Each year, some human anatomy students take a CPR certification course in order to be prepared for a medical emergency.

These students spent Wednesday, Nov. 6, undergoing the certification process during school.

Students who passed the course will receive certifications to conduct CPR and first aid, use an automatic external defibrillator, and administer an Epi-pen.

In order to take the certification class, students paid $30.

Senior Alexis Echols conducts breaths on an infant practice dummy Wednesday, Nov. 6, during a CPR training course.

Mrs. Kandy Cousins, human anatomy teacher, believes that everyone should know how to preform CPR because it may help save someone else’s life.

“The training teaches you what to do in case of a medical emergency,” Cousins said. “Oftentimes, the medical emergency occurs at home or in a workplace and a first responder is just a regular person — not a medical professional — so they need to have some idea on what to do until an ambulance arrives.”

Senior Alexis Echols believes the course will help her in the future.

“I want to be able to save people who need help,” Echols said. “I think it should be a requirement just in case of an emergency.”

Seniors Trenton DiGenova and Ethan Livingston hold up infant practice dummies during a CPR certification course Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Senior Trenton DiGenova learned much through the certification course and is glad he paid for the opportunity.

“The training was very informative,” DiGenova said. “Everyone should know CPR.”

Outside of the program, junior Ian Carpenter thinks the school should host CPR training regularly.

“It’s something everyone should have a basic idea of how to do if an emergency happens,” Carpenter said.
