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. ;)
