Convenient, Effective and Fun CPR Training Increases Willingness to Get Trained

MOUNT KISCO, NY, July 10, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — According to the American Heart Association there were over 326,000 cases of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest in 2015. The average survival rate is 10.6%. However, that rate rises to 31.4% when cardiac arrest is witnessed by a bystander and an AED (automated external defibrillator) is used.

Accel Health & Safety has found that most individuals aren’t trained because they do not want to dedicate 8-10 hours in a group classroom setting. In response, Accel Health & Safety offers private, in-home or in-office classes for four or more students. According to owner and instructor-trainer Jason Goldberg, “Our private class options have been wildly popular. We keep our instructor to student, and student to equipment ratios low. We bring everything into your home or office. This minimizes the hassle and distractions, and ensures that classes are comprehensive and tailored to the individual group.”

Accel Health & Safety offers a wide range of classes including Adult and Pediatric CPR, AED and First Aid, CPR for Professional Rescuers, Bloodborne Pathogens, Advanced First Aid, and Wilderness First Aid, amongst others. The training center also offers Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care for scuba divers.

Accel also offers CPaRtiesSM, which integrates CPR and AED skill training into a fun party environment with interactive games and prizes utilizing the interactive LOOP Learning System. The LOOP Learning System ‘gamifies’ CPR training and provides instant feedback on the performance of the participant. Mr. Goldberg remarked, “Our clients bring in our instructors during cocktail parties, dinner parties, or brunch with friends. People love coming over and learning some basic lifesaving skills – and having a great time doing it. They often get competitive with each other!”

Certification classes offered by Accel are comprehensive. Mr. Goldberg adds, “I believe that training should be comprehensive. CPR and AED training on its own is fine. But, what happens if you encounter someone sitting on the ground with a terrible wound. Would you know what to do? What happens if that person now becomes unconscious? How do your priorities change? Our classes incorporate primary and secondary assessments, CPR and AED training, in addition to comprehensive first aid training. We spend quite a bit of time running simulations. I want my students to leave the class feeling confident that they can evaluate a situation and render the proper care. We only use the best equipment with feedback monitors so students know that they are performing CPR effectively.”
