Improve Your Resume and Life with our CPR Healthcare Provider Certification Class in Appleton, WI
While cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification is not a requirement to become a dental assistant in the state of Wisconsin, it is nonetheless preferred by most dental employers. In any medical field, you want to be prepared for the worst case scenario. Weekend Dental Assistant School is offering CPR Certification courses to help our current students, past graduates, and practicing dental assistants keep up-to-date with their CPR Certification and stay prepared for any situation which may arise.
The potential of cardiac arrest occurring during some procedures—not to mention the number of different things which can go wrong during procedures requiring anesthesia—makes CPR certification a popular addition to our Wisconsin dental assistant training program using state-of-the-art training equipment.
How Long Does CPR Certification Last?
Weekend Dental Assistant School is proud to offer its students a CPR course with a two-year certification. Our CPR course gives comprehensive training, including the proper use of automated external defibrillator (AED), as well as obstructed airways and choking.
A dental office is not the most logical or commonly considered location for a serious medical emergency to occur. However, it can happen! Periodontal disease is linked to heart disease, after all.
