    Also in a real situation, your adrenalin is pumping and you may be moving like you have never moved before.

    Our CPR class was 4 hours long and no biggie. We watched a ton of videos and then performed the steps from the video on a dummy on a table. Then we took a test. It was pretty easy.

    I just took a CPR class a few weeks ago. It wasnt bad at all. The whole class only lasted 4 hours. We did have to get on the floor, but it wasnt a bunch of moving around. We stayed down there, and did the breaths and compressions to a video. Good Luck

    I took a CPR class and we did scenarios where we actually had to run down stairs to find an AED. We were on the floor the whole time practicing with a DVD. It was hard work and I pray that I am not alone when I have to give CPR. My knees and my hands were hurting.

    No sweat but...

    1.Don't wear lipstick

    2.Put your hair up out of the way

    I would up looking like some Insane Clown Posse reject, had the lipstick all over my face and as picking my hair out of the sticky mess.
