ATTENTION INSTRUCTORS & STUDENT
Congratulations to the Community Training Center's BLS Instructor , Anne Slayton for her "Lifesaving Skills." Anne was able to act quickly, perform CPR and resuscitate an individual that suffered from a cardiac arrest utilizing HANDS ONLY CPR initiatives. The victim of the cardiac arrest is reportedly doing well. Thank you to Anne for her efforts. Our instructors and their efforts to teach and perform CPR correctly do make a difference within the community.
INSTRUCTORS: EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: ALL ROSTERS SUBMITTED TO THE TRAINING CENTER MUST BE IN A TYPED FORMAT.
STUDENTS: Please be advised that if you have not received your card within two months of your class, then you need to contact your instructor immediately. After the two month time period has lapsed, and you have not followed up about the status of your card, then you will be charged a fee of $10.00 for a replacement card.

Community Training Center Hours of Operation
NOTICE TO INSTRUCTORS:
When you agree to teach CPR to participants, please make sure they understand that there is a possible 20 day turnaround before they receive cards. If they need cards immediately, please do NOT send them to the Training Center to pick up their cards ahead of others who are awaiting the allotted time. Participants need to take courses in a time frame that allows for processing rosters and cards, and to receive their cards from their instructors. Many organizations will only accept the original card and NOT a course completion letter.
The Community Training Center trained over 50 individuals Hands Only CPR at the Heart and Stroke Walk at Tanglewood. The community is helping us to reach our training goal and learning to save the life of others.
The CTC will be open from 08:00AM-5:00PM. If you need to pick up rental equipment or to come in for other issues outside those hours, please call and we can make arrangements for your request in advance. Due to the nature of our business, we may be working offsite at another satellite. If possible, please schedule an appointment if you need to come in for issues other than dropping off rosters or picking up cards.
