Spring means getting outside for a variety of activities. From art shows to baseball games, and everything in between, there’s a good chance you’ll find yourself outside in a large crowd sometime this spring or summer.
Why Get CPR Certified in the Spring?
Lifeguards have to be CPR certified so if you’re due for recertification (every two years) or are a new lifeguard, spring is the perfect time to get it done. Pools, beaches, and camps start hiring summer lifeguards in the spring and being CPR certified puts you ahead of the game.
This is also a great time for camp counselors, babysitters, and nannies to get pediatric CPR certified. Camps also start hiring staff in the spring and if you’re a nanny, you’re probably finalizing your summer plans. Whether your job requires CPR certification or not, you’ll be prepared.
Spring and summer are also great times for teachers and other school faculty to get or renew their CPR certification. The extra time off gives you an opportunity to complete your certification without taking time off from work. If you’re an administrator, this is a great time to set up group certification for your staff!
And if you enjoy doing those fun springtime activities like art & craft shows, food truck rodeos, baseball games, music festivals, knowing CPR can save a life. Every minute counts in an emergency and being able to administer CPR or BLS while waiting for emergency services can make all the difference.
