    That's all she teaches is the AHA BLS/AED healthcare provider. In EMS that's the only one that is recognized. I'll have to check with her but I believe all she asks is you to make a donation to the rescue squad for the use of the training room and materials. We have loaner books and you watch the dvd in class. The only time I've ever opened an AHA book was for ACLS and PALS. Let me talk to her and see if we can set up a night at the station.
    That would be awesome, thanks!

    p.s. Don't feel old. I'm not that far behind you (I'm 36, but people think I look 18 :P).

    If you can let me know when you are planning a BLS/CPR class, please let me know. Thanks

    Hi Dave, Carolyn, and excitedtobehere,

    My name is Tina and I also live out in Loudoun, west of Leesburg. I would love to see if we could get some carpooling going.

    P.S. Dave, I have you beat in age. I'm 43.

    Tina,

    Check your school email, I sent out a message to everyone. I've found 5 or 6 people that live in Loudoun. There are definitely carpool options for you Send me a email and I'll hook you up.

    Carolyn, Did you get my email?
  6. by   callduck
    I did, there should be a reply sitting in your inbox. I know that various part of NVCC have been down, I guess it's just taking a while to get there. If you don't see it in the next few hours let me know.

    Is this still being planned? Would we get an official CPR card after? I hope i didn't miss it already!

    Julie,

    As far as I know, Dave's trying to get one organized soon, but if it doesn't fall through, we could check with our local rescue station (or other AHA-approved/certified organization) to see when they offer the class. I haven't heard back from him yet. Also, Dave said that the AHA will mail the cards to us once they receive our written test and skills portion.

    Hi Tina!

    I'm not sure if you've already heard from Carolyn, but I'm definitely interested in carpooling! I can't tell you how thrilled I am that there are so many people out this way! I got to meet Carolyn and Tanya in person, and they are super-nice! PM we if you want to talk!

    I can't believe we are all crazy enough to try this. It is such a relief that there are people to drive with and maybe study with. I did talk to Carolyn and would love to meet you all anytime. I emailed Carolyn so just let me know what works for everyone's schedule. Can't wait to meet you all!

    I see there are quite a few people setting up carpools. I also want to know if there's anyone in the DC or Bolling AFB area? I'm moving there in two weeks so I'm hoping to find a study group close by or even carpool.
