The Training Calendar has been updated for the AHA classes at the end of the year. You will find that the recert classes have been changed to full 2-day classes in light of the new standards published by AHA this year.
The 2012 calendar will be published soon. You can expect to see repeats of these AHA courses over the first several months as we plan to get all GSCEMS Employees caught up on the new standards. Any suggestions or requests for that calendar for next year will be considered. Send me an email please.
As always, we welcome outside healthcare providers into our classes. We charge just enough to help recover our costs… $25 per certification course. Books and other required materials for the classes are the responsibility of the individual.
