Event description

Description

Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a recommended certification for outdoor professionals and is required to maintain SOLO certifications. If provided immediately after cardiac arrest, CPR may double a patient's chance of survival. This 2-hour course teaches adult, child, & infant CPR and AED, as well as choking rescue in accordance to the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) curriculum. This is a two-year certification.

Why SOLO Southeast? Our instructors have extensive outdoor experience and are selected for their expertise in emergency medicine and rescue as well as for their teaching abilities. You are learning from the best - in the best location. SOLO Southeast is located at the intersection of the Nantahala River and the Appalachian Trail at NOC's Wesser Campus, meaning you learn wilderness medicine IN the wilderness.

WHEN: February 23, 2019

6 - 8pm

WHERE: Palmetto Conservation Foundation Office - 722 King Street, Columbia, SC 29205

COST: $40 per person


What to bring:

  • Any snacks, lunch (and dinner if you plan to participate in both certifications), and drinks you may want or need during each day.
  • Pen and paper
  • Your personal/ preferred backpacking gear (such as a backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tarp/ tent/ whatever you use for shelter while camping, and any other gear you typically have with you when backpacking. Having your own gear for the course allows you to learn how to improvise in a realistic manner during a medical emergency while participating in the hands on portion of the course).
  • Rain gear/ cold weather gear (the certifications will happen rain or shine, regardless of the temperature- and some portions of the class will be held outside).
