How to Host a Training
PHS trainings can easily be implemented in any community.The program can be offered as small training sessions in a company or community organization or as large community events serving hundreds.
The basic planning steps for a larger event remain the same but the coordination gets a bit more complex, require more planning time and more marketing to assure a good turnout. A Step by Step planning guide and a Checklist to help keep track of the different pieces can be downloaded.
Non-certification PHS training sessions lasts only about 40 minutes and are divided into watching a 12 minute video, produced by KOAT and Dr. Barry Ramo, followed by a 15 minute skill session led by the facilitator and a short demonstration of an AED. (if you or your group needs to be CPR certified please refer to organizations like the American Heart Association or the Red Cross to get the training which is typically 4 hours long for CPR alone and will not be free)
Hosting a training requires an individual or group to lead the training. The leader can ask for support from the PHS coordinator, Amanda Gabaldon. She can assist you in organizing the event from every aspect including logistics, marketing and planning. The step-by-step planning guide is an easy to follow outline.
