As of 3/27/2020 all layperson classes will be cancelled through 5/4/2020. This is to follow the NH Governor’s Emergency Order #17 to Stay At Home. All BLS Healthcare Provider classes will be held as scheduled to continue to support their essential workplace requirements.
If you an essential employee needing layperson certification to continue working (care providers, workplace safety teams, etc.), please scroll down for exceptions to allow you to continue working.
All NH Emergency Orders are posted here: NH Emergency Orders.
Classes this applies to include:
|AHA classes||ASHI classes||Other classes|

If you are scheduled for any of these classes in March, April, or early May I will be rescheduling you to the next available comparable class in late May and June. I will be continuing to follow CDC recommendations of 6′ of social distancing and thus all classes will have 4 or fewer participants. All course participants will be receiving an email with this and additional information.
More classes will be added to the May, June, and July class schedule shortly.
If you are working as an essential employee and your certification will lapse:
I will provide 1:1 blended course skills sessions for essential staff needing certification in order to remain working. Please contact me for information and to schedule.
