CPR/First Aid Training

I haven't really commented on my progress on the Before I'm 30 list lately, but I recently completed a task that I'm pretty proud of!

I wanted to learn CPR and First Aid.  I felt like it was important knowledge to have, since they say that the people you are most likely to perform these on will be your family and loved ones.

When I heard our office was offering the training for free, I jumped on the chance!  As part of the bargain, I am now designated as trained within my office in case someone needs First Aid.  I really felt like much of it was intuitive and easy to remember.

We did practice CPR with mouth-to-mouth.  Hands-Only CPR is being pushed now for those who don't have traditional training, as well as situations where you don't have a barrier for the air.  In many First Aid situations, we'd have a kit with gloves and a mouth guard airway thingy.  (I'm so technical, right?)

Most boring blog post ever, but I'm pretty proud of this one!  Not-so-humblebrag.  Woohoo!


  1. Congrats! I feel lame for not knowing CPR. Maybe I should get on that.

    1. Thanks! It feels good to have the knowledge, though I hope I never have to use it.

  2. Not boring at all! I got AED/CPR certified when I was in college for my job and I thought it was SO cool to have that little card in my wallet. ;)

  3. Nice article. Basic Life Support Class Nashville teach American Heart Association CPR classes in the Nashville, Tennessee area. You can visit us

  4. Health experts strongly recommend CPR Class CPR training for teenagers and adults, especially parents and other people who are responsible for watching over children. Classes are offered at many organizations and can be found in most communities for minimal cost or sometimes for free.
