Has anyone taken any of these courses?
Was it worth it?
Did it help you to feel like you were prepared if anything happened to your children?
Have you ever had to use the skills, and do you feel like you were prepared/able to use the skills from the course?
We are looking into a course.
There are different options.
A couple of options that are 2.5 hours long class specifically for CPR. Run by paramedics.
And then there are the St. John's ambulance and Red Cross courses. Which are 8 hour courses and specialize in Infant, child and adult CPR. Much more expensive and more training. But is that level necessary?
Would you opt for a first aid and CPR or just CPR?
We were thinking of doing this when our 3.5 yr old was born. But never got around to it. Now we have a 3.5 yr old and 3 month old twins. So are back to thinking it is a good idea. The money isn't a problem. But the time for our family is at a premium.
Thanks for any input and insight.
