By Justin Haagen on Jul 07, 2021

Safety Matters Certified Training, LLC is providing the following information, available from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), to help address questions about the potential effects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on emergency medical care training using the ASHI and American Heart Association training programs.

Safety Practices and Preventative Measures to be followed:

Mask Policy: Masks are required for all Non-Vaccinated students, guests, and employees. If you enter our facility without a Mask, you are Self-Attesting to the fact that you are Fully Vaccinated. All are welcome to wear Masks. We have chosen not to ask you about your private medical decisions.

 Safety Practices and Preventative Measures to be followed:

  • Training equipment will be thoroughly cleaned after every training class, following the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting.
  • Classroom surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned after every training class.
  • Students will wear gloves while performing hands on skills portions of the class and disinfecting wipes will be available to ensure equipment is thoroughly disinfected between student use. 
  • Face Shields will not be used to practice rescue breaths. Pocket Masks with 1 way value will be used for breathes if the student is comfortable doing so.  1-way valves divert exhaled air, blood or other bodily fluids from the rescuer.
