Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I do have a standard pricing. For healthcare professionals needed their BLS Certification (new or renewing) the cost is $60 (does not include price of training book). For non-healthcare professionals: Teachers, Babysitters and Youth Coaches looking for First Aid/CPR and AED Training the cost is $85 (does not include price of training book). American Heart Association calls this Heart Saver Training. This class is much longer than the BLS class for healthcare providers. I am able to offer Blended Learning which consists of online training (which is similar to sitting in the classroom) followed by skills session to show that you can pass a skills session to earn your certification. The cost of the training book is included in the cost of course.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Every client is different and has it's own certain processes. We usually have a conversation about what is needed and how soon it is needed. We also discuss if I need to travel to them to complete the training. We can meet at your local park, doctor's offices, schools or community centers. I prefer public places for safety reasons for everyone. We also can meet at my local Park District-- Rutherford Sayre Park to complete training.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I served six years as a Medical Specialist in the US Army. I am a Certified Allied Health Instructor, Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, Certified EKG Tech, Certified Phlebotomy Tech and First Aid/CPR Instructor through American Heart Association. I am currently teaching Medical Assistants in the classroom teaching them all the skills needed to know about becoming a professional healthcare worker. This includes: Infection Control, Diagnostic Testing--obtaining vital signs, drawing blood and obtaining EKG's. In addition; I prepare the students for their certification exam so they can become employed as Medical Assistants, Phlebotomists or EKG Technicians. I also studied Adult Education/Human Resource Development at Northeastern Illinois University; this helps me to be an even better educator and trainer because of this training.
