This upcoming week at SDSU there will be a series of events happening that may peak the interest of many students. The first of five events is a CPR/AED/First Aid Certification happening on Sunday, September 23, from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM in front of the Arc. It costs $55.00 for the one day certification. The one day class is broken down into three sections. The first section, The Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) portion of the course will teach you how to perform CPR on children, adults, or elderly people. There will be a series of scenarios with test dummies to give you the hands on experience while performing procedures that will test your knowledge. The second portion of the class teaches you more about the function and operation of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED). AEDs are used to assist an individual during cardiac arrest and are proven to help increase the chances of survival so knowing how to properly operate one can come in handy. The last portion of the class focuses on the recognition of emergencies and how to perform First Aid in many situations.
The second of these events is happening on Tuesday, September 25 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM at Viejas Arena. It is an Effective Interview workshop put on by Career Services to allow students to further increase their interview skills.
