One of the reasons people don't take the course is because they are afraid. Going into the class my Mom was terrified and kept saying "I will come, but I am going to be scared". What the course reinforced over and over is how easy it is. We left the class feeling confident that in an emergency situation we would be calm, instead of hysterical, and could react as need be. Even my Mom felt comfortable knowing what to do in an emergency situation. The course was completely hands on using actar dummies to practice our technique. They creeped me out just a little but as our instructor said the point of practicing, as a pose to reading about it, is hopefully your body will react without thinking. You will remember doing it and just do what needs to be done.
If you are a Mother, Aunt, Grandmother or someone who just loves children I highly recommend taking this course. I found this more helpful and informative then pre-natal classes. Please contact your Recreation and community programming for a class near you!
