This includes copying or using someone else's work, as cheating is not allowed on tests, homework, or any other assignments (SCC Policy 5030). All assignments are considered individual assignments unless specifically identified as group work.
Student Conduct Any behavior that disrupts the educational process will not be tolerated. You will be asked to leave the class if your conduct prevents others from learning in a college-level learning environment (SCC Policy 5030). You will not get any credit for the class if you are asked to leave because of disruptive behavior. If you are disturbed by another student let me know and the student will be notified. All students must show up on time prepared. This is a 1 day class only.
We will be performing the skills to the standard of excellence. The results you receive in this class are dependent on your individual dedication to your performance of the skills required. You need to have the skills in your memory, able to be performed sub-consciously. Repetition, practice, and visualization will help. Remember; perform the CPR skills as though you will be doing them on one of your family members some day. Cardiovascular Disease is the number one killer of Americans over the age of 44!
You can injure yourself by doing CPR. Please know your risks and stop before getting injured. We can adapt skills for you. Never perform CPR Skills on another person, utilize the manikins provided.
