
